Virginia Tech Gets No. 90 Sr Landers Nolley

ESPN No. 90 ranked high school senior Landers Nolley, who committed and decommitted from Georgia last week, is now headed to Virginia Tech.


“In this process I made a few mistakes that could have cost me everything [but] I have learned a lot,” Nolley said via Twitter. “That being said, I will [be] committing to the University of Virginia Tech.”


“Making this decision will help me grow into not only a better ball player, but a better man,” Nolley added.


The 6-7 small forward averaged 24.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.9 steals on 57 percent field goal shooting this season for Langston Hughes HS (Fairburn, GA), leading the team to the Georgia State Championship.


Nolley also had a strong AAU season, averaging 21.6 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists for Team Loaded at the Adidas Summer Championships in Las Vegas.


In addition, the swingman shot a team-leading 50 percent from three for Nike South Beach in the Nike EYBL.


The Bleacher Report’s Tim Daniels loves the sweet-shooting Nolley’s game.


“What makes the Langston Hughes High School star stand out is his scoring ability,” Daniels wrote. “He’s one of the best pure shooters in the class. He can get on red-hot streaks from the mid-range and beyond the arc to carry an offense on his back for extended stretches.”


Basketball Society Online’s Stephen Rodgers believes that Nolley is a versatile impact player.


“Jamie Shaw of Hoop Phenom Report [said] that his game and physical stature are eerily similar to [the Suns’] Devin Booker,” wrote Rodgers. “Landers is a guy who can score on all three levels with ease. He has the type of skill set to play either point guard, shooting guard, or small forward.”


The Hokies had beat out the likes of Illinois, Florida State, UConn, NC State, Georgia Tech, and Georgia State to land Nolley.


At Virginia Tech, Nolley will join fellow 2018 recruit No. 50 SF Jarren McAllister.
