Devin Wilson Picks Virginia Tech

Posted In Recruiting - By Josh Holman On Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 With 0 Comments


Devin Wilson, a 2013 6’4″ point guard made his decision Monday night to play for Virginia Tech next season. Wilson picked the Hokies over George Mason and St Joseph’s. Wilson told Mike White of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that it came down to Virginia Tech and George Mason:

“I was going back and forth between Virginia Tech and George Mason,” Wilson said. “Then my dad said something to me that really stuck out. He said if you took the coaches away from the schools, what school would you still be happy with? I said then that I wanted Virginia Tech.”

Something else played a role in Wilson’s decision. “It helped that the ACC probably has the best competition in the country,” he said.

While losing out on Wilson is disappointing, Mason is still involved with a few other outstanding 2013 guards including Jalen James and Marquise Moore. James is scheduled to be on campus during the first week of May. Mason has one scholarship available currently because of the announced departure of Vertrail Vaughns.
