The University of Virginia football program extended scholarship offers to a pair of Trinity Catholic (FL) offensive line prospects on Tuesday (January 28).
6’5”, 290-pound center/tackle Jake Slaughter and 6’7”, 270-pound tackle Garner Langlo, juniors at the Ocala (FL) school, took to Twitter to announce the news. UVA has now extended scholarship offers to three Trinity Catholic class of 2021 offensive line prospects. The Hoos offered 6’7”, 275-pound Caleb Johnson this past November.

Slaughter has enjoyed a productive first month of 2020 recruiting-wise, landing scholarship offers from Georgia Tech, West Virginia, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Miami, Syracuse, Utah and now Virginia since January 8. Florida State and Pittsburgh are among the schools that offered previously.
Meanwhile, Langlo has picked up three major D1 offers in a 7-day span from January 22-29. Those offers include Georgia Tech, Utah, and Virginia. Kent State and Troy offered earlier in the standout tackle’s recruitment.
According to 247Sports, Virginia has extended 28 scholarship offers to high school junior offensive line prospects (note this does not include Slaughter). The number of projected scholarship offensive line on Virginia’s 2021 season depth chart currently stands at 16, but the unit is heavy on upperclassmen with seven seniors and four juniors. With than in mind I expect the staff to recruit a significant offensive line class in 2021 (at least three prospects) to help offset projected losses in 2022 and 2023.
Overall, the Cavaliers’ current projected scholarship count for the 2021 season is 67. The number accounts for UVA’s two verbal commitments in the class of 2021 – quarterback/athlete Jay Woolfolk and running back Amaad Foston – as well as class of 2020 defensive line pledge Lorenz Terry.
