Virginia gets on the board for 2014

Junior defensive lineman Chris Nelson (Lakeland, Fla./Victory Christian) has become Virginia's first Class of 2014 commitment, according to multiple reports.

The Cavs are Nelson's only offer. 247Sports reports that programs such as LSU, Miami-FL and Florida International were also recruiting the 6-foot-2, 280-pound prospect.

Nelson was extremely productive as a sophomore recording 150 total tackles and 10 sacks.

Virginia does not have any players from Florida committed for 2013 but it did sign Demeitre Brim out of Victory Christian in 2012.
