Tony Elliott and Clint Sintim have landed another major recruiting victory for the Virginia football program. 

Three-star defensive lineman Terrell Jones has committed to Virginia, he announced in a social media post on Monday.

Jones, a 6'5", 260-pound defensive lineman from Hoover, Alabama initially committed to Illinois back on November 8th, but announced his decision to decommit from Illinois and reopen his recruitment on December 14th. 

Virginia made an offer to Jones on December 29th and he made an official visit to UVA this weekend. After some great conversations with Tony Elliott and defensive line coach Clint Sintim, Jones committed to the Cavaliers and will join the Virginia football program this fall. 

Jones is the second prospect in the class of 2022 to commit to UVA since Tony Elliott became head coach, joining offensive lineman Houston Curry. Elliott and the Cavaliers have also secured commitments from two transfers in Michigan State defensive end Jack Camper and Georgetown offensive lineman Mac Hollensteiner
