The Virginia football team has lost seven games in a row, but there is some good news for UVa along the recruiting trail, as Donovan Dowling has given a verbal commitment to the Cavaliers.
Dowling is a 6-foot-1, 208 pound receiver/defensive back out of Varina High School.
The Blue Devils senior also had offers from schools like James Madison, Delaware, and Richmond.
The Cavaliers now have a dozen players committed for the Class of 2014.
