Notes: "Canady was told by the coaches at UVa that he will be playing cornerback when he arrives in Charlottesville" ... "fluid hips and smooth change-of-direction" ... "Focus and awareness in traffic is very good" ... "very good hands and catches the ball away from his body" ... "a non-BCS caliber prospect" ... lanky


"I'm excited. I love corner. I play that now. I'm very athletic and I have smooth hips and quick feet so I think it will be a good fit."

"I took a lot away from Coach London's talk with us as a class. He expects us to each finish our senior year strong in the classroom. I also realized how much UVa is like a family and how much people are willing to help."
