Virginia is hot on the recruiting trail early this year and it appears they aren't going to slow down soon. After receiving a commitment from a New Jersey player yesterday, the Cavaliers got another one today from a player closer to home.
Lexington (VA) Rockbridge County defensive end/tight end Aaron Clark became the tenth commitment in Virginia's 2005 class according to Rockbridge Head Coach Billy Mills.
"Aaron Clark committed to the University of Virginia this morning to Coach Danny Rocco," said Mills of the 6-foot-6, 230-pound two-way standout who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.65 seconds.
Clark's only scholarship offer was from Virginia but he was receiving interest from Virginia Tech, Maryland, West Virginia, Notre Dame, Nebraska, and Michigan.
Clark is being recruited for a number of positions by the Cavaliers. He currently plays tight end and defensive end for Rockbridge. Virginia is recruiting Clark for those two positions as well as outside linebacker.
Last season on defense, Clark racked up 69 tackles, seven sacks, nine quarterback hurries, three forced fumbles, an interception, and 24 tackles for a loss. Clark is standout student as well boasting a 2.86 GPA and 1,100 on the SAT.
