Andre Gordon, who had signed with then-Virginia Tech men’s basketball coach Buzz Williams last fall, announced on Twitter on Saturday night that he has decided to commit to Williams’ new team — Texas A&M.
The news was a surprise because Gordon had never announced that he had asked Tech for a release from his letter-of-intent. But he was indeed given his release, according to a Tech source.
Gordon, a senior at Sidney (Ohio) High School, is rated the No. 37 point guard in the nation and the No. 5 recruit in Ohio by ESPN.
Yavuz Gultekin, another one of Tech’s four fall signees, also tweeted Saturday night that he had committed to Texas A&M. Gultekin had announced Thursday that he had decided to look for a new college.
Anthony Harris, a fall signee who received his release April 4, has not yet picked a new school. He had tweeted that he would still consider Tech.
•Christian Webster has been retained as an assistant coach by new Hokies men’s basketball coach Mike Young, according to a Tech source. Webster served as one of Williams’ assistant coaches at Tech the past three seasons.
