Two former Virginia Cavaliers stars heard their name in this weekend’s NFL Draft, as the Kansas City Chiefs selected safety Juan Thornhill with the 63rd pick and the San Francisco 49ers took cornerback Tim Harris 198th overall. Plenty of other Virginia Cavaliers also signed with NFL teams as undrafted free agents following the completion of the draft on Saturday evening. On the lacrosse front, the men’s team stormed back from four goals down in the fourth quarter to defeat North Carolina, 14-13, advancing them to the ACC Tournament championship game.
NCAA.com’s Andy Katz included freshman guard Kihei Clark on his list of rising stars ahead of next year’s college basketball season. Katz cited Clarks “floor game” and “defensive prowess” as some of the key elements that could make him a difference maker in the ACC.
Following Virginia’s march to the NCAA title, Head Coach Tony Bennett announced to CBS’ Jim Nantz that his father, Dick Bennett, promised to play Augusta National with him if they can get another tee time. That promise will come true later this week when the two are scheduled to take the course.
Another Wahoo will have a new home in 2019, as the Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with former Baltimore Ravens’ starting defensive lineman Brent Urban, an All-ACC honorable mention in 2013, on Friday.
