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.
