Tomorrow evening, tune into Virginia Sports social media for a Virtual Meet the Team night featuring the men’s basketball team!
Fans who have followed the team’s recruiting have been hearing about a few of these guys for years at this point - Carson McCorkle committed to the Hoos in September of 2018! But, if you need a refresher on who we’ll get to meet tomorrow: Jabri Abdur-Rahim, Reece Beekman, Carson McCorkle, and Malachi Poindexter are incoming first years who made up 247Sports’ 18th best ranked recruiting class for their year. Joining them is incoming transfer Trey Murphy who average 13 points and 5 rebounds a game last season for the Rice Owls.
Tomorrow night is a great chance to get a first impression of these new Hoos and what they’ll be bringing to the team. Stay tuned to STL for roster breakdowns, deeper dives into the new class’ biographies, and who might crack the rotation this season for the Hoos.
