Some surprising news emerged out of Blacksburg today as the Virginia Tech men's basketball program announced that P.J. Horne has entered the transfer portal.
Horne was expected to start at power forward for the Hokies this upcoming season after a solid junior season during which he averaged 7.6 points and 4.2 rebounds in 28.1 minutes per game, starting in 30 games. Horne also developed into a respectable outside scorer shooting 34.9% from the three-point range. He will have one season of eligibility remaining.
Horne becomes the fourth Hokie to leave the Virginia Tech men's basketball program this offseason with Landers Nolley transferring to Memphis, Isaiah Wilkins transferring to Wake Forest, and Jonathan Kabongo being medically disqualified. The Hokies have added three players since the end of the season in transfers Cartier Diarra and Cordell Pemsl, and three-star PF David N'Guessan. Tech currently has one open scholarship for the 2020-21 season.
We will have more on this story as it develops.
