On Tuesday, center Lynn Kidd and forward John Camden were the first two Virginia Tech men’s basketball players from this year's team to enter the transfer portal and Wednesday, a third Hokie entered, and it’s a key piece that head coach Mike Young could ill-afford to lose.

Point guard Sean Pedulla announced on X that he is entering the transfer portal while “strongly considering” a return to Virginia Tech for his final season of eligibility. This season Pedulla averaged 16.4 points a game, 4.6 assists per game, and 4.3 rebounds per game. The Edmond Oklahoma native had to take on a big role as the primary ball handler for Young after Rodney Rice announced in October right before the season started that he was leaving the program. He eventually entered the transfer portal and recently committed to the University of Maryland.

In three seasons in Blacksburg, Pedulla played in 102 games and was a backup in 2021-22 and a key contributor to Virginia Tech running the table in the ACC Tournament to win it and secure an automatic NCAA Tournament berth. He was the primary ball handler the last two seasons for the Hokies and if he does indeed leave, it leaves a huge opening with his backcourt mate Hunter Catoor graduating this season.

Pedulla struggled this season with turnovers, but Young stuck by his point guard and he got better as the season went along. He was very good over the last month getting downhill towards the basket and shooting the ball from the outside. Again, he posted on X that he will “strongly consider” returning to Virginia Tech, however, you have to think there will be a lot of suitors for him for 2024-25 and it would be surprising if he did return to Blacksburg.
