Recruiting has been very good for Virginia Tech football coach Brent Pry over the last month. Currently, in the Class of 2025, the Hokies have 14 commitments and 10 from the state of Virginia. A Crystal Ball Prediction has turned in favor of Virginia Tech of landing another commit from the Commonwealth.

Four-star wide receiver Micah Matthews de-committed from South Carolina after he committed to play baseball for the Gamecocks and reopened his recruitment for football. He will announce his decision on Wednesday (July 10) and the latest prediction is swinging toward the Hokies.

Virginia Tech gets a Crystal Ball Prediction for Micah Matthews

According to 247Sports Crystal Ball Prediction, Matthews is favored to land in Blacksburg which would add another four-star wide receiver in the Class of 2025 if he picks the Hokies. Currently, Virginia Tech has a commitment from four-star Matthew Outten from Portsmouth, Va.

When Matthews re-opened his recruitment, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Utah, and Virginia were the top four schools, and the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Bridgewater native is the 112th overall prospect in his class and the fifth-ranked recruit in Virginia.

In the Class of 2025, Virginia Tech's class ranking is moving up the ranks with Outten leading the way on the offensive side of the ball. Quarterbacks Kelden Ryan from DeSoto, Texas, AJ Brand from South Carolina, and wide receiver Jayden Anderson are key commits. Carter Stallard along the offensive line joins Nathan Wright committed to Pry and his staff.

Matthews is a top baseball prospect in his class, but he is not expected to enter the MLB Draft following his senior season and rather join the school he commits to in football. Landing him would give the Hokies a very talented wide receiver room in the Class of 2025 and only strengthen Virginia Tech's in-state recruiting under Pry.
