Virginia Tech Lands Three-Star Guard Nahiem Alleyne; Adds to 2019 Recruiting Class

On Sunday morning, Mike Young added Nahiem Alleyne to the Hokies’ 2019 recruiting class, a 6’3” two-guard from Lawrenceville, GA. He will join Jalen Cone and Hunter Cattoor as incoming freshmen to Blacksburg this fall. Alleyne, ranked as a three-star recruit by 247sports, had offers from Nebraska, Hofstra, St. Johns, and USF. Alleyne is a 2020 prospect that appears to be reclassifying into the 2019 class, which will put him in Blacksburg this fall.

Big news I just confirmed with Nahiem that he will be reclassifying to the 2019 class!

With both Jalen Cone and Nahiem Alleyne reclassifying a year early, Tech will field one of the youngest backcourts in the country.
