Marshall Wood Will Ask for His Release from Virginia Tech

Reporter: Justin Feldkamp

Rustburg High School basketball standout Marshall Wood will ask for a release from his national letter on intent with Virginia Tech.Rustburg coach Brantley Shields and he says Wood will ask for that release within the next couple of days.

There's a chance Tech could deny that request but he doesn't expect that to happen based on Seth Greenberg's firing.

Before committing to Tech, Wood's final five choices were Tech, UVa, Michigan, VCU and Richmond. Those choices will now expand and Shields has already taken calls from college coaches asking about Wood.

The ABC 13 Full Court Press Player of the Year could stay with Tech, depending on which coach they hire.

Montrezl Harrell, another Tech recruit, will "probably" ask for his release as well, according to Harrell's father.
