While most of you were sleeping, we received some good news. New Zealander Taine Murray announced his commitment, becoming the first member of Tony Bennett’s 2021 class. The 6’5 guard chose the Wahoos over finalists Maryland and Stanford. Recruitment As always with overseas recruits, details are hard to come by. We first started hearing of […]

Hoos Make the Cut. Now What?

In the last two days, a pair of Virginia’s top 2021 recruiting targets have named the Hoos as finalists. Paul VI (VA) guard Trevor Keels is down to three, and Silver Creek (IN) forward Trey Kaufman has a top five. If we’re being honest, the schools that survived the cuts aren’t a surprise to anyone […]

High Stakes September

There’s been a distinctive pattern in recruiting under Tony Bennett. Early targets make early decisions, or Virginia fades away. It’s the result of a purposeful strategy.

Fans are antsy, and that’s an understatement. Class of 2021 recruits are flying off the board. 15 of the 247Sports Top 100 committed in July, with several more setting announcement dates.

The status of college sports remains uncertain, but there’s a little bit of normalcy returning as members of the Virginia basketball team filed back on grounds this week. There’s nothing normal about recruiting right now, unfortunately. We’re four months into the dead period with no definite end in sight. It’s unclear if class of 2021 […]

2021 Recruiting Reset

As the corona-induced dead period drags on, it’s an uncomfortable time for Virginia fans. We’re not accustom to prolonged recruiting battles. The worst is usually assumed, because history has taught us to expect it. Without any activity to serve as evidence for reassurance, there are many unknowns. Not only with where things stand now, but […]
