Sabre Scoop: Valles Solid To UVa

Valles Headed To UVa After All

Max Valles is solidly committed to the University of Virginia and will finish out a full academic year at Fork Union Military Academy (VA), Max’s father, Paul, wrote in an e-mail to Editor Kris Wright on Wednesday.

FUMA postgrad coach John Shuman said on Thursday of last week that Valles and Tyrell Chavis had de-committed from UVa and were re-evaluating their college options. Both players signed with the Hoos in February of 2012 but did not gain admission. Subsequently, they enrolled at Fork Union as postgraduates.

On Saturday, Valles tweeted that he was solid in his original decision.
