#NewStandard18: Virginia signs WR Ugo Obasi to NLI

Maryland receiver chooses UVA over Duke, Wisconsin, Penn State.

NCAA Football: Georgia Tech at Virginia Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Ugo Obasi

Hometown: Gwynn Oak, MD

Position: WR

Ratings: *** (.8527 in 247 Composite)

Obasi chose the Hoos over Big Ten schools Wisconsin and Penn State, and he held offers from ACC programs Duke and Wake Forest. He’s only 6-1, but he’s quick. In an interview with 247, Obasi said he based his decision on four factors: Location, academics, athletics, and relationships.

“Virginia met all four of my factors for a college decision perfectly,” he told Jamie Oakes in that same interview. Obasi also mentioned that WR coach Marques Hagans was a huge impact on his decision, as was Virginia’s emphasis on family - a message that never wavered during the recruiting process.

Ugo has the best Twitter handle (@ugogotswg) so far today.

Welcome to Virginia, Ugo!
