2006's Munson Ends The Process

Nigel Munson, the point guard that helped DeMatha win its first WCAC championship since 2002, is off the board. The junior is headed to the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Virginia Tech has itself a new and very experienced floor leader general. On Tuesday, 6-foot-1 point guard Nigel Munson committed to the Hokies after considering Xavier, Miami, Arkansas, Georgia and Clemson.

"He just feels like it's the right decision," DeMatha Catholic head coach Mike Jones said. "He's comfortable with the coaches there and they've been recruiting him for a long time, longer than any other staff."

Munson averaged 7.7 assists last season, breaking the previous single season record at the hallowed school. He also accounted for 12.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and shot 91% from the free throw line.

Virginia Tech head coach Seth Greenberg worked tremendously hard and was consistent and diligent in his pursuit of Munson. "Since he's gotten the job, they've been in as many times as the NCAA would allow. He didn't want to be anybody's second or third choice and he wanted to make sure that the school wanted him," Jones said.

Munson will major in graphic design at Virginia Tech but you can bet his minor will be basketball, specifically when it comes to leading the Hokies. "He's a tremendous leader," Jones said. "The team went as he went. He was the one guy on our team that we had to have on the floor as much as possible. He needed to be on the floor as much as possible."

Seth Greenberg is likely to feel the same way.
