Georgia Tech offered on Feb. 7, but Jackets assistant Buzz Preston has been recruiting Vimahi for some time.
"I've had a relationship with (Preston) since I was a freshman," Vimahi said in an exchange o

As the St. Francis Saints celebrated after a thrilling 47-43 win over Hawaii Baptist to win the ILH Division II girls basketball title on Jan. 20, Neves was a spectator.
