Mike London and UVa's surge in the Tidewater area has reached its highest peak yet.
Tuesday the Cavaliers landed a verbal commitment from Taquan Mizzell - a running back from Bayside High School.
He's the first 5-star recruit to choose UVa during London's tenure and he's one of more than 20 players UVa has snagged from the 757 in three years.
During his junior year Mizzell ran for 1,098 yards and 23 touchdowns while playing through an ankle injury.
He had more than 20 offers from BCS schools. Click here for his profile.
