Virginia Tech picked up a commitment from guard Jalen Hudson on Friday night as the Ohio native announced his decision on Twitter to join the Hokies’ 2014 class.

The 6’5″ Hudson comes from St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio — you might know their most famous alum as the best basketball player in the world, LeBron James — and is regarded as a three-star prospect according to Rivals.

Virginia Tech head coach James Johnson has made perimeter threats a priority in the 2014 class and Hudson picked the Hokies over strong interest from Arkansas.

Hudson, who played on the AAU circuit with Team Loaded, joins shooting guard Justin Bibbs and shooting wing T.J. Lang as commitments in Virginia Tech’s 2014 class.
