3-star QB Davi Belfort sets commitment date
Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Gulliver Prep three-star quarterback Davi Belfort is announcing his commitment on March 22. Michigan State, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech are his finalists.
Belfort is the No. 589 overall prospect and No. 33 quarterback in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 80 player in Florida.
The 5-foot-11.5, 185-pound signal-caller is the son of former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort. According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine, the Hokies have a commanding lead for his commitment at 81.2%.
“Most importantly a program I feel comfortable in,” Belfort told Jason Killop of SpartanMag about what is important to him. “Not only football, but going to school there and living for three-to-four years. That is what is most important. I also want to go to a program that can develop me best for the next level. Lastly, how hard a program is recruiting me and who I will be surrounded by.”
“In the off-season, a big thing I have been working on is my accuracy,” Belfort also shared. “The hard work came to fruition during the season. It was unfortunate I ended up getting hurt, but I was there for my teammates helping them. The time I played went really well. Now I am just getting back. I can start throwing again in two weeks.”
Belfort has an On3 NIL Valuation of $205K. The On3 NIL Valuation is an index that looks to set the standard market value for both high school and college-level athletes. The NIL valuation does not act as a tracker of the value of NIL deals an athlete has completed to date. It rather signifies an athlete’s value at a certain moment in time.
Belfort breaks down Michigan State and Virginia Tech
Belfort discussed his interest in Michigan State and Virginia Tech with Killop.
Michigan State: “We talk pretty much everyday, Coach (Jay) Johnson and I, and I have talked to Coach (Mel) Tucker on the phone as well. We really got to get to know the coaches there. We got to spend some really good quality time with Coach Johnson. Coach Tucker, and the whole offensive staff. It was great. I really felt that family atmosphere.”
“I really feel like Michigan State checks all the boxes for me and what I want,” he added. “They are definitely very, very high in my recruitment right now.”
Virginia Tech: “(My visit) went great. I really enjoyed it. They have a great family atmosphere. It is a great city with great people there. I had a really fun time there. I have a great relationship with those coaches and some of the players in that program.”
