Haverford, Pa. lineman Will Barker has drawn interest from recruiters for both football and lacrosse. However he plans to play football in college and recently decided he would play that sport for Virginia. Barker committed to the Cavaliers on April 1.
"One of the reasons I committed to Virginia is that I've pretty much been a Cavalier fan my whole life," Barker said. "My aunt and uncle live down there. He's a professor there. I've been down there many times."
"I feel real good about the school and the family atmosphere. I like the coaches and it's a great school."
