Virginia football recruiting: Four commits enroll early

Four members of Virginia's large 2016 class are already on Grounds

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

With football's national signing day only two weeks away, Virginia's football coaches got four of their committed players in Charlottesville and enrolled in spring semester classes.

A search of U.Va.'s people directory showed that Christian Baumgardner, Holland Corbett, Tre Harbison, and Matt Terrell are all enrolled students. All four are in the College of Arts & Sciences.

Below are mini profiles of the four newest additions to the Virginia Cavaliers.

Christian Baumgardner - TE

Baumgardner is rated a three-star prospect out of Ocean City, New Jersey. He ranked in the top 50 prospects statewide in 247Sports' end of season rankings. At 6'4, 250, Baumgardner has prototypical size for a tight end. He finished 2015 with 32 catches for 371 yards and 3 TDs.

Holland Corbett - PK

Corbett played his high school football at Western Albemarle, and took a post-graduate year at Fork Union Military Academy. The three-star kicker is 6'0, 170, and was a two-sport athlete for WAHS, playing lacrosse as well as football. Corbett committed to Virginia twice: once as a walk-on coming out of WAHS, and again with a scholarship offer this season.

Tre Harbison - RB

The most heralded of the early enrollees, and potentially the best prospect in the entire class of 2016 commitments to Virginia, Harbison is a three-star back out of Shelby, NC. He held offers from seven other ACC programs, including North Carolina and NC State. Harbison is rated a high three-star by most of the recruiting services. In his senior season at Crest High School, Tre rushed for more than 2000 yards and scored 37 touchdowns. He finished his career with almost 5700 yards and 99 rushing touchdowns.

Matt Terrell - LB

A lanky 6'4, 225 backer out of Lynchburg's Liberty Christian Academy, Terrell committed to Virginia back in July. Terrell played for Chris Rocco, a name familiar to any Virginia fan. Like the other enrollees, Terrell is a three-star rated recruit.
