Recruiting in the Class of 2025 is in full swing with commitments coming in over the last couple of weeks for Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry. This weekend is the last official visit weekend for the month of June and there are currently over a dozen recruits on campus in Blacksburg.

Currently, in the Class of 2025, the Hokies have one quarterback committed in DeSoto, Texas signal-caller Kelden Ryan, who is taking a visit this weekend, and Virginia Tech is the running for two others, Malik Washington and AJ Brand. Friday, 247Sports released their latest Crystal Ball Prediction for Brand and it is a very good sign for Pry and his staff.

Crystal Ball Prediction has AJ Brand landing with Virginia Tech

Days after a 247Sports Crystal Ball Prediction predicted that Christian Evans would land in Blacksburg, which he officially did Thursday, Brand's Crystal Ball Prediction also has him committing to Virginia Tech.

Washington is a coveted quarterback in the Class of 2025, but all indications are that he'll commit to Maryland, Syracuse, or Central Florida down the line, likely sometime after the Elite 11 Finals that he's wrapping up. As for Brand, he's been someone that the Hokies have been recruiting hard and making it known that they would like to get him.

He was in Blacksburg for a visit on June 7 and his final decision will likely come down to Virginia Tech and South Carolina. He is expected to complete his 7-on-7 schedule this summer before he makes a final decision on his college destination. Last season, he threw for just under 3,000 yards and 45 touchdowns while rushing for 1,113 yards and another 17 touchdowns for Irmo High School in South Carolina. Brand, who has a very similar skill set as current Hokies' QB Kyron Drones, spent a lot of his time during his visit earlier this month with the Baylor transfer.
