One month after committing to Virginia Tech, Jordan Ivy-Curry has decided to re-open his recruitment. Following a second-round NIT loss to Ohio State, the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team saw several players leave through the transfer portal, including Sean Pedulla (to Mississippi), Tyler Nickel and MJ Collins (to Vanderbilt), and Lynn Kidd (to Miami). Mylyjael Poteat also entered the portal but decided to return for the 2024-25 season.

Coach Mike Young and his staff have been actively securing commitments from new players since the portal opened, but on Monday, one of those players, UTSA transfer Jordan Ivy-Curry, announced he is de-committing from the Hokies.

Ivy-Curry was among the first to commit to Young and Virginia Tech. Last season with the Roadrunners, he averaged 17.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game, shooting 39% from three-point range. The 6-foot-3 guard had a turbulent experience in Blacksburg. On April 14, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported that Ivy-Curry had declared for the 2024 NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility. Just 15 days later, he decided to de-commit from Virginia Tech and re-open his recruitment.

With Ivy-Curry’s departure, Young now has another roster spot to fill. He still holds commitments from Hysier Miller (Houston), Rodney Brown (California), and Ben Burnham (College of Charleston). Young and his staff will continue working to assemble a competitive roster for the 2024-25 ACC season.
