Tomorrow was supposed to be the day for Cavalier fans to be on commitment watch, but Good Counsel WR/DB Myles Robinson got the party started a little early. The 5-11, 175 pound speedster committed to Mike London and the Wahoos on Monday afternoon, becoming the 15th member of the ever-growing class of 2015.
Robinson selected Virginia over offers from 2013 BCS Bowl participants, Ohio State and Michigan State, as well as West Virginia.
Robinson has not visited grounds since his sophomore year, but will return as a commit on August 16th.
The three-star athlete is a gamer on both sides of the ball, earning honorable mention All-WCAC honorers as a defensive back last season. According to Robinson, the Cavalier coaching staff sees him as an "athlete" and view him as a contributor on either offense or defense. Wherever Robinson ends up, he will be in good company. Virginia already has cornerback Kareem Gibson, and wide receiver David Eldridge in the fold for 2015.
Robinson's high school program, Good Counsel has been kind to UVa over the years. The WCAC powerhouse produced current Wahoos, Vince Croce, Kirk Garner, Andre Levrone, and Brendan Marshall, as well as former defensive tackle, Nick Jenkins.
After struggling with top targets in the DMV in 2014, the Cavaliers have rebounded nicely in the talent-rich area this year, bringing in quarterback Nick Johns from big-time high school program, Gonzaga, to go along with Robinson. The Wahoos could make it three from the D.C. area tomorrow, as linebacker Kareem McDonald will make his decision at 2:00 p.m. Three hours later, four-star middle linebacker Jahvoni Simmons will make his decision, and Virginia is the odds on favorite as well.
Here is the rest of the 2015 class to date:
