The Cavalier football coaching staff struck gold on the transfer market today getting a commitment from Notre Dame transfer John Montelus.
I want to thank all of the programs that offered me the opportunity… https://t.co/jD3rdj83l2— John Montelus (@big_john_74) December 11, 2016
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.
