Tony Bennett didn’t wait long to turn his attention to the 2021 class after using his final scholarship for next season on Rice transfer Trey Murphy. Germantown (PA) guard Jordan Longino got the call today that he has earned a UVA offer.
The 6’5 guard, who doubles as a standout quarterback during football season, is also being heavily recruited by nearby Villanova. Other offers include Indiana, Marquette, and Florida. Bennett watched him frequently last summer when he played for DeAndre Hunter’s old AAU program Philly Pride on the Under Armour circuit.
Villanova is believed to be the favorite to land Longino. It’s an interesting offer because he is somewhat similar to UVA’s prime target Trevor Keels, who the Hoos are batting Villanova for. Today’s offer could position both program well to get a terrific player. Yesterday, Keels shot down rumors that he would be committing soon.
