Isaiah Wilkins, a Mount Tabor graduate who played at Virginia Tech for the last two seasons, is moving closer to home.

Wilkins announced his commitment to join Wake Forest’s men’s basketball program on Thursday morning.

The 6-4, 225-pound wing averaged 4.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game last season for the Hokies. Wilkins entered the transfer portal in late March after a phone call with Coach Mike Young, in which Wilkins was encouraged to seek a better system for his talent.
