Reigning Virginia prep player of the year to play basketball for Hokies

Virginia Tech men's basketball coach Seth Greenberg got some good news earlier today when Dorian Finney-Smith of Norcom High in Portsmouth, Va., announced he would become the fourth member of the Hokies' 2011 recruiting class during a press conference in his home town.

Finney-Smith, a versatile 6-foot-7 forward, is the reigning Virginia AAA player of the year after leading Norcom to a state championship as a junior. He averaged 19.7 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks. Finney-Smith chose Virginia Tech over Florida and Old Dominion, where his older brother Ben is the Monarchs' No. 2 returning starter.

He was a member of Boo Williams' AAU program in the Hampton Roads area, which has produced players such as Allen Iverson, John Gilchrist, and Eric Hayes in the past. Finney-Smith is rated as the No. 15 prospect in the country by ESPN. He joins forward C.J. Barksdale and guards Robert Brown and Marquis Rankin in the Hokies 2011 recruiting class.

That's great news.

It will be interesting to see how well this team comes together.

Greenberg's a great coach, and it seems that he'll have some great players next year.
