CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Mike London worried that an offseason of upheaval could cause Virginia to lose recruits.
He needn’t have worried.
Despite changes that brought in five new coaches since the season ended, the Cavaliers signed 21 players Wednesday, including two late surprises on the offensive line. They also held onto their 5-star running back, Taquan Mizzell of Virginia Beach, who first committed in August.
The Cavaliers’ class grew early Wednesday when Eric Tetlow of Richmond, who had once committed to Wake Forest, instead signed with Virginia. And it grew again in the morning when George Adeosun, a late-blooming offensive lineman from Alpharetta, Ga., picked Virginia over several other BCS suitors.
The class includes 10 players from Virginia.
