July Evaluation Period no. 2 began last night. Rob Harrington of Scout.com spotted UVa head coach Tony Bennett at DeMatha Catholic High School (Hyattsville, MD), host site of the Ty Lawson/Victor Oladipo All-American Camp. Who might Bennett have been there to watch?
– Jagan Mosely, a 6’3″, 200-pound wing out of St. Anthony’s in Jersey City, New Jersey. Coach Bennett gave Mosely, a rising senior, a closer look at last week’s Peach Jam. Mosely, whose parents attended UVa, attended Virginia’s Elite Camp in August of 2013.
– Aaron Thompson, a 6’2″ point guard in the class of 2017. The Paul VI (Fairfax, VA) product attended UVa’s Elite Camp last August and reportedly has received scholarship offers from Georgia Tech, Miami, SMU and others. He came up big for Team Takeover in the quarterfinals of Peach Jam last week.
UVa has offered three point guards in the class of 2017 – Alex Barcello, Matt Coleman and Trae Young. I believe these three prospects are the focus for now, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the staff is keeping tabs on Thompson as well.
– Class of 2017 center Dajour Dickens, a 6’10” prospect out of Hampton. The former Bethel High School standout is transferring to Miller School in Charlottesville for his junior year.
DUKE NOW INTERESTED IN GABRIEL
InsideMDSports.com Editor Jeff Ermann reports that Duke is now expressing interest in 6’10” forward Wenyen Gabriel, whose stock has risen significantly this spring and summer. The Wilbraham & Monson (Wilbraham, N.H.) rising senior boasts scholarship offers from Boston College, Connecticut, Kansas State, Maryland, Miami, Providence, Nebraska, Texas, Vanderbilt and Virginia.
I caught up with Gabriel in May for this recruiting update, which is an EDGE article. While he has not yet taken a trip to Charlottesville, he did express interest in visiting UVa at some point this summer.
“I want to visit there. I know they have a good campus. I’m interested in visiting. We’ll see what happens with the dates and everything,” Gabriel said of UVa on May 25.
Recruiting analysts continue to take notice of the play of UVa commit Kyle Guy. The Lawrence Central (Indianapolis, IN) rising senior combo guard shined yesterday in Day 1 of the Adidas Uprising All-American Camp in New York.

Virginia commit Kyle Guy is having himself a day. Hitting threes, transition buckets, drive and kicks. Tony Bennett got a good one.
