2012 Virginia Football Recruiting Ranking: Cavaliers Climb Towards Top 25

National Signing Day isn't typically a very exciting time of year for Virginia Cavalier fans, but thanks to Mike London and the rest of his staff, the Cavaliers are starting to get some national attention in recruiting. The Cavaliers had a second-straight strong class, one which nearly ranked in the top-25 Nation-wide.

The guys over at Scout have the 26 commitments the Cavaliers received ranked as the 28th best class in the Nation. Rivals has Virginia ranked as the fourth best recruiting class in the ACC for 2012. The gem of this class is Eli Harold, a five-star on Scout and a four-star on Rivals, that helps bring this class up a few rankings.

Virginia Football Recruiting: Top 25 Class Possible For Wahoos

For the second-consecutive year, the Virginia Cavaliers have given the Virginia Tech Hokies a run for their money in the recruiting game, especially when it comes to in-state recruits.

The Cavaliers have commitments from 13 in-state players, including 10 from southeastern Virginia, compared to Tech's 15 in-state commitments.

There are still a few key in-state recruits up for grabs, including Clover Hill's Joel Caleb, who is choosing between UVA, VT and Ohio State. He is considered one of the top recruits in the Richmond area.

Some of the other major gets include Virginia Beach Ocean Lakes DE Eli Harold, Clifton Centreville DE Ken Ekenem and Norfolk Christian Academy LB Kwontie Moore. Defensively, the Hoos are building a solid foundation.

Virginia Tech might rank higher than Virginia in recruiting this year, but the two programs have managed to basically shut down the state from outsiders. It's officially an even race for recruits and it's only going to get more heated.
