Maurice Kirby commits to Virginia Tech

Posted by on October 11, 2012 – 5:44 pm

Basha forward Maurice Kirby announced on Twitter that he verbally committed to Virginia Tech to play basketball next fall.

Kirby visited the campus this week. The 6-foot-9, 215-pound senior had originally committed to Arizona State when he was at Poston Butte High School as a sophomore, but when he transferred to Basha before his junior year, he re-0pened his recruiting.

He averaged eight point, eight rebounds, two assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per game for Basha as a junior last season.

The senior forward was part of a three-headed attack at Basha with Torren Jones and Jaron Hopkins, but when coach Brad Pinter resigned after the 2011-2012 season, Jones and Hopkins eventually left the school while Kirby is still at Basha and will play for new coach John Burns this winter.
