Basketball season is still a couple of months away (and at least three football losses from some of us starting to pay attention), but Texas A&M made some hoops news on Wednesday as they secured a commitment from Virginia Tech transfer guard Tyrece Radford.
Radford averaged double-digit scoring each of the past two seasons for the Hokies, and was projected to be a starter on their 2021-22 squad before entering the transfer portal this summer. He’ll be eligible immediately and has three years of eligibility remaining.
Radford is one of a slew of newcomers to the Texas A&M roster this season as head coach Buzz Williams looks to turnaround a program that has gone 12-14 in his first two seasons on the job (both of which were significantly impacted by COVID). Radford will join Javonte Brown-Ferguson, Aaron Cash, Henry Coleman, Ethan Henderson, Jalen Johnson, Manny Obaseki, Ashton Smith, Wade Taylor and Marcus Williams as new faces in Aggieland this season.
The Aggies also added another piece to their 2022 recruiting class this past weekend with three-star point guard Amaree Abram.
