Saturday marked the first day that the Class of 2026 could officially be contacted and have contact with college coaches and Virginia Tech coach Mike Young and his staff were busy. Sunday, the Hokies veteran coach got his first commitment in the Class of 2025.

In-state recruit, Sin'Cere Jones had a visit to Blacksburg last weekend and on Sunday, he officially committed to Young and Virginia Tech. The Portsmouth forward is 6-foot-7 and 195 pounds and is the 13th-ranked player in Virginia in his class.

Jones is a talented player who can put the ball on the floor to get to the basket and uses his length on the defensive end to frustrate opponents. He spoke to 247Sports about his visit to Virginia Tech and how the plan the coaching staff gave him made him feel like he could take his game to another level during his time with the Hokies.

"I loved the staff and campus. I loved how I was treated and I felt like one of the players already. The plan that they had for me was great and I can see my game making a huge jump with the program."

Jones held other offers from Norfolk State, Duquesne. Old Dominion, VCU and Mississippi State among some of his other options. This is a good start for Young in the Class of 2025 and the next couple of weeks and months are going to be big with other recruits making a decision.
