Wednesday afternoon, three members of the Virginia Tech Class of 2024 football recruiting class that signed two weeks ago will be in Orlando, Florida for the Under Armour All-American Game. Wide receiver Chanz Wiggins, quarterback Davi Belfort, and defensive lineman Emmett Laws will suit up for Team Ice against Team Fire at Camping World Stadium this afternoon at 4 o'clock on ESPN.

Belfort will not play in the game as he posted last week on X that he was going to sit it out to be ready for spring ball in Blacksburg.

"Unfortunately I won’t be able to play in the UA game this week because I am still recovering from an injury this past season. As much as I would love to be playing my priority is to be 100% for spring ball in college. Beyond grateful to have being selected a UA all American.''

Wiggins, who recently spent time with Virginia Tech ahead of the Military Bowl in Annapolis, Maryland on Dec. 27 against Tulane that the Hokies won, 41-20, practicing with them, is certainly a dynamic player and someone to watch in this game. He should come in next year to a wide receiver room that is deep and still makes a contribution on the field.

"Number one, he's mature enough to handle and it's good exposure for him,'' head coach Brent Pry said when Wiggins was practicing before the bowl game. "He's getting to know the guys in practice, he's around them, he's getting into the drills, watching his movements, his ball skills, he's everything we'd hoped he be. He had to have all of his work completed at the high school and there could be anything hanging out there for him to do this. His mom has been bringing him up and he eats with us, and goes through all the meetings.''

Laws is one of the interesting recruits as the four-star defensive lineman has a strong career at DeMatha Catholic in Maryland and is a highly regarded lineman with a bright future in Blacksburg. All three recruits have a bright upside and Hokies fans should be excited to what they can bring to the program very soon.
