Wabissa Bede '17 Commits to Virginia Tech

Congratulations to Wabissa Bede ’17 on making his verbal commitment today to play basketball at Virginia Tech! Surrounded by family, friends, teammates, and other members of the Cushing community, Wabissa announced his decision by choosing a card with the VT logo from a row of similar cards, each representing one of his final five contenders: Virginia Tech, Butler, UMass, La Salle, and Minnesota. He then unzipped his sweatshirt to reveal a Virginia Tech Basketball t-shirt and pulled a Hokies hat from his backpack as the group cheered him on.

The four-star point guard is listed as the No.16 point guard prospect nationally in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, and the No. 72 overall player in the country.

We’re looking forward to a great basketball season at Cushing in our new Watkins Field House and we’ll be rooting for this Penguin as he moves on to Hokie Nation!
