Recruiting Rundown

Normally, August is sort of the quiet time between storms in recruiting. Not so much this year. With it becoming more evident that prospects won’t be allowed to visit campuses this Fall, everything seems to be moving at once. Commitments are happening more frequently. Hopefully one of those will go our way soon. In the […]

Recruiting Rundown Aug 9th

It’s been a long dry summer already on the recruiting front. Class of 2021 prospects are announcing their commitments, 51 of 247Sports Top 100 are now off the board. Virginia fans are wondering when we’ll get our first. I don’t have the answer obviously. But I’ve noticed over the years that when we’re almost at […]

Recruiting Rundown Aug 1st

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.

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 […]

Recruiting Isn’t What it Used To Be

I’ve been thinking a lot about all the changes in recruiting I’ve noticed over the years. Not that I’ve been around doing this all that long. I started the HGN account on twitter four years ago, and lurked for several years before that. Since there’s not much else going on thanks to the COVID-19 dead […]
