Virginia Tech is looking to add one more grad transfer with offseason with the Hokies making the top 3 for Delaware grad transfer Justyn Mutts.
The Hokies were joined by Mississippi State and Houst in the top 3 for Mutts, who has 2 years of eligibility left after graduating in 3 years.
Mutts started his career at High Point spending one season there before two seasons at Delaware, one of which was spent sitting out due to NCAA rules. He averaged 12.2 points, 8.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 blocks in 31.8 minutes per game while shooting 53.8% from the field and 73.5% from the free-throw line.
Mutts may not necessarily stretch the floor as a shooter, but he fits well as an athletic 4 at 6'7'' who has proven to be a quality player on both ends of the floor. Mutts would also add some more size to a Hokies' frontcourt that has seen P.J. Horne transfer to Georgia and Cordell Pemsl arrive from Iowa.
Given the fact that he still has two years of eligibility, Mutts is in a more unique position in that he may look for the team best positioned for success over two years, possibly considering younger rosters with more upside rather than teams that have a one-year window. The Hokies and Mississippi State would seem to fit that mold more while Houston may be the best poisitioned for success next season.
Keep an eye on Justyn Mutts as the Hokies look to make one more frontcourt addition after P.J. Horne's departure.
