Virginia Tech's 2020-21 season may not be over yet, but the Hokies are already building out their 2021-22 team landing a commitment from talented grad transfer PG Storm Murphy from Mike Young's former stomping grounds at Wofford.
Murphy had a breakout season for the Terriers this year averaging 17.8 points, 4.3 assists, 3.3 rebounds, and 1 steal in 34.4 minutes per game while shooting 47% from the field, 40% from three-point range, and 84.3% from the free-throw line. Murphy's impressive season helped him earn All-Southern Conference First Team honors. He will have one season of eligibility in Blacksburg.
He becomes the third former Wofford player or commit to join Mike Young in Blacksburg after Keve Aluma transferred to Virginia Tech and Hunter Cattoor flipped his commitment to the Hokies in the immediate aftermath of Tech hiring Young.
Point guard has been a weak point as the Hokies have been looking for the complete package on the offensive end with Wabissa Bede being consistent with a low ceiling while Hunter Cattoor has more scoring upside but also more inconsistency.
Murphy would seem to be the complete package on paper that the Hokies have been looking for at point guard. His transition to Blacksburg should be aided by the fact that he started in Mike Young's system during his first two seasons at Wofford with Young's replacement being a former assistant of his.
We will have more as this story develops.
