Commitment! Virginia Football scores cornerback Chris Moore

UVa lands 12th commitment in the class of 2016

The Cavaliers received their second commitment in just over the past 24 hours, and 12th overall, late Wednesday night as Ashburn, VA native Chris Moore chose the Hoos.

A 6-foot-2, 185 pound cornerback from Broad Run High School, Moore received an offer from Mike London and company following his showing at UVa's 7-on-7 tournament this past weekend and clearly the coaching staff left a positive impression.

Moore picked Virginia over offers from Army, Air Force, Navy and a few smaller programs.

Moore, who is unrated by the major scouting services, is the program's fourth defensive commitment for 2016 and the third defensive back, joining three-star Nick Grant and two-star Darrius Bratton, who committed on Tuesday.

Moore is now the seventh in-state recruit that Virginia has picked up in its 12-man Class of 2016 so far.
