The UVa men's basketball team has gotten a verbal commitment from 6-foot-10 forward Jay Huff from Voyager Academy in Durham, NC. He is rated a 4-star recruit by 247Sports.
Huff ultimately chose UVa over Duke. Huff averaged 16 points and 8 rebounds last season and made 27 three-pointers. He is regarded as long, lanky, good-shooting big man who can stretch defenses.
Huff is rated as the 54th best prospect in the country according to 247sports.
Huff becomes the fourth member of Virginia's 2016 class joining 4-star recruits Kyle Guy, Ty Jerome and Sacha Killeya-Jones.
