Virginia Tech is finding success on the recruiting front. It may not be long until that translates to success on the basketball court.
Wabissa Bede, a point guard in the class of 2017, has committed to playing for the Virginia Tech Hokies the upcoming season under coach Buzz Williams.
Bede is currently ranked 77th in the country by 247sports, giving the Hokies their second top-100 player to commit. Bede also took visits to Butler, UMass and Lasalle before ultimately deciding on playing under coach Williams.
Virginia Tech figures to end a ten year tournament drought this year, as they are returning much of the previous years team, mostly notably Seth Allen and Zach LeDay. After going 10-8 in the ACC last year, including victories over top-10 ranked Miami and North Carolina, Williams is expecting a breakout season out of his team of Hokies.
Williams, who recently had his contract extended through 2022-2023, has a career winning percentage of .599, (.458 at VaTech), and should improve for his 3rd straight year at the helm with the Hokies. He coached previously at Marquette in the Big East.
