Andrew Brown, who is the top defensive tackle in the Class of 2014, made a verbal commitment to Virginia on Saturday afternoon at a cookout attended by family and friends.
The 6-4, 285-pound consensus five-star defender from Oscar Frommel Smith High School (Chesapeake, VA) is the second-best player in the state of Virginia behind five-star defensive end Da'Shawn Hand.
Brown chose the Cavaliers over Virginia Tech, Alabama and Clemson, and he'll give Mike London and Co. an anchor for their future defensive lines.
The Cavaliers now have nine commits for 2014, and Brown is the second five-star in-state recruit. Safety Quin Blanding is also heading to Charlottesville.
