Tony Bennett is on the search for potential new class of 2021 guard targets.
He and assistant Orlando Vandross were spotted tonight in Evansville, Indiana watching point guard Khristian Lander. You might remember his name from last summer when Tony was in the stands for several of his AAU games. Louisville, Indiana, and Michigan are all heavily involved with Lander, who some consider the best point guard in the class.
I’ve also learned Tony was in West Chester, Pennsylvania this afternoon where he attended practice at the Westtown School. The probable player of interest there is guard Jalen Warley. He’s been one of the biggest stock risers of the high school season. Pitt, Seton Hall, Oregon, and Georgetown among many others are vying for his services.
Neither of the prized guards have offers from Virginia…yet. it’s the 2nd time recently Coach Bennett has made such a trip to evaluate new recruits, after seeing Trey Kaufman and Stevie Mitchell just 10 days ago. This is by far the most recruiting activity we’ve ever seen from him during a season. Likely a reaction to the NCAA’s changes that have taken away valuable summer evaluation time.
Virginia currently has four scholarships available for 2021.
