The University of Virginia football program will have plenty of competition at the tailback position in 2021. Wayne Taulapapa, the primary starter each of the past two seasons, returns as the most experienced performer in UVA’s system. Former Harvard standout Devin Darrington arrives on Grounds this summer as a graduate transfer. Ronnie Walker Jr returns for his second year in the program after transferring in from Indiana, and Mike Hollins is back for what will after opting out in the 2020 campaign. In addition to those four, Virginia welcomed first-year Amaad Foston to the program this month; the Georgia native is one of six midyear enrollees for the Cavaliers.

Foston, who measures in at 6’0”, 210 pounds, received high praise from Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall during Mendenhall’s Early Signing Period press conference this past December.
