Less than four weeks remain until National Signing Day. UVa filled most of its class of 2013 by the end of the summer, but there has been plenty of activity of late. This weekend will certainly be busy, as the Virginia football program is expecting all of its class of 2013 commitments in town for official visits.

We begin this Sabre Scoop with a recap of Sunday’s recruiting action, which included an in-state commitment.

Recent Developments

Around 12:30 on Sunday afternoon, Virginia head coach Mike London called Monacan (Richmond, VA) senior Connor Wingo-Reeves and offered him a scholarship. It didn’t take long for the 6’3″, 220-pound prospect to accept, and he is now a member of UVa’s 2013 recruiting class. Wingo-Reeves, a potential linebacker/fullback for the Cavaliers, originally committed to Temple and also had an offer from Navy.

Later in the day, multiple sources reported that former Virginia commit Hipolito Corporan had committed to Utah, the school he took an official visit to over the weekend. The Westside (Houston, TX) cornerback originally committed to UVa back in May but expressed concern over the recent coaching staff shake-up.

With Wingo-Reeves now on board and Corporan headed elsewhere, UVa now has 17 high school seniors committed in the class of 2013. Another prospect, official release Monday afternoon. Fans will get to see Smith, who will don no. 52, in action this spring.

In addition to the 17 high school seniors, postgraduate prospects Max Valles also are committed to sign with the Cavaliers on February 6. Both players signed with Virginia last February but did not gain admission. Valles, a 6’5″, 220-pound defensive end/tight end, is solidly in UVa’s camp. Chavis’ commitment is in question, as he plans to take an official to Virginia Tech after this weekend’s trip to UVa.

On the target front, West Catholic (Philadelphia, PA) offensive tackle Jaryd Jones-Smith will announce his college choice at a press conference on Tuesday at 2:45 p.m. The 6’7″, 300-pound senior will decide between Pittsburgh and Virginia.

Jones-Smith reportedly took an unofficial visit to Pittsburgh this past
