During the last week, Virginia football picked up a solid 2022 commitment: 3-star in-state quarterback Davis Lane. Virginia quickly offered Lane following a workout in Charlottesville.
Lane is one of seven commits the Cavaliers have in what’s shaping up to be a strong 2022 recruiting class. This group includes 4-star wide receiver Dakota Twitty, who committed to UVA in late May over NC State and Georgia Tech.
Lane plays his prep ball for Lynchburg (Va.) Liberty Christian Academy, which is notable for another big reason. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound quarterback is good friends with Zach Rice, a teammate at Liberty Christian Academy and one of the top players in the 2022 class.
In fact, 247 Sports ranks Rice as the No. 1 offensive tackles in the 2022 recruiting class and a top five prospect, overall.
Five programs have emerged as the favorites to land Rice, including two from the ACC: Ohio State, Notre Dame, Alabama, North Carolina and Virginia.
The 6-foot-6, 282-pound Rice will take an official visit to Virginia later this week; this follows an official visit last week to Ohio State. Rice also has visits to Alabama and Notre Dame on the docket for later in June, too.
Recently, Rice took an unofficial visit to UNC.
