According to The Portal Report, Virginia Tech is set to host Clemson PF transfer RJ Godfrey on a visit this Thursday.

Godfrey was an important piece in the Tigers’ run to the Elite Eight this past season averaging 6.1 points and 3.4 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game while shooting 59.4% from the field. He did not start for the Tigers this past season, but was their primary frontcourt backup as a sophomore behind the standout duo of PJ Hall and Ian Schieffelin.

He is also currently taking a visit to Oklahoma according to The Portal Report.

There’s no doubt that Godfrey would fill a clear need at the four, with Robbie Beran and Mekhi Long both being out of eligibility. Charleston F Ben Burnham has the versatility to play the four as well, but Godfrey would be a strong fit who has proven to be a quality ACC player while having plenty of potential to grow into a league standout.

His advanced metrics are also quite good as this past season, he had a player efficiency rating of 18.5, a true shooting percentage of 61.1%, and a box score plus/minus of 4.2 including a defensive box score plus/minus of 3.5 which is quite good.

There’s no doubt that Godfrey has the talent to be a high-impact starter next season in a major conference and would be a very strong addition for the Hokies. Of course, Tech is facing some tough competition for him with Oklahoma being a major player but the Hokies clearly are in the hunt with a chance to impress later this week.
