Virginia lands commitment from top-100 forward out of 2024 class
Virginia continues to find some success on the recruiting trail as the team received the commitment of Class of 2024 forward Jacob Cofie. The 6-foot-9 prospect out of Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic is currently listed as a 4-star recruit and is among the top 100 prospects in his class.
With the commitment to UVA, he picked the Cavaliers over a group of finalists that also included Washington, Ohio State, and USC.
The decision came down to the overall feel of the program and the way he saw himself growing as a player within it.
“I ultimately chose Virginia because I felt it was the best school to develop me as a player and take my game to the next level,” Cofie said in an interview with On3 Sports. “Also, being coached by Tony Bennett would be an honor. I feel like there’s room on the team for me to work hard and earn an opportunity to get minutes as a freshman. It felt like family when I went on my visit.”
How he performs at the collegiate level will be something to keep an eye on.
