Commitment! Virginia football lands offensive lineman Dillon Reinkensmeyer

STL recaps UVa's latest pledge

Finally an offensive lineman!

While head coach Mike London and company had been on a tear as of late, the Hoos were sorely lacking in the trenches.

On Monday morning however, the offensive line got a boost when Highlands Ranch (Colorado) native Dillon Reinkensmeyer became the 15th member of the class of 2016.

The 6-5, 255 pound tackle selected the Wahoos over offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Air Force, and Kansas among others.

Reinkensmeyer is rated between two and three stars depending on the service, but since he's an offensive lineman, we consider this a major major major haul for Virginia.

The Wahoos, and Hokies for that matter have had a difficult time keeping the top in-state linemen home for this cycle, causing both staffs to cast wider nets when it comes to the trenches. Virginia would love to bring in at least five linemen for the class of 2016, and the Hoos are one step closer.

Reinkensmeyer is the second OL pledge for 2016, joining Indiana native Ben Knutson.

UVa's newest commit is not the biggest lineman out there, but as seen on the film above, Reinkensmeyer is fierce, has excellent hands, and never seems to give up on a play.

While the bulk of the quality in-state linemen are off the board, expect UVa to turn up the heat on Riverbend offensive tackle Zach Adams. Adams is one of the hottest prospects in the region, but the Wahoos were the first school to extend an offer to the talented OT.
