Virginia Tech men’s basketball coach James Johnson has added another recruit: senior off-guard Jalen Hudson from St. Vincent-St. Mary in Akron — LeBron James’ old high school.
That means Johnson will sign three players in the NCAA’s fall signing period, along with Justin Bibbs and T.J. Lang.
The 6-6, 185-pound Hudson was also considering Arkansas.
Hudson is rated the No. 161 player in the nation by 247 sports and the No. 41 off-guard. He had a game-high 17 points in his team’s loss in the Ohio Division II state title game last season.
Hudson transferred to St. Vincent-St. Mary from Benedictine in Richmond before his junior year.
Bibbs is rated No. 132 nationally among all players and the No. 34 off-guard by 247. Bibbs is rated No. 142 among all players and a three-star recruit by Rivals.
