Date:

Virginia redshirt freshman QB Corwin "Turtle" Cutler announced he will transfer to Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College.

The four-star member of the 2013 recruiting class never saw the field for the Cavs. He showed plenty of promise in high school, so don't be surprised if "Turtle" has a huge season in the JUCO ranks and crawls back to the sport's highest level in 2017.

Virginia graduate QB Greyson Lambert asked for and received a release from his scholarship.

It in an unsurprising announcement after Matt Johns stole his starting gig. "It wasn’t close," head coach Mike London said last month about the competition. "If it was close we’d still be talking about going into August camp with two guys fighting for the same position. Matt clearly did what he was supposed to do and led our team in a way that we think the quarterback should be able to play to make us successful." Lambert started nine games last year and posted a 10/11 TD/INT rate. Colorado State has reportedly already expressed interest in his services.
May 16 - 6:50 PM

Stanford graduate TE Charlie Hopkins transferred to Virginia.

Hopkins is a former defensive lineman, and head coach Mike London already pointed to his run blocking skills as one reason for the fit. Hopkins already graduated, so he will be able to play immediately.

Vikings signed Virginia S Anthony Harris.

Harris (6'1/183) made 35 career starts for the Cavs, tallying 11 interceptions, six tackles for loss and two forced fumbles. Harris was utilized as an "interchangeable" safety in college, but lacks the body mass and tackling ability to become a consistent force in the box, missing a whopping 16 tackles as a senior. Harris will have to be a deep safety in the NFL. He does offer ideal ball skills for the position and ran a respectable 4.56 forty in Indianapolis.
May 3 - 3:56 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay ranked Virginia S Anthony Harris as the best prospect who didn't get drafted.

"Harris is a ball hawk at the free safety position, displaying a natural feel for playing in space and big-time playmaking instincts," McShay wrote. "He's solid in coverage but has limitations, as his narrow frame is an issue against bigger wide receivers and tight ends, and he lacks the ideal agility to stick with slot receivers." Harris tumbled down boards due to a series of unfortunate events. Harris missed the Senior Bowl and his pro day while recovering from shoulder surgery, never really getting a chance to impress evaluators this winter. Harris recorded at least 80 tackles in three straight years and led the country with eight interceptions in 2013. He signed with the Vikings on Saturday and has a real chance of sticking on Minnesota's roster.

Raiders selected Virginia OLB/DE Max Valles with the No. 179 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Valles (6'5/251) spent two years at UVA after a one-year stint at a military academy, tallying 18 TFLs, 13 sacks and four forced fumbles as a 16-game starter. He was a third-team All-ACC pick in 2014. Valles is a good athlete for his size, running 4.83 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. Fundamentally raw, Valles is a one- or two-year project but has tools to become an intimidating edge presence who can rush the passer and stop the run.
May 2 - 3:50 PM

49ers selected Virginia OLB Eli Harold with the No. 79 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Harold (6'3/247) turned pro after three years at UVA, where he piled up 36.5 TFLs, 17.5 sacks and four forced fumbles. In 2014, he was voted second-team All-ACC by the conference's coaches. Although tape watchers have criticized Harold's pass-rush technique, he was an excellent college run defender and has big-time athleticism and length, suggesting he offers untapped potential off the edge. Harold has 33-inch arms and ran 4.60 in Indy, also ripping up the vertical (35") and broad (10'3") jumps. Harold is the kind prospect who may struggle initially in the pros, but could grow into an annual double-digit sack threat.
May 1 - 10:31 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay ranks Virginia edge rusher Eli Harold as the No. 7 available player heading into Day 2.

"Harold needs to get stronger and improve his reliability as a tackler, in addition to developing better recognition skills," McShay wrote. "But he has a high upside as a pass-rusher, with several pass-rush moves and good athleticism and closing burst." We aren't quite as high on Harold. Josh Norris ranks him as the No. 32 available prospect and ranks him as the No. 60 available prospect in the class.
May 1 - 4:15 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Virginia edge rusher Eli Harold would give "Chicago a young, up-and-coming edge rusher with a bright future,"with the No.39 pick.

With the Bears transitioning to Vic Fangio's 3-4 scheme, the 6-foot-3, 247-pound Harold would provide Chicago with an explosive pass rusher off the edge. Harold recorded 14.5 tackles for a loss and seven sacks last season, and earned Second-team All-ACC honors. The Bears had the Virginia prospect in for an official visit as well.

ESPN's Todd McShay writes that Virginia edge rusher Eli Harold is "a little raw but has the athleticism that gives him good upside as an edge rusher."

"He needs to improve his strength and tackling ability," McShay wrote. The analyst ranks Harold as the No. 33 overall prospect, more or less in line with the consensus opinion that Harold is a high-second-rounder who may sneak into Round 1. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Harold posted a 1.56 10-yard split on his 4.60 forty at the combine. He recorded 14.5 TFL and seven sacks last season, earning Second-team All-ACC honors.
Apr 18 - 4:39 PM

Because Virginia S Anthony Harris is "recovering from shoulder surgery and is missing opportunities to boost his stock," according to NFL Media, the prospect might be falling down boards.

"The safety class this year is extremely weak outside of Alabama's Landon Collins, so Harris could have used his pro day to vault himself higher in the minds of scouts. However, Harris didn't work out with other UVA players at the pro day," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. Harris missed the Senior Bowl along with his pro day because of the injury, but he was able to record a 4.56 second forty at the combine.

Per Yahoo's Rand Getlin, Virginia edge rusher Eli Harold has visited and/or worked out for 14 teams including the Steelers, Bears, Jags, Saints and Jets.

It's no surprise that NFL teams want to see Harold, as he's an early entrant who is only 20 years old. NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Harold as the No. 6 edge rusher in the class and compares him to Olivier Vernon. The 6-foot-3, 247-pound Harold posted a 1.56 10-yard split on his 4.60 forty at the combine. Harold recorded 14.5 tackles for a loss and seven sacks last season, earning Second-team All-ACC honors.
Apr 8 - 3:53 PM

Virginia S Anthony Harris is visiting the Vikings on Wednesday, according to Matt Vensel.

Harris missed the Senior Bowl due to injury and was held out of his pro day for the same reason. He only completed the forty at the Combine, recording it in 4.56 seconds. Because of the quiet pre-draft process, it would be a surprise if Harris is selected in the second or third round.
Apr 8 - 10:02 AM

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Virginia's Eli Harold as the No. 6 edge rusher in the class.

"Explosive, leggy outside linebacker who has surprising strength at the point of attack, and the hands and length to become an outstanding edge-setter," he wrote. "Harold's burst upfield to threaten the edge is pro caliber and his ability to bend the corner at a 45-degree angle creates potential for him to become a quality pass rusher from either outside linebacker spot in a 3-4." The analyst compares Harold to Olivier Vernon. The 6-foot-3, 247-pounder posted a 1.56 10-yard split on his 4.60 forty at the combine.

Virginia S Anthony Harris "has some coverage limitations in man, but his skills will get him drafted and should also earn him a starting spot fairly quickly," wrote NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein.

The analyst compares him to Jaiquawn Jarrett. "Productive three-year starter with above-average instincts and football intelligence," Zierlein wrote. "Was an interchangeable safety, playing both deep and in run support, but lacks the bulk, physicality and sure tackling to make a living in the box in the NFL." Harris ranks as the class' No. 4 safety, writes Zierlein. Harris recorded at least 80 tackles in three straight years and led the country with eight interceptions in 2013.
