As the 2019 season gets underway, recruitNoVA.com recognizes the top 30 senior prospects in and around the Northern Virginia region. Continuing our countdown at number 2 is an athlete who is already set to follow in the footsteps of his older brother, Dominion lineman Jimmy Christ.
#2 Jimmy Christ (2020 OL 6-7 280) – Dominion High School
Jimmy Christ came on the recruiting radar early. His older brother Tommy was also a star athlete at Dominion High School and he was successfully recruited by the University of Virginia coaching staff. All four Christ brothers, Jimmy is the youngest, are or have been linemen. Mike was a defensive lineman at Monmouth and Matt was a offensive lineman at Virginia Tech. Jimmy’s commitment to Virginia wasn’t a absolute lock.
The University of Virginia was Jimmy’s first offer and Jimmy gave his verbal commitment in April.
Just like in their days at Dominion, Jimmy and his brother Tommy will play side by side at the University of Virginia. Jimmy’s 6-7 280 pound frame is hard to find in a college line prospect. The families background in football is a huge bonus. Combine the legacy factor, his knowledge of the game, his skill and his size, and you’ll see why Jimmy Christ is number two in our recruitNoVA Fab 30 and a home run prospect for the Cavaliers.
