Chris Vann, a talented and highly decorated guard from Woodbridge (VA) Gar-Field, committed to the program after hearing from Longwood, Sacred Heart and Wisconsin-Green Bay.
"My family and I and the coaching staff discussed it," Vann said. "Academically and basketball wise and they would allow me to play the wing. I'm used to the two. They were telling me that they wouldn't try to force me to play the point. They know I'm capable of scoring."
And capable he is.
As a junior, he torched the nets for 20.8 points a game. He was named the conference player of the year and NW Region POY. He was first team all-state according to the Virginia Coaches' Association and a fourth team all-met selection.
