Here are quotes from my initial EDGE article following Hardy's commitment

That's correct. UVA is recruiting him as a safety. Coach Howell began the recruitment and new safeties coach Shane Hunter has since taken over ...

“My first relationship was with Coach Howell because when they offered he was the safeties coach,” Hardy recalled. “I think in February they made [coaching changes], and I got to know [former inside linebackers coach turned safeties coach Shane] Hunter. I did a couple of Zooms with him. The biggest call for me was when I talked to Coach Hunter about a week before I committed. It was less about football and more about life. That was a helpful conversation. It was cool to see a different side of him. That conversation really changed my mind to man, I love everything I’m hearing about this school.”

Hardy on learning about the role he will play at UVA from Hunter and current safety Joey Blount ...

“Joey and then the coaches explained how the defense revolves around the safeties,” Hardy said. “They explained the coverages and how blitzes revolve around the safeties. They went through plays and schemes. They have the safeties do everything, from coverage to blitzes.”
