By our count, 18 uncommitted high school juniors have been offered by the University of Virginia men’s basketball program. I’ll break down where I think the Hoos stand with each of these prospects soon in a “Strategy Session” feature, but in the meantime let’s take a look at the latest highlights of these prospects.

The previous feature, which you can see by clicking here, focused on point and combo guards. This feature focuses on small forward and post targets.
