It’s been just over a month since the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team went through a mass exodus out of Blacksburg following a second-round NIT loss at the hands of Ohio State. Gone in the transfer portal are Sean Pedulla (Mississippi), Tyler Nickel and MJ Collins (Vanderbilt), and Lynn Kidd (Miami), while Mylyjael Poteat entered the portal but withdrew and is coming back for the 2024-25 season.

Virginia Tech coach Mike Young has been very busy along with his staff since the portal opened getting some commitments from various players, but one of those players who committed announced on Monday that he has had a change of heart and is de-committing from the Hokies.

UTSA transfer Jordan Ivy-Curry decommits from Virginia Tech

One of the first players to commit to Young and Virginia Tech was UTSA transfer Jordan Ivy-Curry, who announced he is re-opening his recruiting Monday morning. Last season for the Roadrunners, he averaged 17.1 points a game, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists while shooting 39% from behind the 3-point line.

The 6-foot-3 guard had a shaky and odd time in Blacksburg since committing. On April 14, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported that Ivy-Curry declared for the 2024 NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility. Then 15 days later, he decommits from Virginia Tech and will re-open his recruiting.

Where he ends up remains to be seen, but now Young has another roster spot open that he’ll need to fill. He currently still has commitments from Hysier Miller of Houston, Rodney Brown of California, and Ben Burnham from the College of Charleston. It’s back to work for Young and his staff who are trying to put together a roster for the 2024-25 season that will compete in the ACC on a nightly basis.
