Coming off a disappointing 12-8-2 season, Virginia's men's program was in need of a jumpstart, and the Cavs got it in the form of one of the nation's top recruiting classes, led by Casa Mia Bays star Chris Agorsor.

Virginia coach George Gelnovatch also announced the signing Shawn Barry (Miramar, Fla.), Hunter Jumper (Plano, Texas), Brian Ownby (Glen Allen, Va.) and Howard Turk (Falls Church, Va.), giving them one of the nation's top recruiting classes for 2008.

"We are very excited about this class and the overall talent and athleticism of the group," Gelnovatch said.

Agorsor, the 2007 NSCAA National High School Player of the Year, is graduating after three years at Maryland's McDonogh School and drew interest from numerous clubs abroad, including Juventus, Ajax, PSV, Sevilla, Tottenham and Newcastle.

"Chris has unbelievable speed, and athleticism," Gelnovatch said. "Another thing that attracted me to Chris were his leadership qualities."

Agorsor, Barry, Jumper and Ownby all attended the same U.S. U-18 national team camp last spring. Barry represented the USA at the 2007 Pan-American Games, while Turk played for the USA in 2007 Under-17 World Cup qualifying.
