Virginia adds LB depth with newest commitment


Virginia continued to bolster its linebacking corps for the foreseeable future when Javar Garrett pledged to the Cavaliers.

Garrett, a 6-2, 205-pound native of Penns Grove, N.J., chose UVA over Indiana, NC State, Temple, Rutgers and Vanderbilt.

Two of UVA’s three commitments so far in the 2018 are linebackers, with fellow 3-star Noah Taylor out of Gaithersburg, Md., joining Garrett.

Considering that just two of the 12 linebackers on the roster will be seniors next season — and that’s not even throwing in four incoming freshmen at that position — the Cavaliers can now focus their attention on other areas defensively.
