Here's a look at three players at Virginia with a chance to make a name for themselves this fall: (Yes, Marc Verica is expected to be the starting quarterback, but these two guys are one play or one injury away from taking over, and with so many roles being unknown at Virginia right now, these were the safest picks.)
OG Morgan Moses: He signed his letter of intent in 2009, but spent last year playing at Fork Union Military Academy. He was rated the No. 6 offensive tackle in his class by ESPN.com and has a reputation as a strong run blocker. He's expected to see immediate playing time.
QB Ross Metheny: He redshirted last year and was named the coaches' scout team player of the week against Clemson and Duke. The lefty from Stephens City, Va., was rated the No. 95 quarterback in his class by ESPN.com. He passed for a school-record 7,237 yards and 69 career touchdown passes.
QB Michael Strauss: He was first-year coach Mike London's first commitment and came to Charlottesville from the Miami area where he was the Class 2AAll-State first-team selection in 2009 and 2008. He was rated the No. 74 quarterback in his class by ESPN.com and shares the distinction with Miami quarterback Jacory Harris as the only two players in Dade County to throw for more than 3,000 yards in a single season. He got a head start this spring as an early enrollee.
