Buzz Williams's roster will look a lot different than the Virginia Tech roster that James Johnson had last season. CJ Barksdale becomes the fifth player to leave the program since Williams was hired in March.
Forward C.J. Barksdale has informed the Virginia Tech men’s basketball program that he will not be a member of next season’s team, a person with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed.
At this point, the Hokies have just five scholarship players back from last season (guards Devin Wilson, Adam Smith, Malik Mueller and Will Johnston and forward Joey van Zegeren), only two of whom appeared in more than 15 games and averaged more than 3.2 points per game. Forwards Trevor Thompson (Ohio State), Marshall Wood (Richmond) and Maurice Kirby (Coffeyville Community College) and guard Ben Emelogu have also moved on from the program since the 2013-14 season ended.
So ... if you're in Blacksburg and want to play some basketball, contact the Hokies athletic department.
