In a 2-8 season for Virginia Football, the focus has already shifted to next year for many cavalier fans, and yesterday the spotlight was on one area that has people excited. Virginia is now one of two FBS programs that has 2 top ten players committed for the class of 2014 ( the other is Alabama). Quin Blanding and Andrew Brown are expected to make an immediate impact for Virginia next year. Brown, will enroll in January, and has already completed his paper work for admission and financial aid.
Brown, is the number 4 player in the class according to most recruiting services and the number one defensive tackle. Mike London talked about the caliber of player and person Brown is yesterday. ” You don’t want to annoint a high school guy as being ‘the guy’ I mean he still has to go against college age offensive lineman that will be fourth and fifth year guys. But you do look at a skill level and a skill set that this young man possesses that you can see why he is as good as advertised.” London also went on to describe Brown as a person. ” More than anything else, he’s a great young man, and that’s always number one in my book.” London and the Cavaliers travel to Miami for a noon game Saturday. Coverage on WINA with Cavalier Countdown begins at 9:30am. Discussion of the Hoos is always available on the Best Seat in the House, weeknights at 6, on 1070 WINA, and ESPN 1450.
