Athlete, Class of 2020

The rehabilitation is still ongoing. Earlier this year, while in wrestling practice, Irwin County (Ga.) three-star athlete DJ Lundy hurt his knee. He wrestled through it, but during non-contact football drills this summer, Lundy heard a pop. The result was a torn meniscus.
Two weeks ago, Lundy had surgery to repair the bucket tear in his meniscus. He still has at least four weeks of rehab, but he’s hopeful to see the field sometime late this season.
In the meantime, what Lundy can do is work on his recruitment. He’s finalizing details for three official visits in December that should get him one step closer to making a decision.
“I have a top list, I just haven’t revealed it yet,” Lundy said. “As of right now, my favorite would probably be Virginia Tech. I talk to them almost every day. They’ve been real consistent recruiting me, and I just like the coaches there.”
Lundy, Rivals.com’s No. 47 running back and No. 76 player in Georgia for 2020, has primarily been in contact with special teams coordinator James Shibest, and they’ve discovered they have a lot in common, including a love for the outdoors.
“When we have a conversation, he’s just cool people,” Lundy said. “It’s just the way we talk, a bunch of laughs. It’s a friendly atmosphere, and I love that. Mainly, we just talk about all kinds of stuff, just Virginia Tech in general, going fishing and hunting, stuff like that, that I like to do.
“If possible, I want to go somewhere I can hunt and fish. It isn’t necessary, but more than likely, I want to go do that.”
Lundy said he’ll definitely officially visit...
