Hokies Pick Up Commitment

Ricky Stokes and the Virginia Tech Hokies recently gained a commitment from a swingman. The Hokies first commitment comes from a member of the Tennessee Travelers.

Robinson To Blacksburg

During last season, Knoxville (TN) Bearden small forward Winston Robinson took an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech. That was all Robinson needed to see of the Hokies campus and over the weekend, announced that he's off to Blacksburg.

"It just felt right," Robinson said. "It was close to where my family is from and then can come see me." Robinson's official visit to Tech will be the weekend of Oct. 13.

Robinson had offers from and considered Bowling Green, Tennessee Tech, Chattanooga, Towson, Alabama State and Arkansas State. This summer, he played AAU ball for Charlie Benson's Tennessee Travelers. Last year, he averaged 10 points a game for Bearden.
