Things could be getting rather interesting between Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech on the football field. The Hokies will kick off the 2024 season on Labor Day Weekend against the Commodores in Tennessee. Before that, Tech head coach Brent Pry will be hosting a Vanderbilt commit next month.

June will be a very busy month in Blacksburg for Pry and his staff, hosting several recruits in the Class of 2025 and even some that could be considered a priority. Near the top of that list is Carson Lawrence, who Virginia Tech will try and get him to flip his commitment.

Virginia Tech to host four-star Carson Lawrence

Lawrence, a four-star safety at McAullie School in Tennessee, announced on his X page that he has a visit locked in with Virginia Tech from June 21-23. He has someone who has been on the Hokies' radar despite committing to Vanderbilt early in June of 2023.

Currently, Lawrence is rising in the Class of 2025 rankings and it would not be surprising to see him flip his commitment at some point. Virginia Tech has always produced very good players in the secondary who go onto the next level.

Class of 2025 recruiting will pick up Pry over the next month-plus with another safety, five-star Faheem Delane, and younger brother of current Hokie Mansoor, who had a visit and still has visits coming up at some of the top programs in the country. 

Currently, Virginia Tech’s Class of 2025 has quarterback Kelden Ryan from Texas, offensive lineman Carter Stallard from Virginia, wide receiver Jayden Anderson from Virginia Beach, Knahlij also from Virginia Beach, and linebacker Brent Clatterbaugh from Virginia.
