Recruiting in the Class of 2025 has been off to a good start for the Virginia Tech football team and head coach Brent Pry. Saturday night, the Hokies once again hit it big in recruiting and hit it big recruiting in the state of Virginia.

Four-star linebacker Brett Clatterbaugh announced on his X account that he has committed to Virginia Tech with an "I'm home,'' in his message. He is the fifth recruit in the class to commit and the fourth from the Commonwealth.

According to 247Sports, Clatterbaugh is the 12th-ranked player in Virginia and he is the 311th overall prospect in the country. The Culpeper Eastern View LB chose the Hokies over Clemson, Penn State, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Maryland, and several others.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Clatterbaugh has been a priority in recruiting for Pry and his staff and the second-year head coach reacted to the commitment on his X account Saturday night. You can watch some of his videos here.

Clatterbaugh joines quarterback Kedlen Ryan from Texas, wide receiver Jayden Anderson from Virginia Beach, offensive lineman Carter Stallard from Christianburg and cornerback Knahlij Harrell also from Virginia Beach as commitments to the Hokies for the Class of 2025. Pry said when he got the job that recruiting within Virginia was going to be a focal point and so far, he's proven that the connections are being formed again and Virginia Tech truly is "Home" for the in-state recruits.
