Virginia Tech basketball: 2024 point guard Ben Hammond commits to the Hokies

It’s been a wild offseason for Virginia Tech men’s basketball coach Mike Young. After the season ended in March, Young saw over half of his roster from last season hit the NCAA transfer portal looking for a bigger payday.

Young could’ve panicked, but he didn’t. He went right to work shaping Virginia Tech’s roster, adding several transfers. Then, last week, the Hokies lost their first addition from the portal, Jordan Ivy-Curry, who backed off his pledge to Tech, leaving another hole.

While Young remains aggressive in the transfer portal, he landed an excellent high school prospect on Monday when point guard Ben Hammond committed to Virginia Tech.
