6-5, 270-pound Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) offensive lineman Devin Bolling attended Virginia’s regular season opener on Saturday, making the trip along with teammates Logan Thomas and Zack McCray . He discussed the experience as well as whether or not he knows more about his standing in terms of landing an offer from the Cavaliers.

With respect to Virginia’s loss to Southern Cal, the talented offensive lineman came away impressed by the game atmosphere.

“It was nice and live, even when they were losing,” Bolling recalled. “The crowd was still roaring even when they were down.”

Of the game itself, Bolling said, “I think maybe it can help UVa. It was a good eye-opener.”

Predictably, the mood in Virginia’s locker room was one of disappointment following the 52-7 defeat. Bolling was able to catch up with Virginia’s coaches, though, to discuss his standing with the Cavaliers. At this point, no offer has been extended.

“They want me to send in film. They said I look good and stuff, but they want to see my film,” Bolling said. “It’ll all base on the film. They didn’t get to do too much evaluation of me at camp since I was hurt.”

Brookville has opened up the 2008 season with two straight wins, the second of which came last Friday night over Tunstall. Bolling assessed his play in the 30-7 win last week.

“I played a lot better,” said Bolling, Brookville’s starting left offensive tackle. “I did a lot better on pass-blocking and I improved my game on run-blocking. And our team is getting better. We’re starting to come together.”

Bolling plans to send video from Brookville’s first three
