The Virginia Cavaliers are coming off a 2-10 season in Year 1 of the Bronco Mendenhall era, so the team could use all the help they can get heading into Year 2. However, two grad transfers, Colin McGovern and Marvin Zanders, will not enroll at the university this fall.
“Offensive linemen Colin McGovern (Notre Dame) and quarterback Marvin Zanders (Missouri) will not follow through on enrolling with the Virginia program, Virginia head coach Bronco Mendenhall announced. Virginia confirmed two other graduate transfers — offensive lineman John Montelus from Notre Dame and Brandon Pertile from Oklahoma State — will enroll.”
Zanders, a former three-star recruit coming out of college, would have been an intriguing addition to the Cavaliers. McGovern would have also been a nice addition for the program out of Notre Dame, but neither, as the report suggests, will be enrolling at UVA.
The good news, though, is the university still landed two other grad transfers in Brandon Pertile and John Montelus.
