Norcom High School standout Dorian Finney-Smith of Portsmouth committed to Virginia Tech today, according to the Virginian-Pilot.
Finney-Smith, a 6-foot-7 forward, chose the Hokies over Florida, Old Dominion, Virginia and Maryland.
He is one of the nation’s top prospects in the Class of 2011. He’s ranked No. 13 by ESPN, No. 25 by MaxPreps, No. 28 by Scout and No. 37 by Rivals.
Finney-Smith said he wanted to make his decision before his senior season began and didn’t want it to be a last-minute decision.
Last season he averaged 19.7 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks to help lead the Greyhounds to the Group AAA title.
He was named the Associated Press Group AAA Boys Basketball Player of the Year, the Virginia High School Coaches Association State Player of the Year and the All-Tidewater Player of the Year. He also was named to the ESPN RISE All-American team.
