Yesterday, the University of Virginia received a verbal commitment from top target Mikell Simpson . The 6-1, 185-pound Simpson is a 4-star tailback recruit who has been timed at 4.38 in the 40-yard dash. Versatile, he is an exceptional rusher and receiver out of the backfield.

As a senior, Simpson rushed for 456 yards and 8 touchdowns in just 4 1/2 games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. As a junior, he rushed 88 times for 862 yards and 21 touchdowns. Academically, he has already qualified and been accepted by admissions. He plans to enroll at UVa for the first summer session.

TheSabre.com caught up with Mikell last night to discuss his recruitment, his commitment and what he looks forward to the most at the University of Virginia.
