Visitors for this weekend

Virginia will host its two most recent commitments, Maury (Norfolk, VA) OL/DT Jake McGee , on official visits this weekend. The 6-5, 285-pound Lawe had previously considered waiting until after this weekend to choose between Old Dominion and UVa, but he didn’t make it past last Friday. McGee, a VIS first-team all-state selection at quarterback and defensive back, pledged on Tuesday, two days after earning an offer from head coach Mike London.

In terms of uncommitted prospects expected to be in town, one previously scheduled senior apparently will not make the trek. Green Run (Virginia Beach, VA) speedster Dejor Simmons , a 5-8 running back prospect, plans to stick with his commitment to JMU and will not visit this weekend. This is according to Green Run head coach Shawn Wilson in an e-mail exchange this morning. If anything changes, we’ll be sure to follow up.

We’re working to confirm other possible visitors and will post any new info on the EDGE message board throughout the weekend. We have confirmed that an in-state prospect recently offered by the Hoos plans to be in town. We were asked not to reveal the name until after the visit, but we’ll be sure to follow up next week for more.

More from visitors from last weekend

Conner Davis

It was a Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) reunion last weekend for Conner Davis , who was hosted on his official visit by former Wildcats teammate Jake Snyder . Spending time with Snyder and the other Cavaliers players served as the highlight of the weekend for Davis, a 6-5, 270-pound offensive line prospect.

“Hanging out with Jake and all his friends was great. We all hung out together,” Davis said. “They were all different, but at the same time they were goofing around and having a good time. I can’t wait to be up there. Even the older players were introducing themselves and interested in the recruits.”
