Is the #TX2VT movement back alive? Well, we won’t go that far, but the Virginia Tech Hokies picked up their second commitment for the 2022 recruiting class from the Lone Star State on Wednesday when offensive lineman Johnny Dickson pledged to the Hokies.

Dickson, a three-star offensive lineman from Flour Bluff High in Corpus Christi, Texas, stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 280 pounds. Dickson had an impressive offer list that includes Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Oklahoma State.

Dickson announced his commitment via Twitter.

First off I would like to thank God, without him none of this would be possible. All praise and glory goes to him. Next I would like to thank my mom and dad for paving the way for me to be a successful young black man and providing me with the support I need to make it through. My brother Cameran for being my best friend and my motivation to be a great role model. I want to thank my teammates and coaches at Flour Bluff high school. For helping me through this graceful journey. Lastly I want to thank my trainers, close friends, and family for supporting me through these last 3 years of my football journey. With that being said, I have decided to commit to Virginia Tech University to extend my athletic and academic career. Special thanks to Coach Davidson and the rest of the coaching staff for this unbelievable opportunity.

Dickson’s commitment comes on the heels of the Hokies landing three-star quarterback Alex Orji. Orji plays his high school football at Sachse High in Sachse, Texas.

Dickson is commitment No. 5 for 2022. He joins a class that includes another offensive lineman in Braelin Moore, Orji, tight end Harrison Saint Germain and quarterback Devin Farrell.

Dickson is a Virginia native, having spent part of his life in Virginia Beach until he moved in the eighth grade.

Dickson is expected to play guard at Virginia Tech.

Yes, there is a long way until the early signing period, but this is another good pickup for the Hokies. Offensive line coach Vance Vice continues to do an outstanding job.
