We’ve kept hearing that UVA is involved with a lot of transfers, more than were being reported. Well today, at least two new ones surfaced that hadn’t been publicly reported.
I was given some information this afternoon confirming that Virginia is involved with Eastern Washington junior big man Tanner Groves. That’s the bearded guy who dropped 35 on Kansas in the tourney. When we asked UVA sources about him we were told there’s mutual interest, and unclear if he would have an offer as of yet. There’s some things I can’t reveal but it’s safe to say his interest in Virginia is very very high.
Tanner’s younger brother Jacob Groves, a 6’7 soph wing, is also in the portal. I don’t know yet if UVA is involved with him.
if you missed it in the other thread, we also confirmed Virginia is seriously involved with Charleston Southern senior guard Phlandrous Fleming. NC State is also heavily in the mix. Like most of these transfers, we rarely know the full picture of who’s coming for them. He’s a definite take for UVA. As a grad transfer, he’s almost a freebie in terms of where UVA’s roster is. Meaning he wouldn’t impact what they can do with other spots that much.
