UVa Football Adds 15th Verbal Commit

Like the summer temperatures, recruiting season is heating up for the Virginia football program.

On Tuesday the Cavaliers received a verbal commitment from offensive lineman Brad Henson, a rising senior at Monsignor Donovan in Toms River, NJ. Henson is the 15th player to commit to Virginia's recruiting class of 2013, and the sixth in the past two weeks.

Rivals.com was the first to report Henson's verbal on Tuesday. The recruiting website regards the 6-5, 275-lb. Henson as a three-star lineman. Three other recruiting sites -- 247Sports.com, Scout.com, and ESPN.com -- all rate Henson as a three-star offensive guard prospect.

Henson picked the Cavaliers over programs like Duke, Connecticut, and Boston College.

Henson is the second offensive lineman to commit to the Cavaliers in as many days. On Monday, Jack McDonald chose Virginia over offers that included Boston College, Duke, Maryland, and Connecticut. The 6-5, 275-lb. McDonald is also regarded as a three-star prospect by recruiting sites.

Other prospects picking Virginia in the past two weeks include four-star defensive back Kirk Garner; four-star defensive tackle Donta Wilkins; three-star wide receiver Keeon Johnson; and three-star defensive lineman Jack English.
