Boyle hauls No. 8 recruiting class

The Virginia women’s basketball team announced letters of intent from four recruits Wednesday, and coach Joanne Boyle’s 2013 class now ranks No. 8 in the nation, according to Blue Star Report.

Blue Star ranks her No. 13 in the nation, and ESPN slots the physical 6-foot-1 forward No. 29 overall and No. 9 at her position. Woodbridge, Va. native Breyana Mason follows as ESPN’s No. 52 recruit and No. 13 point guard.

The Cavaliers also added Amanda Fioravanti, a 6-foot-1 forward from Adamstown, Md., who ESPN ranks No. 93 overall and No. 24 at her position. Fioravanti teamed in high school with current Cavalier Faith Randolph. Five-foot-10 guard Tiffany Suarez of Miami, Fla. rounds out the class for Virginia. Blue Star ranks her No. 74, and ESPN ranks her as the No. 31 guard.
