COMMIT! Virginia gets pledge from D.C. prospect Charles Snowden

New, comment

Lanky athlete will need coaching, development to be impact FBS player

NCAA Football: Virginia at Duke Mark Dolejs-USA TODAY Sports

The Virginia Cavaliers followed their big win over Duke on Saturday with a commitment from athlete Charles Snowden on Sunday night.

Snowden is an under-the-radar guy from the D.C. area, playing his prep ball for St. Albans. He has no other offers, but had received an offer in basketball from St. Francis in Pennsylvania.

As a football prospect, Snowden is ... raw. He looks great on film against sub-FBS talent but generally plays out of control. Frank Wintrich will have his work cut out to put more football weight on Snowden’s 6’7, 200-pound frame. With some coaching by Ruffin McNeill—and more than a few trips to the buffet line—there’s plenty of explosiveness here to bring some havoc off the edge. Just don't expect Snowden to be an impact player from Day One.
