Darius Jennings Commits To Virginia In Huge Coup For Mike London

Darius Jennings, a four-star prospect being recruited as an "athlete," has signed with the Virginia Cavaliers, spurning multiple top programs including Penn State, Georgia Tech, Iowa, Michigan, and Oregon. Jennings starred at the Gilman School in Baltimore, and is regarded as a top high school football recruit, ranked fourth in the state by Rivals.

SB Nation's Streaking The Lawn is understandably smitten:

Jennings is getting recruited most likely as a wide receiver for Virginia, though by all accounts, he has the versatility and athleticism to play at pretty much any skill position. He's got good speed, but more importantly, he's elusive, moves smoothly, and has impressive jump-cut and burst ability. He was named the 2010 Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year and was a consensus all-state selection. In 2009, he rushed for over 2,000 yards and threw for 733 yards - a total of 35 touchdowns. He's quick off the line and demonstrates great body control. At QB, he's more of a running QB than a passing QB, though he could certainly qualify as a dual threat.
