SIGNING DAY DECISIONS

While the National Signing Day suspense isn’t what it used to be, there are some Cavalier targets who have yet to announce their college intentions. We’ll update this page accordingly as those decisions are made. Here is a rundown …

Mekhi Becton, OL, Highland Springs (VA)

One of UVA’s top targets in this process, the 6’7″, 300-pound Becton is set to choose from five schools — Louisville, Michigan, Oregon, Virginia and Virginia Tech. His announcement will happen around 9:30 a.m. Based on our most recent information, Virginia is not likely to be the pick.

UPDATE: Becton chose Louisville.

Three other Cavalier targets to watch hail from Hawaii. All three took official visits to Virginia back in December.  They are …

Miki Suguturaga, DE, Punahou (Honolulu, HI)

UPDATE: Suguturaga committed to Utah

Mo Unutoa, OL, Kapa’a (HI)

UPDATE: Unutoa committed to Utah

Aliki Vimahi, DL, Kahuku (HI)

UPDATE: Vimahi committed to Utah

At this point, it appears UVA’s best bet is with Vimahi.
