Women's basketball adds Blaire, Camp and Croker

BLACKSBURG, Va. – Virginia Tech Head Coach Dennis Wolff has announced the signing of Brielle Blaire, Rachel Camp and Khadedra Croker to national letters of intent for the 2014-15 academic year.

“As a group these are talented additions to our roster,” Wolff said. “I would like to commend Coach Shelby, Coach Joyce and Coach Woods for all the effort they put in to the recruitment of these ladies.”

Blaire, a 6-2 forward out of North Rowan High School, has been rated a four-star recruit by ESPN HoopGurlz and is ranked 72nd overall and 17th in the forward position. The Salisbury, N.C. native attended Salisbury High School her first three varsity seasons where she earned All-State honors as a freshman and was named the MVP of the state championship. In 2012 and 2013, Blaire earned NCPreps 2A All-State honors. Blaire averaged 14.7 points and 9.9 rebounds for her career at Salisbury and was the Rowan County leading scorer two years in a row.

“Brielle is a multi-talented forward who is extremely skilled for her size,” Wolff stated. “She should help off-set the departure of Monet Tellier.”

Camp, a 5-11 guard from Forest City, N.C., is an All-Conference honoree and was named Player of the Year following her junior campaign. While playing for East Rutherford High School, Camp earned NCPreps 2A All-State honors in 2012 and 2013. Camp has averaged 28.4 points per game during her career and reached the 2,000 point milestone during her junior season.

“Rachel is a skilled guard capable of playing on or off the ball,” said Wolff.

Croker, a 6-2 center/power forward, from Suffolk, Va., attended King Fork High School where she has earned First Team All-District honors for three years and helped her team to the Southeastern District title. As a junior, Croker averaged 15.1 points, 13.5 rebounds and six blocks per game and surpassed the 1,000 career point mark, earning District Player of the Year honors. Croker has been tabbed a three-star recruit by ESPN HoopGurlz.

“Khadedra is an extremely active post player,” Wolff said. “She should immediately bolster our rebounding efforts when she arrives at Virginia Tech.”

Blaire, Camp and Croker will join the Hokies in the Fall 2014.
