With the majority of this year's recruiting class pretty much set in stone, it's time to look ahead to the 2020 class. Four-star recruit Reece Beekman took himself off the board on Thursday, as he announced where he'll play college hoops.

Beekman is the No. 6 point guard in his class, per 247Sports. He held offers from 21 programs, which includes Houston and Florida.

The team fortunate enough to come out victorious in the sweepstakes for Beekman is Virginia.

The Cavaliers are looking to reload in the coming years in order to keep their stretch of dominance intact. After all, the defending champions will lose De'Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy to the upcoming NBA Draft.

It turns out that Tony Bennett played a major factor in Beekman's decision.

Beekman had nothing but praise for his future coach when talking to ESPN about his commitment.

Virginia has two recruits for its 2020 class, as Carson McCorkle is the other player to commit early in the recruitment process.

As for this year, the Cavaliers welcome four freshmen and marquee transfer Sam Hauser.

We'll see if the Virginia Cavaliers can successfully defend their title next season, however, the odds will certainly be stacked against them.
