Jalen Hudson Commits to Hokies for 2014

Jalen Hudson, a 6’4″/6’5″ shooting guard, committed to the Hokies late last week.  He’s the third member of the Class of 2014 for VT and goes to St. Vincent/St. Mary (yes, Lebron James’s alma mater in Akron, OH).  He doesn’t have quite the same fanfare though, he’s a 3-star recruit (#40 SG according to ESPN) who had a bunch of offers from mid-majors and chose VT over an offer from arkansas of the SEC.

Tech now has two off-guards and a small forward in next year’s class. All are in the 3-star range.

FYI: No relation to Dorenzo Hudson, either.

He also researches topics of interest such as Hokie recruits, program revenue, statistical data on the team, previews VT opponents, and discusses his favorite bourbons/Scotches. In addition to his passion for Hokie hoops, Niemo has attended 126 straight VT football home games (every game since '94), eclipsing the 100 mark in September of '09 and recently attended his 20th consecutive VT/uva game. During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.
