'Hoos Trending: UVA on Commitment Watch

Virginia football is set to host plenty of visitors on Saturday. HooNation takes a look at the visitor list on 'Hoos Trending. Are the Cavaliers on commitment watch?

Virginia football is returning home, which means the Cavaliers are set for another weekend packed with visits. HooNation told you about the two official visitors set to come to Grounds this weekend on Thursday, but the Cavs are expecting plenty more recruiting targets on Saturday. 'Hoos Trending breaks down the visitor list. 


Latest: As we told you on Thursday Osiris Crutchfield is set to visit this Saturday with his brother, Noah. Crutchfield picked up his first two offers this fall from VMI and Virginia. The in-state defensive tackle could realistically commit this weekend, and thats why we are under a category 4 commitment watch. 

Crutchfield is the only 2016 target visiting this weekend with an offer, however, the Wahoos are also hosting plenty of younger players. 


Latest: It is still REALLY EARLY for Germane Crowell. the Carver High standout picked up his offer from the Cavaliers fairly recently. He wants to visit UVA, Duke and Virginia Tech after the season. Wake Forest is his only other offer at the moment, but the 2017 standout will likely see his stock increase this spring with schools like Duke showing interest. Crowell is a UVA legacy with his father, German Crowell playing wide receiver and his uncle, Angelo Crowell, playing linebacker. 


Latest: Elijah Conliffe is expected to be among the visitors on Saturday. The four-star 2017 defensive end holds offers from Georgia, NC State, UNC, Virginia and Wake Forest among others. 

Quick Hitters

Other 2017 visitors include: Bridgewater (N.J.) Raritan School offensive tackle Zachary Miseo, 2017 athlete Dazz Newsome from Hampton, Sarasota (Fla.) Cardinal Mooney quarterback Tristan Hellerich, Annapolis (Md.) signal caller Don Giolatt, wide receiver Thomas Martin from hickory High and defensive tackle Alex Wilcon from Jacksonville, Florida. 

In the 2018 class, UVA is set to host Woodberry Forest tight end Kyle Bilodeau, he is teammates with 2017 Cavalier pledge John Kirven. The 'Hoos are also expected to welcome offensive guard Jesse Hanson from Daleville, Virginia, as well as UVA quarterback's Matt Johns' younger brother, Jack Johns. Riverbend offensive tackle Teagan McDonald is also expected to make a trip. He is a 2019 offensive lineman, and one to keep an eye on in the state of Virginia. 

The Commits

Virginia will also host three members of the 2016 class:
