Tony Elliott and company knew that they had their work cut out for them in reconstructing the Virginia football roster in the first few weeks of Elliott's tenure as head coach. With many key pieces leaving the team this offseason through graduation, the NFL Draft, or the transfer portal, the Cavaliers needed to secure some late commitments from the class of 2022 as well as transfers from other schools. Elliott and his coaching staff have put in a lot of work on those fronts already, especially towards reinforcing UVA's depleted offensive line. Let's take a look at the talent the Hoos have brought in so far in 2022.
