Charlottesville, VA (Future150) -- Under Tony Bennett, the Cavaliers have become a top five program in the ultra competitve ACC. With that success has come an uptick in recruiting, and that may not be more evident than it is with the 2016 class. 

Kyle Guy, #35 in Top-150, Lawrence Central (IN): Not many players in this class can fill it up like Guy does. Like most Hoosier state natives, he has an effortless jumper that falls from well past the three point line. Guy is also an underrated ball-handler and athlete as well. He has All-ACC potential.

Ty Jerome, #46 in Top-150, Iona Prep (NY): Another big and heady guard, Jerome looks to be in line to take over the point guard position from London Perrentes down the line. He has great vision and ball-handling ability, as well as the ability to stretch defenses out with his shooting. Jerome is the perfect player to play point at UVA.

Jay Huff, #66 in Top-150, Voyager Academy (NC): A skilled forward who came on strong this summer, Huff has a ton of upside. Virigina wasted little time in garnering a commitment from him, and while he may possess the most potential of the group, there's a chance that Huff will redshirt his freshman season. He needs to get stronger in order to better defend the post, but like most Bennett recruits, can really shoot the rock.  

DeAndre Hunter, #102 in Top-150, Friends Central (PA): Hunter also turned in a big summer, which is encouraging after he missed most of his junior year with injuries. He is a decent athlete and finds his way to the rim. Hunter is also a very good rebounder for his position and has the tools to be a very good perimeter defender. It will be interesting to see if Bennett uses him as a stretch-four or if he lets him play on the perimeter all the time. Hunter is more than capable of doing both. 

The coaching staff did a great job with this class. Landing two instant-impact back court players is huge. No one player will be able to replace Malcolm Brogdon or Mike Tobey in this group, but combined they will certainly keep UVA near the top of the ACC.
