The Wahoos landed their 7th commitment for the 2013 class. How many Quarterbacks is too many Quarterbacks? Will the Cutler commitment have any impact on one of the top players in the nation in the 2014 class? Find out in this edition of Recruiting Roundup.
UVA lands Cutler
The Cavaliers landed their 7th commitment for the 2012 class this week, when Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach) Quarterback Corwin Cutler jumped on board. The fan response was somewhat mixed, as some were excited to add another talented player to the fold, and others had reservations about Virginia taking yet another Quarterback. In 2013, UVA will have at least 7 scholarship Quarterbacks (Rocco, Watford, Sims, Lambert, Johns, Marshall, Cutler), barring any attrition. My take is whenever you see a Quarterback that you think can be a major contributor to the program, you take them. It's better to have too many Quarterbacks than not enough, or the right guy.
247sports launches 2014 Top 100
And 7 Virginians made the list. We've told you before that the state is loaded for the 2014 class, and this just backed that up. The 2014 year will be the Commonwealth's richest recruiting class, at least in the modern recruiting era. In addition to the top 2 players in the nation overall (Da'Shawn Hand & Andrew Brown) the state is home to Safety Quin Blanding (#12) Quarterback Caleb Henderson (#30), Defensive End Jayln Holmes (#33), Defensive Tackle Derrick Nnadi (#93) and Wide Receiver Jamil Kamara (#100). UVA is in great shape for Brown and Kamara, lead for Blanding, Henderson and Nnadi, and trail the Hokies big time for Holmes. Hand's recruitment hasn't really gotten going yet, as he has only taken one college visit thus far, to Tech's spring game.
Andrew Brown has a big week
The aforementioned #2 player in the nation in 247's Top 100 for 2014, Brown landed a bunch of big offers this week. On Monday, Nebraska offered. Penn State followed the next day. Wake Forest on Wednesday. Then yesterday, Brown landed offers from Georgia, Syracuse, and Maryland. That's a pretty busy week from an offers standpoint. Expect this to continue for the next few months, until virtually everyone has offered the Defensive End. UVA has to be feeling pretty good about Brown at this point, considering how many times he's visited Charlottesville already, and the fact that two of his cousins, Eli Harold and Corwin Cutler, are now headed to Virginia. If the Cavaliers are going to win the Andrew Brown sweepstakes, they are going to have to beat every school in the country to do it.
