Point guard is poised to be a priority for Virginia Tech in the 2021 recruiting class with the Hokies recently extending an in-state offer to three-star PG Angelo Brizzi.

The Hokies became the fifth program from one of the six major conferences to offer Brizzi joining Villanova, Georgetown, California, and Colorado. Brizzi currently holds more than 20 offers according to Verbal Commits.
Brizzi told us that he was "super excited and thankful" to receive the offer during a phone call with head coach Mike Young. Overall, his conversation with Young went quite well in part due to his long-standing relationship with the Hokies' head coach as Brizzi shared with us.
"It was great! It’s not the first time I’ve spoken with him, so I’ve gotten to know him pretty well," Brizzi said.
The offer also likely wasn't too big of a surprise to Brizzi given how the Hokies' interest in him has been growing since Tech's interested in him started last summer.
"They’ve been in contact with me since last summer, so I would say their interest has slowly grown from then until now," Brizzi said.
That long-time interest has allowed Angelo Brizzi and Mike Young to build a strong relationship with the three-star PG from Northern Virginia saying that he feels "pretty comfortable" around Young.
Currently, it's too early for Brizzi to start having schools that are standing out for him, but it does seem clear that he has plenty of interest in the Hokies.
"I don’t have any sort of standings because I haven’t begun to narrow it down at all, but I’m very excited to keep talking with Coach Young and the staff, and learn more about Tech!" Brizzi said.
Currently, schools aren't able to host players physically on campus for visits but they are able to host virtual visits with Brizzi set to have virtual visits to Villanova and George Washington this Thursday. Brizzi added that he is working on setting up a virtual visit to Virginia Tech, which would come several months after he visited Virginia Tech in person this past September.
Virginia Tech is making point guard a priority in their 2021 class with three-star in-state PG Angelo Brizzi emerging as a priority target for the Hokies.
