Another Friday, another big day for Virginia Tech recruiting.
We wrote about Bryson Jennings and his announcement set for Thursday afternoon. Unfortunately, the son of former Hokie, Bryan Jennings, opted to commit to the North Carolina Tar Heels. While disappointing, I would certainly expect Tech’s coaches to recruit Jennings until he signs.
Now, back to Friday. Four-star offensive lineman Gunner Givens is scheduled to make his announcement at 6 p.m. ET on CBS Sports HQ. This is the same outfit Ramon Brown used for his commitment announcement.
COMMITMENT TIME HAS CHANGED TO 6 TOMORROW ON CBS SPORTS‼️— Gunner Givens (@givens_gunner) July 15, 2021
From nearby Lord Botetourt High School, Givens has long been an important target for Virginia Tech’s coaching staff in this cycle. He was always viewed as a must-get for this staff.
Hopefully, the Hokies receive good news on Friday afternoon. Givens is choosing between the Hokies and Penn State. The Nittany Lions have been a thorn in the side of the Hokies for several years now; let’s hope that changes on Friday.
