Evan Daniels of 247 Sports is reporting that Virginia Tech SG/SF Isaiah Wilkins will be entering the transfer portal.
Virginia Tech guard Isaiah Wilkins is transferring, a source tells @247Sports. Averaged 4.3 PPG and 2.6 RPG this past season.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) March 31, 2020
Wilkins averaged 4.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.0 assists in 14.4 minutes per game during his two seasons in Blacksburg including 4.3 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game this past season. He will have two seasons of eligibility after sitting out next season wherever he transfers.
Virginia Tech has been consistently reaching out to transfers and even a new high school target in former Wichita State commit and 2020 four-star SG/SF JaDun Michael, raising suspicion that another transfer was coming after Landers Nolley's decision to transfer.
Even with Wilkins' departure, it doesn't seem that Virginia Tech has to try to pursue a specific position given the volume of players they have on the wing.
However, this could free up Tech to do a couple different things including pursue a rising high school player like Michael, or a transfer like Western Michigan's Brandon Johnson who would fit well at the power forward for VT and add some more much-needed size in the frontcourt. Additionally, this could open the door for Tech to pursue a point guard to add to Wabissa Bede and Jalen Cone including a transfer who may have to sit out for a year and have a couple of years of eligibility remaining, similar to Wilkins and his eligibility timeline.
We will have more as this story develops.
