To say that there has been a mass exodus out of Blacksburg for the Virginia Tech men's basketball teams since the Hokies were eliminated in the second round of the NIT in late March at Ohio State would be an understatement.

First Lynn Kidd, then Sean Pedulla, followed by MJ Collins, Tyler Nickel, and John Camden. Head coach Mike Young has seen his top seven players from this past season leave either through graduation or the transfer portal.

The biggest name is Pedulla and the junior point guard from Oklahoma has had a lot of suitors since entering the portal. First Kentucky was interested in him before Wildcats coach John Calipari left for Arkansas. Last week, Pedulla had a visit to Oklahoma and this week, it's been reported that he has a visit scheduled with a school that was just in the Final Four two weeks ago.

Sean Pedulla to visit Alabama this week

Travis Branham of 247Sports reported that Pedulla will take a visit on Thursday at Alabama, just over two weeks after the Crimson Tide lost to Connecticut in the Final Four in the semifinals.

Like a lot of schools this offseason, Alabama head coach Nate Oates has seen a number of players leave and Pedulla is someone who could come in and fill a need he has for the 2024-25 season at guard. The Crimson Tide likes to get up-and-down the floor and he can shoot the ball from behind the arc, which fits right into Alabama's offense.

Last season for Virginia Tech, Pedulla averaged 16 points a game along with four rebounds and assists. When he announced that he was entering the transfer portal last month, he left the door open for a return to Blacksburg, but with his recent visit to Oklahoma and now Alabama, it seems less likely with each passing day that he returns for his final season of eligibility.
