South Florida’s mass transferring of players after Stan Heath got fired after seven years with the program was surely going to result in some teams landing solid players. Well, one of those schools, the Virginia Tech Hokies, landed one of those kind players, Zach LeDay.

LeDay started half of South Florida’s games last year, averaging 3.5 points and 2.6 board per game as a sophomore.
Per NCAA transfer rules LeDay will have to sit the upcoming season, but will have two years of eligibility remaining.
While not a monstrous get for Buzz Williams, it is a solid one. It adds even more depth to a large class of players joining the Virginia Tech program under Williams’ leadership. Meaning maybe, just maybe, he can eventually make the basketball program something.
Zach LeDay is not the lone transfer to join the program. Along with some highly-regarded recruits, Williams landed former Maryland sophomore guard Seth Allen back in May. Like LeDay, though, he will also have to sit out the upcoming season, but will have two years of playing left too.
