I first want to give thanks to God! Without him none of this would have been possible. To my parents and siblings thank you for your endless support. I will be committing to the University of Virginia! ️ ️ ️ #GoHoos! #Next1Up #IAmNotRegular #Blessed pic.twitter.com/CyJG6iQVb7— Dakota Dak Twitty (@dakota_twitty) May 26, 2021
Hailing from Mooresboro, NC and Thomas Jefferson Class Academy (not sure he could go anywhere else), Twitty fits the mold of a UVA wide receiver to a T. At 6-5, 215, Twitty will slide right in with 6-4, 215 sophomore Nathaniel Beal III and 6-7, 210 sophomore Lavel Davis Jr., who the Cavaliers will look to feature moving forward, though Davis will miss the 2021 season after suffering an ACL injury in spring practice.
Twitty should also capture the attention of NFL scouts during his time at UVA with his strong frame and stature. He has the ability to go up strong for the ball and is explosive after the catch. Below are some highlights from his junior season.
Twitty is UVA’s fifth commitment for the class of 2022 and the highest rated thus far according to 247 Sports. He ended up choosing UVA over offers from NC State, Georgia Tech, UNC, Ole Miss, and others.
