Folks, don't believe all the hype. The only thing reported that is really telling is the list of schools that offered scholarships. Check it out, none of these kids was offered by a top 10 school, and only one was looked at by a top 20 school. These guys ain't the gems the stats paint.

Why so negative "Hype'?These kids chose UVA over some schools with more successful football programs than Virginia.I think it says a lot about where they see UVA's program going.
I've seen Anthony Harris play,and he is a fantastic athlete.I for one am excited about him going to play for the Hoos and I'm excited for what I believe Mike London can do for the program.Too bad you're not...probably a closet Hokie fan!

The negativity comes from years of reading media hype about recruits, both football and basketball, who turn out to be scrubs. Case and point, the "Young Guns" of the 2010 men's basketball team. Check out the stats. Must have been cap guns they were shooting. I've seen these recruits play too. The Stonebridge kid got beat on almost every play of the championship game by smaller, faster kids. He's got potential, but very raw right now. The bottom line is the new football recruits are not game changers, and folks shouldn't get too excited yet. Granted, there are coaches out there who can turn kids around, and I hope London turns out to be one of them, but saying recruiting is "on a roll" is a bit of an overstatement.

We're just poking a little fun Hype.We're ALL frustrated with the football program over the last few years.It's been hard to be a Virginia fan,they've given us little to cheer about for years.Still,I'm looking to the future with optimism and confidence that London can do with our kids what he managed to do with "lesser athletes"at University of Richmond.It's not going to happen overnight,or in one season but I believe he can do it.Success will bring more success in recruiting.
