Altavista's Thornhill Verbally Commits to UVa

Altavista junior quarterback and defensive back Juan Thornhill has verbally committed to Virginia. He is UVa's first commitment for the class of 2015.

UVa offered a scholarship to Thornhill "a couple of weeks ago" according to Altavista head coach Mike Scharnus.

Thornhill, who played point guard for the 2013 state championship basketball team as a sophomore, was recruited as an athlete and will most likely play defense for the Cavaliers.

Thornhill is one of the ten finalists for the ABC 13 Football Friday Player of the Year Award. To vote for him and/or see the other nine finalists please CLICK HERE.
