Carney has a favorite

It’s been almost a year since Michael Carney picked up a scholarship offer from Virginia, but since that time, his interest in the Cavaliers has only grown. Hailing from Norfolk, Virginia, the 2016 offensive lineman lives roughly two-and-a-half hours away from UVa’s campus, making the drive to Charlottesville a relatively easy one.

“The last school I visited actually was UVa this past Saturday,” Carney told “It was good. Got to see the first team practice, so it was pretty intense. They got after it. They look like a new team compared to last year.”

Since Virginia offered Carney last April, Rutgers and Old Dominion have also offered the Norfolk Christian standout. Other schools showing interest include Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Kentucky, Michigan, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

At this point, however, one candidate stands out for Carney.
