Back in April, the Virginia football program reeled in four class of 2018 commitments in three days. The Cavaliers are at it again, having received four rising senior commits in the past two days.
Placekicker Hunter Pearson and wide receiver Ugo Obasi gave pledges to head coach Bronco Mendenhall yesterday, June 23. This morning, two more prospects — offensive lineman Martin Weisz and offensive lineman Derek Devine — announced their intentions to attend the University of Virginia.

At 6’6”, 305 pounds, Weisz is rated a 3-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com and is currently ranked no. 15 on the Palm Beach Post’s Big Board. He boasted double-digit scholarship offers, including a recent one from Kentucky, before choosing the Cavaliers.
The 6’6”, 275-pound Devine, a product of North Allegheny (Wexford, PA), considered an offer from Bowling Green before casting his lot with Virginia, which was the first and only Power 5 Conference school to offer a scholarship. Devine started at right tackle last season as a junior, playing alongside 4-star recruit and now Notre Dame freshman Joshua Lugg.
Highlights of Weisz and Devine are below and are followed by a full rundown of Virginia’s 2018 Class, which now includes 13 commits. Five of those commits are projected to play on the offensive line.
