Commitment! David Curry

The Cavaliers land number 10 for the class of 2015

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

After falling in love with the university weeks ago, Buford (Ga.) safety David Curry finally ended his recruitment on Wednesday evening, becoming the 10th member of UVa's class of 2015.

Curry selected the Cavaliers over offers from Iowa State and the University of Richmond.

Curry was offered by Virginia in March, and many wondered not if, but when he would pull the trigger.

The 6-1, 190 pound safety is sound open-field tackler, and boy does he lay the lumber. Curry has shown the ability to come out of nowhere and make a viscous hit on the ball carrier. His nose for the football will be a perfect compliment to fellow safety commit Juan Thornhill who is still learning the safety position. In addition to Curry and Thornhill, the Wahoos have another defensive back already in the fold, in Johnstown cornerback Kareem Gibson.

Curry comes from one of the top high school programs in the nation, in Buford, the same school that produced Virginia cornerback C.J. Moore. Fellow current Buford Wolf, Joshua Thomas has a UVa offer, but it is not clear where the Cavaliers rank on his list.

The Georgia safety is Virginia's first verbal in nearly three weeks, after a hot streak in late May-mid June. The rest of the class includes:

Juan Thornhill, DB-Altavista, Va

Ryan Bischoff, OL-Plymouth Meeting, Pa.

Nick Johns, QB-Washington D.C.

David Eldridge, WR-Nokesville, Va

Tanner Cowley, TE-Manasquan, Nj.

Grant Polk, OT-Punta Gorda, Fl.

RJ Proctor, OT, Bealeton, Va

James Trucilia, DT, Erie Pa.

Kareem Gibson, CB, Johnstown Pa.
