Hermitage OL chooses Cavs

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The University of Virginia has landed another top recruit from the Richmond area. Andrew Miles-Redmond from Hermitage committed to UVA Thursday.  The 6'4" 260 pounder is the second rated offensive lineman in the state.  He picked the Cavs over Virginia Tech and North Carolina State.  Miles-Redmond said Thursday that he felt UVA had the best academics of any school he was looking at. He plans to study kinesiology.

Miles-Redmond also said Thursday that the decision to select a college had been weighing on him, and he's happy to decide before the season starts.

"Coach London is doing things the right way," said Miles-Redmond via telephone Thursday. "He's a great guy with a great staff and I think that we can go all the way."
