There is nothing better to kick off a class than with a dynamic quarterback, and Davi Belfort is the epitome of that. His snappy release and dynamic running ability made him a priority for the Hokies. Belfort, a 5-10 185-pound signal caller, is a newly minted Under Armour All-American and the son of UFC legend Vitor Belfort. He is ranked as the 32nd-best player in Florida’s 2024 class by

Belfort had scholarship offers from many of the best programs in the country before committing to Tech: Alabama, Georgia, Michigan, Oregon, Ole Miss, Miami, and others had extended offers to him. He released a top-three schools list that included Virginia Tech, Michigan State, and Texas A&M in January of this year. And after visits to the aforementioned schools, Belfort announced his commitment to the Hokies via Instagram on March 22.

Belfort was the leader of the Gulliver Prep Raiders (Miami) squad this season. He threw for 1756 yards and 11 touchdowns in seven games. He also added 357 yards on the ground for the Raiders. His head coach, Earl Sims, played his college football as a linebacker at UVA, and Belfort’s most shining moment so far was at the FBU Freshman All-American game in Naples, Florida.

While he may be a bit small in size and height for a quarterback, he makes up for it with his great arm talent. He can set his feet and throws perfect long balls, or he can escape pressure and make throws on the run. He fits the build of a Tyler Bowen QB – someone who runs the RPO and isn't afraid to scramble out of the pocket. He can use his legs when it is needed, but he is not run-first.

Belfort has a very high football IQ and doesn’t make many mistakes when holding the football. He is very accurate and doesn’t force throws. Davi is the first commit of the 2024 class, so hopefully, some of the hype can build into more commitments for Brent Pry and Co.

HUDL Tape:


Been a Hokie as long as I can remember. My Logan Thomas jersey number matched my age at the time of the photo. Love following Hokie Sports and recruiting.

My favorite VT Sports memory was when myself my dad and my grandpa were seated just above the VT sideline as Quincy Patterson barreled into the endzone to seal the 6OT win Vs UNC

Go Hokies!!
