Virginia Tech Transfer Eyes Alabama

This could turn out to be nothing, but Virginia Tech transfer Dorian Finney-Smith has listed Alabama among the seven schools that he is considering. Finney-Smith, a 6'8 192 lb forward, was a five-star prospect coming out of high school and was one of the highest-rated prospects the Hokies program had ever signed. He produced solid numbers (6.3 pts, 7.0 reb, 1.9 assts) in his freshmen season, but with the termination of Seth Greenberg, has decided to seek greener pastures. He will have to sit a year per NCAA transfer rules, but could be yet another great addition to the 2013 class. 

The other schools in the mix are Florida, Marquette, Georgetown (surprise!), Iowa State, Villanova and Texas. Florida appears to have the early inside track as Finney-Smith was heavily recruited by the Gators coming out of high school.

No news on the Devonta Pollard front. Obviously his recruitment is going to continue past today's late-signing deadline.

Pollard is going to shock everyone and sign with Alcorn State or Tougaloo.
