Notes: "good height" ... "does need to work to add more good size to his frame" ... "lacks ideal speed for receiver" ... "can attack the seam" ... "has enough speed to pick up some yards" after catch ... "will work to try and create push" ... Mario Nixon had originally received an offer and committed to Virginia Tech, before flipping and committing to UVa along with his three teammates. The Hokies claim that they rescinded his offer when they found out Nixon had visited UVa. No one but the Hokies believe this.

Quotables: "It was like a family environment there. That kinda made my decision a little bit easier."
