Dorian Finney-Smith to Decide Tuesday

A huge recruit on the Virginia Tech landscape will make his decision on Tuesday afternoon.  Dorian Finney-Smith from Norcom High School (defending state champs) in Portsmouth, VA will choose between VT, florida, and odu.  Dorian is a top 50 recruit in both’s and’s rankings for the Class of 2011.  Dorian is listed around 6’7″ and approximately 190 lbs.  He projects as a small forward.

Dorian’s brother Ben plays for odu, but Tech now has John Richardson as an assistant coach after being hired away from odu.  Richardson is very influential from all accounts. 

If I had to guess, I’d give the Hokies the edge here but florida seems to have made up ground.  odu I believe was just a courtesy visit.  In the end, I’m predicting orange and maroon.
