Virginia men's basketball team signs three players for Class of 2011
Virginia will add three players to its men's basketball team next fall after signing a trio of recruits in the past few days following the start of the NCAA's early signing period. Darion Atkins, a forward from Clinton, Md., Malcolm Brogdon, a guard out of Norcross, Ga., and Paul Jesperson, a forward from Merrill, Wisc. all agreed to join Coach Tony Bennett's program for the 2011-12 season.
Atkins (6-foot-8, 210 lbs.) is a three-star power forward, according to Rivals.com. He attends the Landon School and played on the Team Takeover AAU team.
Brogdon (6-foot-5, 200 lbs.) is a four-star shooting guard at Greater Atlanta Christian who played for the Georgia Stars AAU program.
Jesperson (6-foot-7, 190 lbs.) is a three-star small forward from Merrill (Wisc.) High. His AAU squad was the Wisconsin Playmakers.
The Cavaliers possibly could add one more player to the 2011 recruiting class, or they could hold the scholarship and bring in three recruits in the Class of 2012.
