And, how players develop over 3,4,5 yrs. This is about player development…

the type of approach that fits a school like UVA. In addition, many of the recruiting services higher ranked prospects are not attracted to UVA’s academic culture, as well as do not trust we can contend for a playoff level based upon the limited history of upper tier success.

Most often, we need to find kids like Olamide Zaccheaus, Jordan Mack, Bryce Hall, Charles Snowden Joey Blount, Mandy Alonso, Joe Reed, Noah Taylor, Nick Jackson, Ryan Swoboda, Lavel Davis, Elijah Gaines, Jacob Rodriguez, Amaad Foston, Langston Long, James Jackson, etc. — excellent athletes with a high ceiling and equally high aptitude. Most of these kids came out of either private schools that too often are under-valued, or small public schools that overlook them. This is UVA’s “sweet spot.”

Then, there are kids like Bryce Perkins, Olu Oluwatimi, Tony Poljan, Keytaon Thompson, Jalani Woods, Anthony Johnson, etc., who transfer into UVA with excellent upside to take advantage of an opportunity not fully afforded to them previously.

This is how the program will succeed and grow. Then we sprinkle in a few higher ranked recruiting services kids like Dakota Twitty, Logan Taylor, Bryce Carter, Josh McCarron, and Andrew Gentry.

Bronco has figured out how to successfully recruit for the type of prospect that fits his earned, not given profile, and most importantly, those who match up to UVA’s academic culture. We are NOT Clemson, VPI or UNC. This staff must recruit prospects that “fit” who we are as a program and institution. This staff has adeptly got it just right.
