One of the top remaining Class of 2019 prospects, four-star defensive tackle Jeffrey M'Ba, has been putting off his commitment decision until the last minute. That decision appears to have now been reached.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday morning, M'Ba announced that he is committing to the University of Virginia. Making the announcement in English and French, he expressed his delight at playing for the team next season.


Per 247Sports, M'Ba is the No. 341 prospect in the country. He is considered the No. 25 defensive tackle in the country, and the No. 4 prospect from the state of Connecticut.

In picking the Cavaliers, M'Ba turned down a number of top programs from the SEC and Big Ten. He had outstanding offers from Michigan, Penn State, Ohio State, Florida, and Tennessee, among others.

Last night, the Cavaliers basketball team was able to avoid another upset by a No. 16 seed in the NCAA Tournament to advance to the Round of 32. The addition of Jeffrey M'Ba caps off a terrific week in University of Virginia sports.

For the Virginia football team, the addition gives them their second four-star commitment for the Class of 2019. The previous several classes have not even had one.

Suffice it to say, things appear to be getting even better for head coach Bronco Mendenhall and the Cavaliers.
