This morning, Stadium’s Jeff Goodman announced that Landers Nolley II will opt to transfer and will have three years of eligibility remaining. The Hokies’ leading scorer was excellent as a redshirt freshmen averaging 15.3 points in his first season. Brought in as a Buzz Williams recruit, Nolley II opted to remain in Blacksburg under Mike Young and his staff.
Prior to his commitment to the Hokies, Nolley II committed to his hometown program of the Georgia Bulldogs before flipping to the Hokies. This afternoon, he heard from over 15+ programs and told Stockrisers.com about each one.
Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Miss St., Alabama, Wichita State, Florida, Minnesota, started off the calls to Nolley II. In addition, he told Stockrisers.com that TCU, Maryland, Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, and Georgetown joined the list.
Within an hour later, two more intriguing programs reached out: Auburn and UConn, both called Nolley II.
UPDATE – – 6:58 P.M ET:
Arizona State and USC are the latest programs to reach out to Nolley II, he told Stockrisers.com. I expect the list to continue to grow over the next few days with no rush to shut things down.
UPDATE – – 8:58 P.M ET:
Louisville and Dayton both have reached out to Nolley II. The Cardinals will now have an open scholarship due to the departure of now graduate transfer Darius Perry.
