After last week’s departures, Virginia Tech men’s basketball received an addition to the 2024-25 team with the commitment from UTSA SG Jordan Ivy-Curry.

He’s the Hokies first transfer portal addition and chose Virginia Tech over many including Ole Miss and Seton Hall who were among pushing the hardest for him along with VT. Many other schools were also reported to have made contact with him including Kentucky, Auburn, Texas A&M, Virginia, Oklahoma, Xavier, Arkansas, Penn State, Boston College, LSU, Arizona State, and more.

This comes after Mike Young and a pair of assistants visited Ivy-Curry on Monday, as our Tim Thomas reported for TLP Insiders on Sunday.

Ivy-Curry is a 6’2 170-pound guard from La Marque, Texas. He will be a fifth-year senior next season and has spent three years at UTSA and one at Pacific. Curiously, Ivy-Curry played his first two years for the Roadrunners before transferring to Pacific. He averaged 10.2 points per game on 36.7% shooting from the field in his first two seasons.

At Pacific, Ivy-Curry averaged 10.3 points per game, but came off the bench and started just seven of the 33 games he played in throughout the 2022-23 season. This past season, Ivy-Curry returned to UTSA and averaged 17.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game in 21 games off the bench. He also shot 38.7% from three-point range on 5.7 attempts a night last season.

Ivy-Curry is known as a scorer. He’s posted 16 games of 20 points or more and has two career games of 30 points or more. His career high came back in January when Ivy-Curry totaled 38 points on 10-20 shooting against 2024 NCAA Tournament at-large bid Florida Atlantic. As a freshman back in the 2020-21 season, Ivy-Curry was on the Conference-USA All-Freshman team.

With Ivy-Curry in the fold for the Hokies, this gives Mike Young a guard who could be in the starting lineup or come off the bench. Ivy-Curry joins soon to be sophomore guards Jayden Young and Brandon Rechsteiner in the backcourt. Ivy-Curry brings ball handling, shooting and experience to the floor and projects to be one of the primary guards in the rotation for the Hokies in 2024.
