In what has become a yearly recruiting event, the Elite Prospect Day in June has been successful for the University of Virginia football program. Last year, Coach London scored big with commitments from defensive ends Vince Croce and Marco Jones . This year’s event takes place on Sunday, June 5, and we have a list of those prospects we have confirmed and those who we hear may be in attendance.

Tyrell is focused on the classroom right now and a decision doesn’t seem likely to come any time soon.
