04:30 PM ET 02.27 | Virginia is making its presence known on the recruiting trail: the Cavaliers landed Quin Blanding - widely considered the top safety in the nation - Wednesday afternoon.
Last year, Mike London got Taquan Mizzell - one of the nation's top running backs - to sign. And this year's class is already starting off with a bang with Blanding.
Blanding, a five-star recruit from Virginia Beach, is arguably the best player in the class of 2014 to already commit to a school, and is considered the No. 4 player in the country per Rivals. The Hoos only won four games last year, but considering they're bringing in better prospects than the school has ever seen in the past, that might change soon.
