Meet UVA football's 2025 recruiting class

 


And lo and behold, the Virginia Cavaliers football program has momentum. In addition to the massive facility upgrades, Tony Elliott has stepped up his game on the recruiting front, with 12 2025 commitments so far, which ranks 30th in the nation according to 247Sports Composite. The program hasn't produced a class of this caliber in more than a decade.

Let's talk about this new set of Virginia football commitments:

Isaiah Robinson, wide receiver/athlete

Robinson, a valued local product from Richmond, VA, was the first member of the class. The 63 athlete, who will most likely play wide receiver, is rated as a four-star on Rivals and a high three-star per the 247 Composite.

As his size indicates, Robinson is primarily a vertical threat who can win 50-50 balls and has a good release beyond the line of scrimmage. He has also shown his ability to play in the open field, which makes me excited about what he can become as his route tree expands at UVA.

Cole Geer, quarterback

Geer is a quarterback at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, the same school as 2024 Virginia wide receiver Triston Ward.

Geer leads the way in intangibles, based on the way he patiently reads the pitch and understands optimal ball placement. He's certainly quite an athlete as well. The competitive jump will be steep, but Geer shows every indication he can succeed at the power conference level.

Jon Adair, OL

Elliott went to Nashville, Tennessee to land the 6-foot-4, 265-pound offensive lineman. Adair was a center in his sophomore season when he committed, but has since primarily moved to tackle, where he projects at the college level.

He should fit well into UVA's zone-blocking scheme as someone who can get into open space on the second level. Adair's pass protection is a bit raw, but that's not the end of the world right now.

Grayson Reid, OL

Reid, another fairly local guy, is the consensus number one offensive lineman for 2025 in Washington DC. He projects as a guard at the next level and is also a guy with notable mobility (I'm sensing a theme here). Check out Reid's Hat for yourself, it's full of clips of him absolutely crushing his competition. It's a nice watch.

Christopher Spence, D.B

Spence is also a four-star on the border and a top Virginia kid with an impressive list of offerings. He is arguably the best athlete in this class, showing impressive film on both sides of the ball. At 63, Spence profiles as one of those tall John Rudzinski defensive backs who thrives in zone coverage and open-field tackles.

Justin Zames, TE

Virginia, an under-recruited tight end from Florida, was Zame's only power conference offer despite his solid three-star rating. However, Des Kitchings and the staff were all over him and gave him his first FBS offer.

The 64, 235 pounder has been involved in some heavy offense in high school, so his blocking stood out the most on his film. He is particularly agile with a strong upper body and enough space to further fill out his frame.

Isaiah Reese, LB

Tony Elliott went to New England again and picked up the best player in the state of New Hampshire. Reese has a similar linebacker profile to Kamren Robinson, although it's difficult to compare the two given the difference in competition.

But I'll tell you what: watch any of Reese's film against fellow New Hampshire high schools and you'll think he's the second coming of Patrick Willis. And hey, maybe he is; just take it with a grain of salt.

Willem Thurber, TE

Another kid from Deerfield, Mass., Thurber, will join his high school quarterback Geer in Charlottesville. Of the two tight ends in this class, he has more experience as a vertical receiving threat. Thurbers isn't a crazy athlete in his 65 frame, but is certainly a force to take down with a great catch radius. Think of Tony Poljan.

Justin Rowe, LB

Rowe, originally from Ottawa, made a name for himself playing high school ball in North Carolina. If Spence isn't the best athlete in the class, it's certainly Rowe.

Only an 86 out of 247 Composite, but his potential has hardly been unlocked. The type of player who wanders around the field and makes a few plays from scratch every game. Great instincts, player from sideline to sideline, all those clichés apply. He is officially listed as a linebacker.

Xay Davis, RB/athlete

Another Richmond kid, Davis has what it takes to become a fan favorite. He is primarily a running back, but will play in a variety of spots in the formation and even finished with more receiving yards than rushing yards last season.

Davis is slick in the open field, not necessarily someone who will run you over, but is a home run threat. He's also a guy the offensive staff could get creative with, which is evident in some of his film.

Bjorn Jurgensen, QB

Between Anthony Colandrea and now Jurgensen, Virginia has done well attracting talented quarterbacks from the Sunshine State. To be fair, the duo also have eerily similar playing styles.

Jurgensen functions best on off-script plays and will have to learn to get the ball out quicker in a Power Four setting. The athleticism and arm talent are evident; all he needs is coaching and development.

Dillon Newton-Short, WR

The Chesterfield, VA native will be a major Red Zone threat for the Hoos for years to come. What stands out is his body control when the ball is in the air, able to win jump balls or adjust to the throw. The wide receiver room has a lot of names, but Newton-Short is high on my list for immediate contributors as a true freshman. He was the most recent commit in this class of 2025, completing the current list of four in-staters.
