Tony Bennett and his staff at the University of Virginia spent the summer scouring the country for additional wing firepower. Over the weekend, they hosted one of their primary targets in Georgia-bred wing Malcolm Brogdon. From the sounds of it, the visit went quite well for both parties.
According to several sources and his summer coach Norm Parker of the Georgia Stars, the 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Norcross (Ga.) Greater Atlanta Christian has given Bennett and his staff a verbal commitment.
"Yes, Malcolm decided to commit to Virginia," Parker told Rivals.com. "I think he really felt good about their coaching staff up there and it's a great school where he's got an opportunity to play."
Starring this summer with the Georgia Stars, Brogdon emerged as a high level scoring guard and is currently ranked No. 115 nationally in the class of 2011.
Brogdon has great range, can create off the dribble and because of his size he can be used as either a shooting guard or slide over and play the small forward. Perhaps his biggest strength, though, is a short memory that allows him to forget missed shots and always believe that the next one is going in.
