Recently, the Virginia Tech football Class of 2025 recruiting class was ranked 46th by 247Sports. Currently, the Hokies have five commitments in the class with four coming from the state of Virginia and one from Texas. It’s clear that head coach Brent Pry and his staff have work to do with making additions to the class and they certainly have many targets.

One of those targets released his Top 10 list and Virginia Tech made the cut along with some of the country’s other top programs.

Virginia Tech Top 10 finalist for Cortez Harris

According to his X page, Cortez Harris, a four-star edge from Maryland, recently released his final 10 schools, and the Hokies made the cut along with nine other schools. Joining Virginia Tech on the list are Syracuse, Penn State, Tennessee, Michigan, Michigan State, Florida, South Carolina, Texas A&M, and Maryland.

According to On3’s recruiting prediction machine, Penn State is the favorite followed by Maryland and Virginia Tech.

The Upper Marlboro, Maryland native plays at Riverdale Baptist High School and is one of the top edges in the Class of 2025. Currently, the Hokies have four-star linebacker Brett Clatterbaugh and three-star cornerback Knahlij Harris committed on the defensive side of the ball in that class. Of course, five-star safety Faheem Delane, younger brother of current Hokie Mansoor has yet to commit to that class, and his offers are from some of the top programs in the country.

Offensively, Virginia Tech has commitments from three-star offensive lineman Carter Stallard, three-star wide receiver Jayden Anderson, and three-star quarterback Kelden Ryan, from DeSoto, Texas in the Class of 2025.

In June, Virginia Tech is scheduled to host several recruits, and don’t be surprised if there are some announcements shortly after they visit Blacksburg. There is still work to be done for Pry and his staff.
