LB Wingo-Reeves makes the swap
Two-star outside linebacker Connor Wingo-Reeves (Richmond, Va./Monacan) changed his commitment Sunday from the Owls to the Cavs, according to multiple reports. He's slated to make an official visit to Charlottesville, Va. next weekend.
Wing0-Reeves confirmed the news with a few Twitter posts on his handle @CwingoR40, "After talking it over with my family I have decided to decommit from Temple University and accept a scholarship to play at UVA Go Hoos!... Feels good to be a Hoo #WaHooWa"
Navy, Temple and William & Mary also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-3, 226-pound senior. Boston College, East Carolina, Maryland and Virginia Tech showed interest.
ESPN states in his evaluation: "Wingo-Reeves is an aggressive run stopper off the edges but needs to improve his sideline to sideline range... will need some time and most likely a red shirt year if he is to compete for starting time at the BCS level of play."
Virginia has 19 players on board for 2013.
