The 2024 class in Virginia is looking like a fairly strong group of players from all across the Commonwealth including athlete Kemori Dixon out of George Washington HS in Danville, VA.
Dixon told us that he has been receiving a good amount of interest from the Hokies with safeties coach Pierson Prioleau being the primary recruiter for him currently. Dixon has talked with Prioleau a few times including a conversation he had with the former Super Bowl champion during a recent visit to Blacksburg to support teammates of his at a VT camp.
"Me and him spoke briefly while I was at a camp supporting teammates and when he walked up to me, he knew who I was and the conversation went on from there, and he told me he would stay in touch," Dixon said.
His visit went well as a whole as he shared with us.
"From what I saw as far as the camp part, it was great. I loved the atmosphere and all the great energy that was around," Dixon said.
Tech's interest in Dixon shouldn't come as a surprise after he averaged 18 yards per reception as a sophomore while also having 4 interceptions at safety where Tech is recruiting him at. He's also received a pair of offers from Boston College and Louisville with Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, Virginia, and West Virginia also interested in him in addition to VT.
So how would Dixon describe the strengths and weaknesses of his game?
"My strengths are that I have an eye for the ball and able to read the defense along with the physicality. All my weaknesses I’ve worded to improve them so I couldn’t give you any off the top of my head cause I’ve improved on them," Dixon said.
Dixon also has some big goals for his upcoming season as he shared with us.
"Just to be successful and come out as the #1 team and strive for states," Dixon said.
Virginia Tech has found plenty of great talent out of the Danville area before with Kemori Dixon being the latest Danville recruit to keep an eye on.
