Virginia is flat out loaded this year. The top five players in Virginia can play anywhere in the country. Hand is ranked by most recruiting services as the top player or defensive end in the country. Blanding is a huge muscular safety with serious ball skills. Brown is that rare body type that could project as a SDE or DT at the next level. Then you have two tall quarterbacks (Henderson & Speight) who can whip it all over the field. Look for every major DI school in the country to visit the 757 this spring. The Virginia state rankings will be updated at least two more times before signing day.
