Virginia has taken a big step toward improving its overall recruiting rankings this season, according to the Associated Press.
The Cavaliers have moved from seventh in 2019 to second this season.
But the big-picture picture, the rankings are no longer the focus.
“It’s not about the ranking,” head coach Mike London said of the recruiting rankings, according with The Washington Post.
“What matters is the team’s performance and how they are going to be recruiting the next generation of Virginia football players.
That’s what matters to us.”
The Cavaliers also had a jump from 10th in 2019, which included a recruiting class ranked No. 1 nationally in 2019.
The 2017 class also led the nation in 247Sports Composite rankings.
Now that Virginia is ranked in the top 10, the Cavaliers can expect even more interest in the state and the nation.
In 2019, Virginia was ranked seventh in the nation by 247Sports.
