In this edition of Virginia Tech Hokies News, baseball coach John Szefc picks up a commitment, a football quarterback recruit will make his decision this week, and more.

Baseball recruit Jake Wise commits to Hokies

All of the recruiting headlines in the Class of 2025 have been taken up by the Virginia Tech football and women's basketball teams and rightfully so, but baseball coach John Szefc picked up a Class of 2025 recruit in right-handed pitcher Jake Wise. The Glen Allen, Va. native was a co-pitcher of the year this spring.

Malik Washington to make football commitment

Sunday afternoon, Hokies football coach Brent Pry picked up his second Class of 2025 quarterback commitment when AJ Brand committed. He picked Virginia Tech over South Carolina and another signal caller in that class will make his decision on Friday at 1 o'clock.

All signs are pointing to Washington committing to Maryland, his home state, but the Archbishop Spalding QB has Central Florida, Syracuse, Virginia Tech, and Penn State as his top choices.

It's been over a month since the Virginia Tech softball team was eliminated from the Los Angeles Regional of the NCAA Tournament after going 1-2 with a win over San Diego State before losses to UCLA and Grand Canyon. It was the second loss of the season for the Hokies to Grand Canyon and now, they have lost an assistant coach to the Lopes.

She will be in charge of the outfielders next season for head coach Shanon Hays, who will be looking to rebuild their outfield after losing key pieces to graduation this season.
