Recruiting News | One Future Hokie Plays On

TYRONE GARLAND:

Tyrone Garland and the John Bartram High School Braves will play Imhotep for the Philly Public League title on Tuesday night at temple’s arena.  Bartram has already captured the Public League Class AAAA title and will continue on in the state tournament regardless of the outcome on Tuesday.

For the season, Garland is averaging 25.0 ppg and has surpassed the 30 point mark four times this year.  His season high is 43.

Tyrone, a 2010 signee of VT, has also moved up to third on the all time Philly Public League scoring list with over 2,100 career points.  He surpassed Gerald Henderson of duke and now the NBA.  Garland is also quickly gaining on Wilt Chamberlain.  He won’t have a shot at #1 though, with Maureece Rice sitting at over 2,600 points.

JARELL EDDIE:

Jarell Eddie saw his career at Cannon School near Charlotte end in the second round of the NCISAA State Tournament.  Eddie finished the season averaging 22.5 ppg.  At one point in the season, he had a streak of nine straight games of 20 or more points.  By my calculations, Jarell came close to 3,000 career points (he passed 2,000 last year), but I believe he came up short.

Jarell will join the Hokies next season.

C.J. BARKSDALE:

The GW Eagles season ended well short of expectations.  The Danville school was #1 in the Virginia State AAA (top level) rankings earlier in the year, but lost in their first Northwest Region Playoff game to Stafford.  GW also lost in the district finals.

C.J. Barksdale averaged 15.0 ppg on the season and had at least 12 double-doubles from the boxscores I could find in 21 games.

C.J. is a verbal commit for the 2011 class.  You have to be excited about the inside presence he will bring to VT in two years.

    Still very excited about what CJ will bring in 2011… but at the moment I am getting way MORE excited about seeing Tyrone and Jarell in Hokie uniforms next year. Pretty amazing seasons that they’ve each put up… hopefully Tyrone can go ahead and win that PA state title!!

    As for GW, though… very disappointed in how they finished up. The loss to Patrick Henry in the district finals I can understand… because they are definitely a legit contender. But to lose to Stafford in the first round of the regionals was just highly unexpected to me. Granted, it was just a tough year all around with Howerton going down to injury and the poor play that ensued afterwards… and then to have him come back right at the end of the year and have to try to fit him back into the team definitely threw the chemistry off a bit. GW never really got into a good consistent groove the entire year, and will now have to look towards next season… Oh well, I don’t think anybody is going to beat Petersburg this year anyways.
