Not even a week after landing an offer from the University of Virginia, Antonio Webb (2020 DB 5-10 170) has verbally committed to play football for Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall and the Cavaliers.
“It’s a blessing to be in this position and I’m steady working,” Webb said via Facebook message.
Antonio reclassified to the 2020 class after transferring from Norview to Life Christian of Chester, VA earlier this month. He’s the first official commitment of the Class of 2020 for UVA.

His camp performance in Charlottesville last week earned him the offer from the Cavaliers. In an interview last week, A.J. explained:
““I ran a 4.47 (forty). I did well in drills and competed well in 1 on 1’s. Everybody enjoyed me and the head coach called me in his office and offered me a scholarship (after the camp),” Webb said. “(Coach Mendenhall) said he enjoyed me as a player. I love the vibe they bring.”
It obviously didn’t take long for him to mull it over. UVA is pacing well when it comes to in-state recruits for the Class of 2019, and Antonio Webb’s commitment sets a pace for the 2020 class.
