View Photo Gallery: Good Counsel DB Kendall Fuller is one of 14 players on the Falcons roster that hold offers. Fuller is one of the country’s top recruits.

Kirk Garner, a rising senior defensive back at Good Counsel, committed to Virginia on Friday, joining teammates Andre Levrone and Brendan Marshall in the Cavaliers class of 2013.

A 5-foot-11, 180-pound defensive back, Garner had more than a dozen offers, choosing Virginia over Maryland, Florida State, N.C. State, Penn State and Purdue, among others.

Garner is one of 14 players on Good Counsel’s roster this season with at least one offer. Within his own secondary, senior defensive back Kendall Fuller is ranked as the No. 3 overall recruit nationally by Rivals.

Other rising seniors with offers include C.J. Jones, Dorian O’Daniel (Clemson), Reggie McGee, Darien Carr, Marcel Ngachie, Levrone and Marshall.

Meanwhile, a number of juniors will soon see an increasing profile, led by offensive lineman Sam Mustipher, who holds eight offers.

The 6-4, 286-pound lineman is being courted by Ohio State, Illinois, N.C. State, Rutgers, Tulane, Hawaii and West Virginia.

Jesse Aniebonam a 6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive end holds two offers, including one from Auburn, and 6-foot-2, 320-pound defensive tackle Derrin Myers holds an offer from Wisconsin.

Defensive back Kobie Walker (N.C. State, Hawaii, Wisconsin) and Sam Madaras (Hawaii, N.C. State, Tulane, Eastern Kentucky) also have offers.

Four of the five juniors with offers did not start last season for top-ranked Good Counsel.

Some sophomores to keep an eye on: Roger Richardson and Andrew Ashley, who could both see playing time this fall. Bryan Strittmatter will back-up Marshall at quarterback.
