Another day, another Virginia Tech verbal

More good recruiting news for Virginia Tech - The All Star Girls Report says that Alex Kiss-Rusk, a 6-4 center from Canada with significant international playing experience, has become the third player to verballycommit to the Hokies.

Kiss-Rusk, who currently attends academically prestigious Phillips Academy in Massachusetts, represented Canada at the 2010 U17 World Championships and last month had a stint with Team Canada at the Pan American Games in Mexico.

A couple more details:

  - Up until a couple of years ago, Kiss-Rusk's main sport was ice hockey.

  - She's probably still only the second-best basketball player in the family. Her mother, Annette Kiss, was such good she might have made Canada's Olympic team had that nation not boycotted the 1980 Games.

These stories - herehere and here - will help you get to know Kiss-Rusk a little better.

Earlier this week, Alexis Lloyd of Whitney Young High in Chicago announced plans to sign with Tech. And a couple of weeks ago, Arizona guard Lauren Evans became the first to pledge allegiance to the Hokies for the class of 2012. Players can ink binding letters-of-intent when the early signing period begins Wednesday and continues through Nov. 16.
