Virginia Gets BIG Commit On the Transfer Market

NCAA Football: Virginia at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavalier football coaching staff struck gold on the transfer market today getting a commitment from Notre Dame transfer John Montelus.

The 6-4, 310 pound lineman was a 4-star recruit coming out of Everett, MA, with a star-studded offer sheet. He was recruited to South Bend as an offensive lineman, but was switched to the D-line going into Notre Dame’s bowl game last season.

It’s unclear what position the big man will play, but most would assume he would help UVa’s O-Line, which is in desperate need of experienced help going into the 2017 season.

Being a graduate transfer, Montelus will be able to play immediately.
