Virginia Tech felt really good about their chances of landing Frank Mason, a 5’11″ point guard who is ranked #131 overall by Rivals.com in the Class of 2013. Mason, from Petersburg, VA and the same high school as Cadarian Raines, originally committed to towson university, but decided to go to Massanutten Military Academy for a post-grad year. He re-opened his recruitment, but verballed to kansas after a visit to Lawrence this past weekend.
Tech currently has two recruits in their Class of 2013 (G Donte Clark and F/C Trevor Thompson). They only have nine scholarship players on the roster for this coming season (eight active plus transfer Adam Smith), and we know they’ll lose at least one player (Erick Green) after this season. That means VT could sign up to five players in this class and still fit within the NCAA limit of 13 scholarships.
