This will be built out and kept updated as new info becomes available, either adding names, taking them off, or updating our status (to include our roster situation as needed). Pair this with our Spring/Summer 2018 Recruiting Calendar to fully track the who, what, when, and where of Virginia's basketball recruiting.
Note: I list HS recruits only if there's been a media report that UVA is involved (evaluating, offered, communicating). For transfers, however, since intel is often scarce, I list those that either (a) there's real speculation, (b) there was a HS recruiting relationship, or (c) they are an ACC level talent and meet an area of need.
Interest level is largely subjective based on publicly available knowledge, is intended to reflect a combination of (a) UVA's interest in the recruit, (b) the recruit's interest in UVA, and (c) the speed with which the recruitment is approaching the finish line (i.e., still wide open? finalists announced? commitment date set?). It is intended to help fans understand on which recruits to focus most:
Hot - UVA is a legit finalist and a decision is imminent
Warm - there's mutual love and we're in the lead pack (though not necessarily the leader)
Moderate - there's mutual interest but it's still early enough not to get too invested
Cool - there's a two-way relationship but nothing to indicate much movement anytime soon.
All star-ratings and rankings shown are taken from 247Sports' in-house when available.
