2022 College Recruiting - 7 Commits
Last Player Grade Published on Jan. 28, 2022
OT McKale Boley (Hattiesburg, MS) commits to Virginia View Class
The tackle market is rather bare going into the final week, but Boley (6-5, 285) has some upside that's worth investing in. He moves well and is somewhat light on his feet. Boley is still growing into his body and will continue to fill out in a college strength program. He is still raw to the position, but Boley has played on the defensive line and has the pedigree from his father, Michael, who was a 9-year NFL pro. I think Boley could contribute after a redshirt year.
McKale Boley's Player Grade: C
OL Noah DeMeritt (Kingsland, GA) commits to Virginia View Class
DeMeritt (6-5, 350) is a massive offensive line prospect. He has a strong base and plants his feet to where he is not easy to move off his spot. DeMeritt is a mauler and plays for a good high school program that emphasizes physical play. He will try to knock a defensive lineman or linebacker out if they are in his sight line. Quickness is a major issue for DeMeritt, both downhill and laterally, and that's probably why he's slipped a bit.
Noah DeMeritt's Player Grade: C
K Will Bettridge (Miami, FL) commits to Virginia View Class
Bettridge (5-10, 160) is the sixth-rated kicker in the nation according to Kohl's kicking website. The site goes on to say that Bettridge "development athletically has made him competitive on field goals and kickoffs with the best in the country. He is a clean ball striker who has the mental make-up to do well at the next level."
Will Bettridge's Player Grade: B-
OT Brody Meadows (Bluefield, VA) commits to Virginia View Class
Meadows (6-6, 278) and Virginia have been linked together for a few years now, and his commitment was made after a recent official visit. He's big and nasty with a large wide frame and a base that's perfect for an offensive tackle. Meadows is a tough blocker, the kind of a bully who will put a defensive lineman on the ground and then go searching for another victim. Meadows must get more athletic and improve his footwork. He will also need to improve his bend. But Meadows is a solid line prospect who could develop into a multi-year starter.
Brody Meadows' Player Grade: B-
QB Davis Lane (Lynchburg, VA) commits to Virginia View Class
Here's a classic case of how the camp process works to help recruiting. Lane (6-2, 185) had some Ivy League offers and was slotted as an FCS prospect coming out of spring ball. Virginia was interested and wanted to bring him in for a workout, which are allowed now, and made an offer to him based on the good workout. A couple of days later, Lane made the verbal commitment. Speed is the key here for Lane; he runs a 100-meter right around 11 seconds and is going to be a player who does everything on the move. As a passer, Lane needs some work, but he'll have his senior year and plenty of time on campus with the Virginia coaches to get work in.
Davis Lane's Player Grade: C
WR Dakota Twitty (Mooresboro, NC) commits to Virginia View Class
The first thing that stands out about Twitty (6-5, 212) is his size. He looks like a tight end or a defensive end, and it's no surprise that he has played on both sides of the ball in high school. But it appears that the offense will be his calling in college and Twitty is going to be a big-body receiver. The size and length that Twitty offers will force teams to put linebackers or safeties on him if they don't have a big cornerback who can match up. Twitty is a big target with a good hands. His speed is ok, and he will need to improve his long speed to stretch defenses out. Twitty, however, looks like a natural mismatch and might be Virginia's best wide receiver prospect since Herman Moore.
Dakota Twitty's Player Grade: B+
LB Trey McDonald (Chattanooga, TN) commits to Virginia View Class
McDonald (6-4, 225) is an intriguing, if incomplete, prospect. His size is great; he's the ideal size to be an outside linebacker, and I think he has the potential to grow into a defensive end. His game speed is a big question mark to me. I don't know that he can get up the field quick enough in Power Five football.
McDonald has very good instincts and plays a smart game. He can read and react well and shows some ability in sideline-to-sideline pursuit. If McDonald is assigned to a space and plays within that area, I think he'll be fine. When he's forced to play a little deeper coverage or move around laterally, that's where he could get in trouble.
