It has been three years since the last Virginia Tech Hokie was drafted into the N.B.A.. Guard Eric Green was taken in the second round in 2013, and before that you had to go back to 2008 and find Deron Washington. If you want to go back to find a first round Hokie, it would be none other than Dell Curry in 1986. 30 years is a long time between first round draft picks for a basketball program, and Buzz Williams might be bucking that trend. The Hokies have been recruiting hardcore as of late, and odds are one of the kids will be playing in the league in the future. Forward Zach LeDay just might be the guy for the Hokies. He is 6'7", and has a knack for finding the rim.
