The Virginia football program picked up another commitment from the talent rich DMV area when Potomac Falls linebacker Grant Misch announced his choice of the Hoos on Wednesday. The Cavaliers now have 20 commits in the 2018 class.

As part of his commitment to UVA, Misch wrote:

“This recruiting process has truly been a once in a lifetime experience. I would like to thank God for making this all possible for me, my family for all the support and all they do for me, my teammates for always pushing me towards success, and all my coaches for mentoring me since I was young. I also give thanks to all the schools that believed in me and gave me an incredible opportunity. I am 100% confident in my decision and I am extremely excited to announce that I am committed to The University of Virginia!! Go Hoos!”

Misch joins cornerback DJ Brown (St. John’s College/Washington D.C.), receiver Ugo Obasi (Milford Mill/Baltimore), and linebacker Noah Taylor (Avalon/Gaithersburg, Maryland) as commitments from the D.C.-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) region. He chose the Cavaliers over offers from Maryland, Purdue, Rutgers, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Wake Forest among many others. The Hoos offered in May. (They’ve also offered his teammate Dean Ferguson.)

Misch visited UVA over the weekend when many recruits, including a pair of recruited walk-ons that also committed, were in Charlottesville. His father played at the U.S. Naval Academy.

In this profile from recruitNoVA writer John Harvey, Misch was quoted as saying his “playing style is old school, hard-nosed football” with “no flash” and that should fit in with Bronco Mendenhall’s ‘less drama, more work’ mantra. Misch tallied 96 tackles (11.5 tackles for loss), five forced fumbles, and an interception as junior for Potomac Falls. Check out the Hudl highlights for the 6’4” and 225-pound linebacker below.
