UVa landed their second offensive lineman of the day when George Adeosun announced on twitter that he would be a Wahoo.

George Adeosun is a Cavalier. He chose Virginia over offers from Oklahoma, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Purdue and others. The Peach State product blew up late in the process, grabbing a bunch of FBS offers after being committed to William & Mary. Virginia was the first FBS program to offer Adeosun, and he visited Charlottesville on an official visit back in January. Adeosun is ranked a 4-star prospect by 247Sports, and a 2-star prospect by Rivals. Its worth noting on that Rivals ranking that they were done evaluating 2013 prospects when Adeosun's film was released and his offer list exploded.

Adeosun is a raw talent, who hasn't been playing football for too long. Part of the reason for his lack of major offers until late was his lack of film, and the fact that he didn't really go to any camps over the summer. But when you put on the tape, Adeosun's athleticism and strength jump out. The Alpharetta prospect more than held his own against one of the nations top defensive ends, Carl Lawson, helping his stock soar.

George Adeosun is a great late get for the Hoos. Virginia wanted to add depth and talent to the offensive line late in this class, and they did that with Adeosun and Eric Tetlow. Both players chose Virginia on signing day, and add to an already talented group of linemen in this class. Top-flight academics may have swung things in the Cavaliers favor in this recruitment, over the in-state power Dawgs. The Virginia staff did a great job finding Adeosun, getting him to Grounds, and sealing the deal on Signing Day.
