Delaware Graduate Transfer, Justyn Mutts Commits to Virginia Tech.

Delaware graduate transfer Justyn Mutts has committed to Virginia Tech, he has two-seasons to go as a Graduate Transfer. I’ll be quite honest I am surprised Mutts chose VA Tech, I expected him to choose Houston but Virginia Tech is still a solid-landing-spot. He also had NC State in his final 3, I did an interview with Mutts when he entered the Portal. You don’t see two-year grad transfers all that often but Mutts put the work in order to graduate in 3 years after starting his career for Scott Cherry at High Point, he then headed to Delaware and sat out in 2018-19. He played this season now he’s a Hokie for the next 2 seasons. Mutts the Millville NJ Native had 12 points, 8.4 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game, he’s a do-it-all guy and a great player who will play a huge role for Mike Young’s team. Here’s an outlook of their roster for next season.

Lineup:

PG: Wabissa Bede

SG: Cartier Diarra (Kansas State)

SF: Tyrece Radford

PF: Cordell Pemsl (Iowa)

C: Justyn Mutts (Delaware)

Bench: Jalen Cone, Hunter Catoor, Naheim Alleyene, Joe Bamisile, Darius Maddox, David N’Guessan

Departures: Landers Nolley II (Memphis), Isaiah Wilkins (Wake Forest), Jonathan Kabongo (Retired), P.J. Horne (Georgia)

Additions: Cartier Diarra (Kansas State), Justyn Mutts (Delaware), Cordell Pemsl (Iowa), Joe Bamisile, Darius Maddox, David N’Guessan.

This team is quite interesting. They over-performed early last season, including a win over Michigan State in the Maui Jim in November. They then fell back down to earth and went 16-16 overall. Even though they lost Landers Nolley, despite averaging 15 points per game, he shot the ball an insane amount and shot 37% from the field, 31% from three, that’s not impressive. They also lose Isaiah Wilkins who didn’t do a whole lot only averaging 3 points per game. P.J Horne is transferring to Georgia, he had 7 points and 4 rebounds per game this season.

In addition to adding Mutts, Cartier Diarra is a good player who can kind of do-it-all he had 13 points and 3 assists per game, this past season is a 6’4″ guard who is great is super fast, although turnovers are a big issue though. Cordell Pemsl didn’t play a ton for Iowa but had 4 points and 3 rebounds per game, he should play a solid role for the Hokies and Mike Young this season.

They return Jalen Cone who is a 5’10” knock-down shooter who re-classified into the 2019 class, he shot 45% from three that’s pretty incredible and if Mike Young loves one thing it’s shooters who can score in bunches, and that’s exactly what Cone does. He will be a force in the ACC for years to come in the near future. Wabissa Bede is a pure-point-guard who averaged 5 points and 5 assists per game, he isn’t a scorer at all but can really run an offense well. Tyrece Radford is about 6’2″ but he plays much bigger, he’s a good defender and athletic had 10 points and 6 rebounds per game while shooting 60% from the field. Nahiem Alleyene is a great shooter perfect for Mike Young he had 8.8 points and 3 rebounds per game in his Freshman season while shooting 38% from deep. Hunter Catoor is also an elite shooter at 40% from three in his Freshman Season. Mike Young loves guys who can make the three-ball. That makes this team super dangerous team who could beat anyone in the ACC on any day, if everyone is clicking on all cylinders.
