Bronco Mendenhall and the Virginia Cavaliers picked up a big commitment Wednesday, with former UNC Tarheel Jared Cohen announcing he was transferring to UVA.

Cohen played one year in Chapel Hill, playing in 13 games for Larry Fedora in 2014. He left the team after just one season, and was granted his release by the university in October. He will be eligible to play immediately for the Hoos.

The coaching staff in the McCue Center was ... excited.

Coming out of the McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland, the 6'4 offensive guard was the #14 guard in the country and rated a 4-star recruit by Rivals and 247, and a 3-star by ESPN.
