In addition to players who have already committed to the University of Virginia, there were some prominent targets in Scott Stadium on Saturday to see UVa’s 24-19 win over ACC-rival Pittsburgh. Below is the rundown of those prospects TheSabre.com confirmed to be in attendance. Stay tuned for reports in the coming days and weeks.
UVa commitments Ryan Bischoff (class of 2015), Cole Blackman (class of 2016), RJ Proctor (class of 2015), Juan Thornhill (class of 2015) and James Trucilla (class of 2015) were confirmed to be in Scott Stadium on Saturday.
Bischoff, a product of Plymouth Whitemarsh (Plymouth Meeting, PA), and Proctor, a senior out of Liberty High School (Bealeton, VA), are offensive line recruits. Thornhill, a versatile athlete who likely will play free safety at Virginia, helped Altavista (VA) to a state championship last year. Trucilla is a defensive tackle prospect out of Cathedral Prep in Erie, Pennsylvania.
Blackman is a wide receiver prospect out of Glen Allen High School in Glen Allen, Virginia.
Other Confirmed Visitors
Class of 2015
– Keyshawn Johnson, a 5’11”, 175-pound athlete (WR/CB) out of James Monroe (Fredericksburg, VA). At this point it is not clear where Johnson stands with respect to an offer from UVa, but I’ll see what I can find out.
Class of 2016
– Scooter Harrington, a 6’5″, 230-pound tight end prospect out of Greenwich, Connecticut. Harrington has been offered scholarships by Boston College, Connecticut and Virginia.
– Jarrett Hopple, a 6’6″, 265-pound offensive lineman out of Nansemond River (Suffolk, VA). Hopple reportedly has an offer from the Cavaliers.
– Zach Keller, a 6’5″ quarterback out of Seton Hall Prep (West Orange, N.J.). I do not believe Keller has an offer from the Hoos at this point. A standout in football and basketball, Keller wants to play college football according to this report from the New Jersey Star-Ledger.
– Eric Kumah, a 6’2″, 205-pound wide receiver out of Forest Park (Woodbridge, VA). Kumah boasts a handful of FBS offers, including Boston College, Maryland, Tennessee and Virginia.
– Woodberry Forest (VA) standouts Clark Yarbrough and Lindell Stone made return visits to UVa. Yarbrough, an offensive tackle, and Stone, a quarterback, were also in attendance for UVa’s win over Louisville.
The Cavaliers have offered both prospects. EDGE subscribers can read this article on Stone from a few weeks ago. I hope to have more with Clark soon.
