Three-Star PF David N'Guessan Commits to Virginia Tech

After taking official visits to Virginia Tech and Saint Joseph's in recent weeks, three-star power forward David N'Guessan announced today that he has committed to Virginia Tech.

David N'Guessan becomes the third member of Virginia Tech's 2020 recruiting class joining four-star guards Joe Bamisile and Darius Maddox. N'Guessan also gives the Hokies some much-needed size in the frontcourt after adding Keve Aluma and John Ojiako last offseason.

N'Guessan had this to say about why he chose Virginia Tech.

"Virginia Tech felt like home, and I'll have a chance to play in the ACC under a great coaching staff," N'Guessan said.

Earlier this week, N'Guessan had a "good" conversation with head coach Mike Young where they talked both about his recruitment and the coronavirus pandemic. N'Guessan that he has built a "good" relationship with Young which likely played a major factor in his recruitment.

He also chose the Hokies because of how well he would fit at the four in Mike Young's system saying that it was a "big factor" in making his decision.

That shouldn't be surprising given how N'Guessan brings the type of size and versatility that the Hokies are looking for in their frontcourt at the 4. He told us that he feels his versatility is a strength of his game while adding this on the areas of his game that he wants to focus on improving the most.

"I want to be a better ball handler, to be more consistent when shooting, and I want to become stronger," N'Guessan said.

David N'Guessan is already a productive, versatile four who could be able to break into VT's rotation as a freshman after he told us that he averaged 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists per game for Mt. Zion Prep.

With N'Guessan on board, the Hokies have landed the frontcourt player that they were hoping to add. Now, the question is whether the Hokies could add another piece or 2 via the high school/JUCO route and/or through the transfer portal. For now, that will all depend on whether any other current Hokies choose to move on.
