Virginia Football added 18 new members of the #NewStandard18 class, highlighted by a pair of dual-threat quarterbacks - junior college transfer Bryce Perkins and lefty Brennan Armstrong - that will help fill out Coach Mendenhall’s QB depth.
This year, the coaching staff created the “Welcome Wall” upon which various coaches and guest “stars” would affix big heads of the signees.
Martin Weisz was the first of the morning, and Cavman got everything started.

Coach Tujague was pretty fired up for Bobby Haskins’s application to the wall.

As it’s almost Christmas, it’s fitting Santa Claus was on hand...this time to help Coach Howell with Jaylon Baker.

When you sign on your birthday, you’ll also get the coaching staff to sing you ‘Happy Birthday’, as they did for new QB commit Bryce Perkins.
Did we mention it is also @B_Perk3's birthday?— Virginia Football (@UVa_Football) December 20, 2017

When you’re the Thor-terback of the future, you get Cavman with Thor’s Hammer like Brennan Armstrong (and some front-and-center action on the wall!).

The last video of the day announced Tavares Kelly, who “outran a hurricane down in Florida”. Coach Hagans calls him our Christmas present, and I’ll take it! BANG!

It’s fun to see the coaches have a good time and enjoy National Signing Day. As the Hoos improve on the field, the recruits will keep coming. Get excited, Wahoos...Coach Tujage is.
