Virginia Tech is off to a fast start to the first days after the NCAA's COVID dead period was lifted kicking off June with a commitment from three-star DL Lemar Law from the 757.
I just want to take the time to thank my family, friends and coaches for pushing me and getting me to where I want to be!!!! With all due I will be taking my talent to VIRGINIA TECH UNIVERSITY ❤️🧡🦃 #Hokies #757 @Beau_Davidson @jcprice59 @EvanGWatkins247 @marlinfootball pic.twitter.com/eqkYVtA88A— lemar law jr (@lemarlawjr1) June 2, 2021
Law becomes the first defensive commit in the 2022 class and the second in-state commit so far in this class along with three-star TE Harrison St Germain. He chose the Hokies over offers from Maryland, Virginia, Old Dominion, and Liberty; and after he visited Virginia Tech yesterday for their major June 1st recruiting kickoff/Junior Day event.
Law had told us previously that Virginia Tech and Maryland were the two schools standing out with the Hokies pushing the hardest. He immediately becomes a great defensive line addition who has tremendous size at 6'5'' and 280 pounds according to 247 Sports and could easily grow into a massive defensive tackle with loads of upside.
This is also the first big commitment where new defensive line assistant J.C. Price was the lead recruiter for the Hokies with Law describing their relationship as a father-son type one adding this on why that's the case.
"We get along like we’ve known each other for a good while and the bond is just there," Law said.
We will have more as this story develops.
