ESPN REPORT: Hokies Coach and technique crew all smile as 5 star player commit to Hokies

Christian Gurdak, a strong four-star Class of 2025 prospect, has joined Virginia Tech’s basketball program.
Christian Gurdak, a four-star center, has committed to Mike Young’s Class of 2025 program.
Monday night, Virginia Tech men’s basketball coach Mike Young was waiting for a four-star small forward to make his decision. In the end, Jaylen Harrell of CATS Academy in Braintree, Massachusetts, chose to stay in New England and commit to Kim English and Providence.

On Tuesday afternoon, a four-star prospect for the Hokies announced his decision, and this time it worked in Young’s favor when athletic big Christian Gurdak committed to Virginia Tech in the Class of 2025.

Christian Gurdak is Virginia Tech’s second Class of 2025 commit.
Last month, Gurdak paid an official visit to Blacksburg before traveling to South Bend, Indiana, to visit Notre Dame. In the end, the 6-foot-9 center, who will begin his senior year at Gonzaga High School (DC), chose Virginia Tech over the Irish, Maryland, Iowa, Clemson, and others.
He is ranked 98th by 247Sports and fourth in D.C. He is Young’s second Top 100 recruit in as many seasons, following current incoming freshman Ryan Jones, who chose the Hokies over his native Florida Gators.

Gurdak is Virginia Tech’s second Class of 2025 recruit, following Sin’Cere Jones of Portsmouth, Va., who committed last month. Young now has a center and a power forward committed in the class, which is a great start. The coaching staff can now focus their recruiting efforts in the class on wings and guards as they prepare a team for the future. Gurdak was originally recruited by Virginia Tech when he was 14 years old, so he has been on their radar for a while and has been a top priority in his class.
