Hokies Get Commitment From Point Guard Hank Thorns
by Chris Coleman,

Seth Greenberg has added one more player to his 2007 recruiting class. Las Vegas point guard Hank Thorns announced this evening that he will be attending Virginia Tech, beginning with the 2007-8 season.

"I'm committed to Virginia Tech," Thorns said. "I'm very excited. I plan on attending summer school on July 1st. I'm extremely excited about it."

Thorns visited Virginia Tech last week and wasted little time before committing. Thorns was given a personal tour of the campus by Coach Greenberg, and he immediately felt comfortable with Virginia Tech. "It was great," Thorns said. "I felt at home with Coach Greenberg. The whole team is like a family."

Thorns is a 5-9 scoring point guard who averaged 27.6 points, 12.5 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game as a senior at Valley High School in Las Vegas. His stock rose recently after he scored 37 points against Boo Williams' Virginia-based AAU team.

The Hokies and Old Dominion offered, while Virginia and Kentucky were closely evaluating Thorns. UVA is rumored to be interested in offering Thorns, but they were forced to wait to see if Sean Singletary keeps his name in the NBA Draft. Kentucky wanted Thorns to visit before offering.

Fortunately for Virginia Tech, Thorns did not want to wait. He made his decision recently, and he announced it this evening ... he'll be a Hokie.

For more comments from Thorns, and for comments from his coach on his style of play, please see our TSL Pass update.
