There continues to be a lot of teams going after Class of 2025 quarterback Malik Washington from Severn, Maryland, and Archbishop Spaulding High School. The four-star signal-caller has over 20 offers according to 247Sports and one of those schools is Virginia Tech.
According to another site, the Hokies are one of "three standouts'' for the two-sport talent.

Recently, Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry and his staff have been hitting it big with recruiting. They have started to get commitments for the Class of 2025 and according to Adam Gorney of Rivals.com, the Hokies are one of "three standout'' teams for another four-star quarterback, this time Washington. Here is what he wrote,
"Penn State, Maryland and Virginia Tech are the three early standouts for Washington and it’s still in the opening stages since the Severn (Md.) Archbishop Spalding four-star hasn’t taken many visits or thrown for coaches. After he’s done focusing on hoops, recruiting should take first priority and while his top teams might not change, many more could come in."- Adam Gorney
Washington made a visit to Blacksburg last September for the season-opener against Old Dominion. According to On3 Industry Ranking, he's the 22nd ranked QB in the Class of 2025 and the 6-foot-4, 200-pounder is currently in the middle of his high school basketball season.
Currently, Virginia Tech has a commitment from Kelden Ryan from Texas, a three-star quarterback, in the Class of 2025 as they are starting to get commitments in the future class. This season's class has Davi Belfort of Florida but despite a commitment from Ryan, Washington should still be seen as a priority for the current junior class in high school. Once his basketball season is over, expect his recruiting to pick up in football.
