Darius Jennings , the Maryland 2010 Gatorade Player of the Year, has picked Virginia over Ohio State and Wake Forest . Considered a multi-talented athlete, Jennings was offered the chance to play quarterback at Wake Forest (his high school position), but elected to stick with Mike London in Charlottesville.

Virginia's recruiting class desperately needed at least one big name today, with Richmond linebacker Curtis Grant still keeping Virginia in the running. But going up against North Carolina , Florida , and Ohio State make landing both seem like a long shot. This was a huge grab for Mike London and the Cavaliers staff.
