Mike Young and Virginia Tech have sent out their fair amount of 2021 offers recently with point guard Kaleb Brown among the most recipients.
"I was really excited. I ran into my mom's room to tell her because I know how much she likes them, and Coach (Mike) Young," Brown said about his reaction to receiving a Hokies' offer.
Kaleb Brown received the offer via a phone call from head coach Mike Young, a clear indication of the Hokies' great interest in the talented point guard.
Unsurprisingly, Brown has been receiving interest from Mike Young from well before Young's time at Virginia Tech.
"Coach (Mike) Young came to a few of our high school practices this year, and some aau games this June as well as a few phone calls," Brown said.
As Brown mentioned, this wasn't the first conversation that Brown had with Mike Young with this one going beyond simply offering him.
"We talked about everything from my skill set and “high IQ” as a point guard and other positions as well as my role changing on my high school team and how he’s looking for more than just good player but good kids," Brown said.
Looking ahead, Brown told us that he "would love to" take a visit to Virginia Tech while also looking at taking visits to Vanderbilt, Missouri, UAB, and Minnesota. Of those schools, only the Hokies and Golden Gophers have offered Brown so far.
While Brown may only have four power conference offers, that list seems likely to grow given his versatile, do-it-all nature at the point. The stats back that up as Brown told us that he averaged 12 points, 9 assists, 6.2 rebounds, and 2 steals per game while shooting 40.1% from the field and 84% from the free-throw lines. Additionally, Brown had 4 triple-doubles during the past high school season.
Kaleb Brown is an emerging recruit with Virginia Tech becoming among the first to offer the talented 2021 point guard. The question is can the Hokies build off being one of the first to offer him though if Brown and his mother's reactions are any indication, it's that the Hokies will be a top contender for him.
