Don’t forget to check out our 2011 Recruit News and Game Stats Page (Link) that has the score and stats for the four VT signees for 2011 for almost every Norcom and Hargrave game to date. Both teams are really kicking butt…
The Norcom Greyhounds are 21-1 and #1 in the state of Virginia (AAA). The defending state champs got as high as #4 in the nation in the ESPN Rise poll. They currently sit at #7 in the land thanks to wins over #5 Findlay Prep and other powers like Word of God (Raleigh – John Wall’s school) and Dematha. Dorian Finney-Smith, now a 5-star recruit in the ESPN rankings, is averaging 19 points per game [I have stats from 17 of his 21 games]. His high game for the year is 32 points.
The Hargrave Post-Grad team is 21-0 and just bombard their overwhelmed opponents. C.J. Barksdale scores between 16 and 20 most nights, but had 42 points and 13 rebounds against roanoke earlier in the year. Robert Brown is stroking it from the perimeter, but can also attack the rim. He is scoring around 15 points per game. And Marquis Rankin is showing he’s a real field general. Dude can rack up the assists.
So Tech’s 2011 signees are a combined 42-1 on the year! I’d say they are winners and hopefully will continue that way next year.
