Devin Wilson, a point guard from Montour High School in suburban Pittsburgh (McKees Rocks, PA), told me tonight (Monday) that he has orally committed to Virginia Tech,
He will be one of two point guards to sign with Tech on signing day Wednesday, along with previous commit Malik Mueller. Tech is in need of a new starting point guard to replace Erick Green.
Wilson (6-4, 180) said he picked Tech over George Mason and St. Joe’s. He also had scholarship offers from WVU, Robert Morris, Hofstra, St. Bonaventure and W. Michigan.
He earned first-team all-state honors (Class AAA) this year from The Associated Press. He was named player of the year on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s all-Western Pa. team. He averaged 17 points per game during the regular season, and he led his team to the Western Pa. Interscholastic Athletic League Class AAA championship (his district title). He also was named the Pittsburgh area’s player of the year by the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
He also was a football standout.
The chance to play in the ACC was one reason he picked Tech. He said he also picked Tech because he felt comfortable on his visit a few weeks ago.
“I like the coaches, I like the campus. It just felt right,” he said.
Wilson said he is a “true point guard.”
“I’m a great passer, I’m a great field general,” he said.
