Justin Fuente and Virginia Tech got some tough recruiting news this week. Dematrius Davis, the top prospect in Virginia Tech’s 2021 class, decommitted from the Hokies.
Davis, a 4-star dual-threat quarterback, rates as a top-100 prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle, per 247 Sports. The 6-foot, 180-pound Houston product rates as the No. 6 dual-threat QB in the class; Davis is also a top-20 prospect in the state of Texas.
Auburn, led by Chad Morris, is now the frontrunner for Davis.

Initially, Davis committed to Virginia Tech last November. After that decision, Davis emerged as a vocal/active recruiter for the program on social media, which Gobbler Country made note of.
As of right now, Virginia Tech’s 2021 class is down to five commits; three of those prospects committed in either late March or earlier April. The Hokies still have a commitment from 4-star receiver Latrell Neville, another Texas product.
Davis and Neville are, currently, schedule to visit Virginia Tech June 20. On Twitter, Davis said he still plans to take the visit, but we’ll see how things progress, especially as concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic remain.
