College football recruiting can change by the hour, and since publishing my latest Locker Room, it has changed again in just 24 hours, and this time the boost belongs to the Wahoos. Virginia just landed its first 4-star commitment for the 2021 recruiting class.
Josh McCarron, a 6-4, 215 outside linebacker from Washington has become for the time being at least the highest rated recruit for UVa. Early in the process teams can make dramatic jumps in the recruiting ratings and this is the perfect example of that. UVa has moved up 11 spots overnight from the 39th rated class to number 28.
McCarron was also offered by state rival Virginia Tech, plus Boise State, California, Northwestern, Washington State, Air Force, Colorado, and Utah. McCarron’s signing however did not effect the Hokies ranking as Tech is still considered to have the 23 rated class in the country.
The Cavaliers also added a transfer running back to the fold last weekend, Indiana transfer Ronnie Walker who has two years of eligibility remaining. He was a sometimes starter for the Hoosiers last season. He is regarded as a back that is equally as good at catching the football as he is running with it.
