On Thursday, combo guard Tyrone Appleton picked the Hokies after considering Washington and a host of other programs. Appleton is in his prep year at Cincinnati's Harmony Prep and ran with the SYF Players last summer.
"Virginia Tech recruited me the hardest," Appleton said. "I like the coaches and I went up on a visit and it was cool. I love their style of play and it's the ACC."
Appleton brings a diverse game to Hokieland. Capable of playing both guard positions and doing so with scoring ability and athleticism, he'll be a valuable piece to the puzzle for Virginia Tech.
"They got guards coming back but I think I can step in and be a big fit for them. I like to get up and down the floor."
Appleton joins Munson, power forward Jeff Allen and forward Lewis Witcher.
