Virginia went the international route for a big man in the 2014 class. On Wednesday, New Zealand native Jack Salt committed to Tony Bennett and his staff.

Salt, who stands 6-foot-10, attends North Shore (Auckland) Westlake Boy High. He debuted in the national league with the NZ Breakers averaging 8.6 points and 5.4 rebounds a game.

Salt also played for the New Zealand U20 team at the Australian state championship.

Salt is the third 2014 recruit to commit to UVa. Salt joins a class that also consists of four-star recruit B.J. Stith and three-star power forward Isaiah Wilkins.
