    Khadim Sy has committed to Virginia Tech.

    The 6-foot-10, 245-pound three-star power forward from Oak Hill Academy (VA) chose the Hokies over Wake Forest, Purdue, Kansas State, and Georgia Tech, all of which he visited. He was scheduled to visit Miami this coming weekend.

    “I think I will be a good fit for them and that I will fit in there,” Sy told Hoop Seen’s Corey Evans. “They have good coaches, good academics, and can make me a better player,”

    Sy is the first commit for the Hokies in the class of 2016. He will fit in well in the front court alongside Kerry Blackshear.

    “He’s about 6-10, he plays four and five, he’s more of a four to me than a five but you can play him at both spots,” Oak Hill coach Steve Smith told SNY.tv. “He weighs about 245 pounds. Now he’s looked upon as a player that can come in and help fairly quickly and he’s got the body to compete.

    “He’s got a great attitude. I really like his work ethic and what he brings to the table.”
