Dante Lovett 2023 Commitment

3-star athlete Dante Lovett from DeMatha Catholic High School has committed to Virginia Tech for the 2023 recruiting class.


Lovett (6-1, 185) picked the Hokies from a list of 15 offers, including a final four of Virginia Tech, Maryland, Cincinnati and Boston College. He is ranked the No. 13 player in the state of Maryland in the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Lovett has been recruited by Virginia Tech for nearly a year. His Twitter profile references attending a camp at Virginia Tech back in early June of 2021, and from that point on, he received attention from Virginia Tech, tweeting multiple VT-produced graphics and tagging former Hokies cornerbacks coach Ryan Smith in the process.

Lovett attended Virginia Tech’s game against Notre Dame last October, but it doesn’t appear he was offered by the previous Hokies staff. Lovett first tweeted about the new Virginia Tech staff on March 9th, tagging new cornerbacks coach Derek Jones. He visited Virginia Tech on April 12th, was offered that day, and committed today.

Given his recruiting history with the Hokies, with Derek Jones as his primary recruiter, it appears that Virginia Tech sees Lovett, who has played both wide receiver and cornerback, as a CB.

  1. I just like that he didn’t say he will be attending for the next 3-4 yrs..He should have said 5 yrs, as he will need a redshirt…but he was wise enough to say 4 yrs and not call us the University of Virginia Tech. Welcome..put some lbs on and he should be good to go.

  2. His size, the way he breaks on the ball and tackles reminds me of Macho. Don’t know if he is as fast, and doubt whether he had the offensive stats Macho had. Oh, if only he has the career!

  3. gonna have to hit the weight room …. welcome aboard ……… you can become a player better than you ever thought

  4. Congrats Dante. You are going to love being a Hokie the rest of your life. Enjoy your Senior year and keep on working harder than the rest.
