Since leaving Virginia Tech for Texas A&M, Buzz Williams has had an average record. His first season was 16-14 while his Covid season was 8-10, leaving him at 24-24 overall.
This year though he has picked up several transfers, notably former Blue Devil Henry Coleman, but also Wyoming guard Marcus Williams, as well as important frontcourt pieces in 6-11 UConn transfer Javonte Brown-Ferguson, 6-8 Arkansas transfer Ethan Henderson, and 6-6 Jalen Johnson from Mississippi State.
Now though he has a potential game changer, if you will, who comes from his last coaching stop: Virginia Tech’s Tyrece Radford.
Just 6-1, Radford is a terrific rebounder and defender. Unfortunately for Radford and the Hokies, he got in some serious legal trouble with weapons charges and a DWI this past season.
Virginia Tech coach Mike Young stood by him and welcomed him back but Radford opted to leave anyway.
He’s an unusual talent and we’re sure Williams will know what to do with him.
