Hokies add two guards to recruiting class

BLACKSBURG, Va. — Virginia Tech head coach James Johnson has announced the signing of two players to National Letters of Intent for the 2013-14 academic year.

Malik Mueller, a guard from Ehingen, Germany and  Devin Wilson, a guard from McKees Rock, Pa., have signed to play for the Hokies beginning in Fall 2013.  

The 6-foot-3 Mueller was the Most Valuable Player at the 2010 Jordan Brand Classic International game in Madison Square Garden, scoring 21 points. Mueller was also named the MVP of the Arby’s Classic in Bristol, Tenn., in December, 2012, where he led his Urspring High School team to the title.

Mueller averaged 8.9 points per game as a senior on a team that played an international schedule.

The 6-foot-4 Wilson is a senior at Montour High School, where he earned first team All-State by the Associated Press. Wilson was Player of the Year on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s All-Western Pennsylvania team and was named the Pittsburgh Area Player of the Year by the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. Wilson led Montour to the WPIAL AAA title.  He averaged 17.0 points per game as a senior. Wilson is a two-sport standout at Montour. He is also considered to be a top football recruit, receiving offers from numerous Division I schools. He played in a combined five WPIAL championship games in both football and basketball.

Wilson and Mueller join guards Donte Clark (6-4, Charlotte, N.C.) and Ben Emelogu (6-5, Grand Prairie, Texas) and posts Maurice Kirby (6-9, Chandler, Ariz.) and Trevor Thompson (6-11, Indianapolis) in the class of players entering Virginia Tech in the fall of 2013.

Redshirt sophomore Adam Smith (6-1) will also become eligible this fall, after sitting out last season at Virginia Tech following his transfer from UNC Wilmington.
