Hunter Cattoor signs with Cleveland Cavaliers fo Summer League

Hunter Cattoor's career at Virginia Tech came to an end in March when the Hokies were eliminated in the second round of the NIT at Ohio State. He finished as the school's all-time leader in 3-pointers and was one of Mike Young's favorite players that the veteran had the pleasure to coach. Now, he'll get a chance to land in the NBA beginning with the NBA's Summer League next week.

Cattoor agreed to a Summer League contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers and will play his first game on July 12 in Las Vegas against the Orlando Magic, then will play the Milwaukee Bucks (July 14), the Golden State Warriors (July 17), and the Los Angeles Lakers (July 18).

Malik Washington announces commitment

The month of June was been a tremendous month for Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry with several commitments, mostly from the state of Virginia, and the Hokies were a finalist for a four-star quarterback from Maryland who announced his commitment.

Malik Washington, who took a visit to Virginia Tech in April during the Hokies annual Spring Game, announced that he will attend the University of Maryland. This should not come as a surprise to anyone as the Terrapins have always been seen as the favorite to land the Archbishop Spaulding signal caller. Virginia Tech, Central Florida, and Syracuse were the finalists with Maryland for the talented QB.
