Jordan Ivy-Curry was one of the first transfer portal commitments to Virginia Tech men’s basketball coach Mike Young. One month after committing, the former UTSA guard de-committed from the Hokies last week to re-open his recruiting. 

After over a week of being back in the transfer portal, Ivy-Curry committed Wednesday night to a Big 12 Conference school for the 2024-25 season.

Jordan Ivy-Curry commits to Central Florida

Ivy-Curry announced on his X account Wednesday night that he has committed to Central Florida to join the Knights who are coming off a 17-16 2023-24 season and a first-round loss in the NIT to South Florida.

Last season for the Roadrunners, Ivy-Curry averaged 17.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists a night and shot 40.% from the field. An athletic ballhandler who can shoot the 3-ball well, despite losing his commitment, Young still has had a good transfer portal up until this point.

He has added College of Charleston’s Ben Burnham, Temple’s Hysier Miller, California’s Rodney Brown, Toibu Lawal of VCU, and even got a commitment from Class of 2024 four-star guard Ben Hammond.

Of all the additions, Hammond is the most interesting one. He has the ability to create his own shot, get to the basket, and could end up being a better player for Virginia Tech than Ivy-Curry. If there is one takeaway from Young’s offseason, it’s that he’s going to have a much more athletic roster than he had in 2023-24.

Virginia Tech has reached four 4-star Oklahoma transfer

Young still has a couple of roster spots to fill and another player that the coaching staff has reached out to is four-star Oklahoma transfer Kaden Cooper. The 6-foot-5 guard is one of the more athletic guards remaining in the portal and would the Hokies another eclectic player that could make a major impact on both ends of the floor.
