The Virginia Tech Hokies and head coach Justin Fuente picked up a huge commitment on Wednesday night from four-star quarterback Dematrius Davis from North Shore High in Houston, Tx.

Davis visited Blacksburg on Saturday for the Hokies’ impressive 36-17 win over Wake Forest. Not only was Lane Stadium an electric atmosphere, Tech also played its most complete game of the season on both sides of the ball. And Davis noticed.

While Davis is a member of the class of 2021 and we have just over a year until the early signing period, quarterbacks who commit early don’t often back out of their pledges unless there are things like a coaching change, etc.

So, yes, the Hokies must keep Davis in the fold, and that will undoubtedly be Fuente’s No. 1 priority over the next year.

What kind of player is Virginia Tech getting in Davis?

At 5’11”, 190 pounds, Davis is a dual threat. He possesses a strong arm who has shown to be accurate to all levels of the field. He is a terrific athlete who has outstanding pocket awareness for such a young player. Davis had a standout sophomore year, racking up numerous honors en route to leading his team to a state title.

Davis held numerous offers from schools such as LSU, Texas A&M and Florida State. For the Hokies to pull an elite player out of Texas, specifically a quarterback, is massive for Fuente and his staff.

Part of the reason the class of 2020 is so small is because of all of the youth on the current roster. The projection was 2021 was set to be a big year for the Hokies on the recruiting trail and Davis is the third commit to jump on board, all in recent weeks. He is obviously the biggest domino and more are sure to follow.

Davis is the type of recruit who can get others to follow him to Blacksburg and now the Hokies must finish strong on the field in 2019. This was a big one, Hokies.
