Peace is a Wahoo

Newport News (Va.) Denbigh defensive end Chris Peace not only received an offer from Virginia, but he committed on the spot on Sunday to become the 16th pledge in the 2014 class.

Chris Peace had plans to go to Hampton on Tuesday and Albany next weekend, but it seems that he saw everything he needed to see this weekend at Virginia.

The Newport News (Va.) Denbigh defensive end pulled the trigger on Sunday, and committed soon after receiving an offer from Coach Mike London. Peace was on his official visit to UVa when he made the decision. Coach Marques Hagans was his main recruiter, and it was his relationship with him and his relationship with the whole staff that sealed the deal.

"He (London) is one of the main reasons why I love UVa. They have great coaches," Peace explained. "Hagans is my inspiration. He is always telling me they key to success, I have to keep my mind straight and keep my mind focused."

Peace joins Indiana (Pa.) defensive end Darrious Carter, Lynchburg (Va.) Virginia Episcopal defensive end Michael Biesemier, early enrollee five-star defensive tackle Andrew Brown and linebacker duo Purcellville (Va.) Woodgrove's J.J. Jackson and Caanan Brown of Clearwater (Fla.) Central Catholic on the defensive line.
