Originally from Indiana, Brentwood (Tenn.) 2018 guard Darius Garland has spent the summer with the St. Louis Eagles on the EYBL circuit. And as his game has risen, so has his recruiting profile.
Garland's committable offers now include Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Wake, Virginia, USC, Arizona State and Xavier. But plenty of others are in hot pursuit, including Indiana, Iowa St, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Kentucky.
Virginia Tech has remained among those in pursuit as well, behind coach Buzz Williams. The Hokies haven't just said they wanted to recruit Garland hard, though, they showed it last week.
"They text me and call me a lot," Garland said. "They said they were gonna be recruiting me hard and they were gonna be at all my games at Peach Jam. I saw them in the crowd last night and today, so I guess they’re on me hard."
Garland has visited Indiana, Vanderbilt and Louisville to this point. He said he has no current timetable on any cut downs or a decision.
