Virginia Tech basketball landed another recruit this week as they received commitment from Forward T.J. Lang. Lang is 6’7′, and is coming off a huge year. In his junior season he averaged 17.1 points and 4.9 rebounds at McGill Toolen high school. His father is Antonio Lang, who is a former Duke stand-out.

Lang had over 20 offers, but knew Virginia Tech was the best fit for him. He expressed great confidence in the school, and his decision he said,

"I just prayed about it and felt like today was the right time to announce my commitment and Virginia Tech was the right school, You barely find dedication in a coaching staff like that staff has shown me. I just feel 100 percent comfortable there.-“[Quote from al.com]"

T.J. Lang will join Justin Bibbs as members of 2014 commits as they look to make a difference in the Virginia Tech Basketball program.
