Ever since he took over the Virginia football program, head coach Mike London has strived to attract the top talent in the state to Charlottesville in an effort to rebuild the team.
He worked to build relationships with the younger talent that would eventually rank among the top prospects in Virginia. Chief among the heralded youngsters was Andrew Brown, a five-star defensive tackle from Chesapeake. London developed a strong bond with Brown and worked to sell his vision of the program to the promising young defensive lineman. The hard work that London put in on the recruiting trail paid off as Brown announced on Saturday afternoon that he will play his college football in Charlottesville.
