While the Virginia football program has been busy reeling in commitments in the class of 2019, the Hoos have also begun to build up the class of 2020. Cornerback Antonio Webb Jr. verbally committed to UVA last month, becoming the first rising junior to commit to the Hoos. Wednesday night (July 4), Virginia scored class of 2020 pledge No. 2 when defensive tackle prospect Jahmeer Carter announced his college choice.

Carter is a 6’3”, 295-pound rising junior out Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, Maryland. Rivals ranks him as a 3-star offensive guard, but Virginia is recruiting him to play on the defensive line. The Capital Gazette named the standout prospect to its All-County defensive team last season. Carter totaled 22 tackles with three tackles for loss and two sacks at defensive tackle while also playing full-time on offense, where he saw time at offensive guard and offensive tackle.
Carter chose the Cavaliers over scholarship offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Rutgers, and Temple. Virginia’s scholarship offer came in June of 2017, following Carter’s freshman year.
Carter’s commitment means Virginia has landed 12 recruits – 10 from the class of 2019 and two from the class of 2020 – in the months of June and July.
