Change at the top does not necessarily mean change in the minds of several Cavalier football recruits. Things are looking positive in the early going that Virginia will be able to hang on to at least some of their big name commits.
K.P. Parks is North Carolina's all time leading rusher and one of 17 recruits for the 2010 season. Parks attends West Rowan High School in Mount Ulla, NC, and told the Salisbury Post that he still plans on honoring his commitment to Virginia.
"I'm still solid in my commitment," Parks said in the article. "They're going to honor my scholarship, and they're still showing me love. So I'm good."
Parks also indicated in that same article that a good number of those in his recruiting class would follow his lead.
"I saw a lot of commitments there, and I asked them if they were good," Parks said in that same Salisbury Post article. "They said they're still solid with their commitments."
Three star recruit E.J. Scott is one of those recruits that Parks is referring to. Scott also says that the change has not dampened his excitement about joining the Cavaliers. This according to Scout.com. Scott is a wide receiver from Good Counsel High School in Olney, Maryland.
Morgan Moses is one of the recruits still in question. The offensive lineman committed to Virginia last year, but his interest in the Cavaliers seems to be falling since rumblings of Al Groh's firing began to surface. Moses has opened things back up and has an official visit at South Carolina this coming weekend, according to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal. Craig Littlepage visited with Moses this morning in hopes of keeping him committed to Virginia. Moses is a 6'7" 347 pound lineman and is a four star recruit.
