All it took was an official visit to Virginia Tech for Malcolm Delaney to end his recruitment. The Baltimore native verbally committed to the Hokies during an official visit to Blacksburg this weekend.
Delaney, the No. 89 ranked player in the class of 2007, said he liked the impression Seth Greenberg made on him early in the recruiting process.
"Last month, coach Greenberg said he wanted to take over my recruitment and that meant a lot," Delaney said. "All of the other schools sent their assistants and I liked them but I talked to coach Greenburg everyday. I liked dealing with the head coach because he'll be the guy with the minutes. I'm going to bond with him more than anybody.
"More than anything, (Greenberg) did a great job with my family. He was the only school to talk to my mother. That meant a lot. Plus, it's close to my home so my family can come out and see me."
Delaney raved about the thought of playing in Virginia Tech's system and playing alongside freshman point guard Nigel Munson.
"I've seen how they use a guard oriented system with three guards and they are losing 90 minutes in the backcourt. They only have one guard coming in. And I like playing with him."
