4-star OL, key Virginia Tech target Gunner Givens sets decision date

Gunner Givens is set to make his college decision.

On Friday (July 16), Givens will make his pick, which he announced on Twitter. The current leaders for Givens, a 4-star prospect, are Virginia Tech and Penn State.

Givens ranks as the No. 131 prospect in the 2022 recruiting class and the No. 4 player in the state of Virginia, per 247 Sports Composite. A product of Daleville (Va.) Lord Botetourt, the 6-foot-5, 270-pound Givens took an official visit to Blacksburg on June 4.

Two weeks after the trip to Virginia Tech, Givens took an official visit to Penn State, too. Plenty of other power programs — including Michigan, Alabama, LSU, Notre Dame and Ohio State — also offered Givens.

However, Virginia Tech appears to be the favorite to land Givens. This would be a massive get for Justin Fuente.

The Hokies are in the midst of assembling a deep, talented 2022 class. With 18 commits on file, Virginia Tech’s class ranks No. 16 nationally — for now, that is. Givens would be the second 4-star prospect for VT and the top overall player.

Last week, Virginia Tech scored another major commitment: 4-star running back Ramon Brown, another in-state prospect who pick VT over Penn State, Maryland, West Virginia and South Carolina.
