Henson is a Hoo

Mike London and the Virginia staff are on an absolute tear in the month of June. UVA landed their 6th commitment in two weeks on Tuesday, when New Jersey native Brad Henson committed to the Cavaliers. Henson, a Guard, becomes the 2nd O-Line commitment in as many days, after Jack McDonald made his pledge on Monday. Henson chose Virginia over five other finalists: Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Miami and Wisconsin. Henson held 17 offers total, and is rated a high 3-star prospect by all four major recruiting services. The New Jersey native becomes the 15th member of Virginia's 2013 class.

At 6'5'' 275, Brad Henson is basically the exact same size as fellow UVA commit Jack McDonald. Like McDonald, Henson is slotted to play Guard in Charlottesville. Henson's film shows a player that is strong enough to dominate smaller guys he faces, and athletic enough to handle bigger Defensive Linemen, using excellent footwork. Henson, along with McDonald and Connecticut native Sadiq Olarewaju, make for really nice additions to Virginia's offensive line going forward.

Frankly, I didn't see this commitment coming when it did. Henson seemed pretty open to all of his choices, and Virginia was in a good spot just being among his final group. After several recent visits to SEC schools, Henson wrapped up his commitment in favor of the Cavaliers. Fresh off the commitment of McDonald, and with Olanrewaju already in the fold, Brad Henson's commitment probably wraps up UVA's pursuit of offensive linemen in this cycle. Henson is a really nice get for the Cavaliers. The 2013 class has been really, really solid so far, and may end up being London's most impressive class, top to bottom, so far. Every player in the fold so far, with the exception of Hipolito Corporan, has at least 1 other BCS level offer. If Virginia can land their top two remaining targets, Taquan "Smoke" Mizzell and Wyatt Teller, this class will be a resounding success. With 2014's in-state class looking to be perhaps the Commonwealth's best ever, Virginia's Football recruiting looks to be in a really nice place.
