"They were on him very early," said Allman. "They liked him a lot because he fits their offensive and defensive schemes. He's going to get a lot of offers between now and Signing Day, but he's pretty happy with his decision."
Allman things Virginia is getting a great prospect.
"He's so tall and has room to fill out," he said. "He's also a weight room guy -- he loves the weight room. He will get much, much bigger as he gets older."
