Virginia Tech women's basketball made a major in-state recruiting splash today as the Hokies landed a commitment from four-star wing Alyssa Andrews out of Colgan High School in Manassas, VA.
Andrews is the second Virginia Tech commit for the 2021 cycle along with three-star guard Brianna Turnage. Andrews is ranked 65th nationall among 2021 prospects by ESPN including eighth among wings, making her the highest-ranked recruit to choose the Hokies since Elizabeth Kitley chose VT as a five-star recruit.
Andrews was impressive this past season averaging 22.1 points and 12.1 rebounds per game on her way to earning many honors including VHSL Group 6 Player of the Year and a spot on the All-Met First Team for women's players in the Washington D.C. area.
Kenny Brooks has landed talented players in a multitiude of ways via the transfer market, JUCO transfers, and through traditional high school recruiting. The addition of Alyssa Andrews is a great sign that Tech's success is continuing to boost their status among the best recruits in Virginia and continue to rise up the ranks in the ACC.
