All 19 recruits committed to the University of Virginia’s 2013 class were in Charlottesville this past weekend on official visits. A few targets, including one who now has an offer from UVa, visited as well.

The big news was not of the positive variety, however, as star recruit underage drinking charge.

Based on my conversations with Mizzell and everything else I’ve heard, I believe he is a quality kid and a good student. I’d be surprised if UVa pulled his offer (a report by the Richmond Times-Dispatch indicates it won’t), and from his end he has been rock solid in the commitment he made last August. I believe he will sign with the Hoos.

In what is good news for the Cavaliers, Fork Union (VA) safety Malcolm Cook took to Twitter to proclaim that he has firmed up his commitment with the Cavaliers. The 6’1″, 200-pound senior had official visits scheduled with Virginia Tech (Jan. 25) and Wake Forest (Feb. 1), but it appears he will not make those trips.

“Closing da door on all recruitments I’m done me and jake gone be rolling LOL# Don’t tell nobody## UVA Wahooo’s,” Cook wrote.

The Blue Devils senior standout was relatively unknown on the recruiting front before he turned in a big-time 2012 season, racking up double-digit interceptions. UVa had offered last July and secured his commitment. Cook’s stock soared after the big senior season, and he now is considered one of UVa’s top prospects overall in this class.

On the target front, the Cavaliers have offered a scholarship to Alpharetta High School (GA) senior offensive tackle
