One of Mike Young’s first transfer portal commits last month at Virginia Tech was UTSA guard Jordan Ivy-Curry. He was seen as a backcourt replacement for Sean Pedulla or MJ Collins after both Hokies guards entered the transfer portal themselves. Pedulla recently committed to Mississippi and Collins committed to Vanderbilt along with former Hokie Tyler Nickel.

Ivy-Curry’s tenure in Blacksburg won’t be soon forgotten. A couple of weeks after committing, he announced that he was declaring for the 2024 NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility. Then on April 29, he de-committed from Virginia Tech and re-opened his recruiting for the 2024-25 season.

Since he re-entered the portal, he has heard from several schools and he has reportedly cut his list down to three schools and will visit each of them this week.

Jordan Ivy-Curry narrowed his list to three schools

According to Joe Tipton of On3 Sports, Ivy-Curry has narrowed his three schools down to Central Florida, Wake Forest, and Auburn. Last season for the Roadrunners, Ivy-Curry averaged 171. Points, 5.2 rebounds and three assists a game.

In the overall big picture, what has happened over the last month is the current state of college sports, enter the transfer portal, commit, de-commit, re-open your recruitment, and find another school. It’s the professional sports version of free agency. For Young and Virginia Tech, it leaves another spot for the veteran coach to fill as he looks to add to his 2024-25 roster.

He still has commitments from Ben Burnham from the College of Charleston, Hysier Miller from Temple, Rodney Brown from California, Toibu Lawal from VCU, and Monday, four-star point guard Ben Hammond committed to the Hokies. If there is one early takeaway from this list that has committed, it’s that it’s an athletic group that will get up and down the floor and play good defense.
