One area that the Virginia Tech football team is looking to make a splash in recruiting is the secondary for defensive coordinator Chris Marve. Next season, Mansoor Delane and Dorian Strong are coming back for 2024, but they need to add reinforcements for the following year.

One recruit that the Hokies have been in on is Tarrion Grant from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and the talented cornerback and wide receiver narrowed his list down to the final five schools and Virginia Tech made the list. Joining the Hokies are LSU, Louisville, Purdue, and Oregon. He is scheduled to make his decision this Sunday.

Virginia Tech offered him almost a year ago and he also had offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Miami, and Arkansas to name a few.

According to 247Sports, he's the 6-foot-3, 175-pound Grant is the 42nd-ranked recruit and seventh-ranked cornerback in the Class of 2025. One area that the Hokies are going to good at next season is on defense and the secondary will be strong, but getting a four-star recruit as talented as Grant would be a huge addition for 2025.

Grant did not take an official visit to Virginia Tech this season which is not a good sign for the Hokies and they have some stiff competition with some of the top programs in the country.
