6'10' Khadim Sy first popped onto the radar as a slender sophomore transfer playing at the famed Oak Hill Academy. This, of course, was two years ago when Sy first moved to the United States, from Senegal.

Then, Sy was 6'8' and weighed a scrawny 190 pounds. Now Sy is a commanding 6'10' and he tips the scales at a chiseled and athletic 240 pounds. On the day of Oak Hill's famed scrimmage with Hargrave, Sy decided to end his recruitment and commit to Head Coach Buzz Williams and the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Since Sy moved to the United States, from Senegal, he has gone to school at Oak Hill. He is familiar with the western part of Virginia, which is where both Oak Hill and Virginia Tech are located. Sy was somewhat under the radar, as he played his junior year behind Ohio State's Daniel Giddens (a top 50 recruit) and spend the majority of the summer battling injuries, and on the sidelines.

Sy ended up with a host of high major offers, and ended up taking four official visits. Purdue, Kansas St, and Georgia Tech went by first and Sy ended up committing to Virginia Tech on his official visit to Blacksburg.

Sy has participated in multiple Phenom Events:

2014 Phenom Hoops Challenge
Upward Stars Just Did Things A Bit Different

While most of the teams won with good guard play, Upward Stars 16s came out and dominated in the post. Led by 6'10 Oak Hill Sophomore Khadim Sy, and his 13 points, Upward Stars is full of lengthy bigs that can bang and run the floor. 6'8 Jordan Brunner, of Spring Valley HS, is a player to keep an eye on. He has a great feel in the high post showing both touch and ability to attack. 6'8 Ayi Armel Tete, of Northwood Temple, is a big, strong, and high ceiling kid who is figuring out his way in the post. 6'7 James Lewis, of East Gaston HS, has a nonstop motor and affects the pain both in and out of his zone.

6'9 senior Khadim Sy has been at Oak Hill for three years. He has always been a work in progress. We have often thrown around the term 'upside and potential' in describing Sy. Sy was outstanding against Huntington Prep. He had a game high 19 points including 7-9 from the free throw line. Sy worked hard in the paint working for low post position. He used his body extremely well in sealing the defender and has the ability to use either hand.

After taking in five (5) players in their 2015 class, Sy is Virginia Tech's first commitment in their 2016 class.
