Tyrece Radford transfers to Texas A&M
Following an extended stint in the transfer portal, Virginia Tech guard Tyrece Radford has announced he will be finishing his college basketball career at Texas A&M.
Radford will be reunited in College Station with former Hokies head coach, Buzz Williams. Coming off a season averaging 12.2 points and 5.9 rebounds, Radford’s addition will be a huge boost to the rebuilding Aggies program.
Radford leaves behind an interesting legacy in Blacksburg. While on the court, Radford was an integral part of the early success in the Mike Young era. He played with a very high motor and always made an impact. Unfortunately, trouble found Tyrece off the court. In January, Radford was charged with a DUI and possession of a firearm, and the aftermath of these legal issues certainly played a role in his decision to leave the Hokies.
While the loss of Tyrece Radford is certainly a significant one, the Hokies have positioned themselves well to absorb this type of personnel blow. Former 4 star guard Darius Maddox is poised to make an impact in his sophomore campaign, and the loss of Radford gives Maddox a clear path to significant minutes in 2021.
