One of the nation's top interior offensive lineman has made his college decision. Gunner Givens, a four-star offensive lineman from Lord Botetourt High School in Daleville, Virginia, announced Friday afternoon on CBS Sports HQ that he will continue his playing career at Virginia Tech. Givens chose the Hokies over finalists Penn State, Alabama, Clemson, North Carolina and Ohio State.
His commitment is a big boost for coach Justin Fuente. Givens, 6-foot-5, 270-pounder is ranked No. 131 overall, is the fourth-best offensive line prospect and is the fifth-ranked player in the state of Virginia in the Class of 2022. Givens told CBS Sports HQ that the idea of playing for Virginia Tech is something that he's been hoping to do for a very long time.
"I've been going to Tech games since I've been a little kid," he said. "I've been dreaming of coming out of the tunnel to 'Enter Sandman'."
