East Meadow, N.Y., offensive tackle John Elliott has listed Virginia as one of his top schools since receiving a scholarship offer as a junior.

On Saturday, the 6-foot-4, 282-pound Elliott had a chance to visit UVa for the first time and he came away impressed.

"Virginia moved way up on my list after having a chance to visit," Elliott said.
