Virginia hosted one of its major recruiting targets over the weekend, Northumberland wide receiver Cam Seldon.

Seldon, a 6-foot-1, 210-pound, 4-star athlete, is considered a dynamic playmaker who could play at several positions at the Power 5 collegiate level.

An consensus 4-star, the website ranks him the No. 2 prospect in the state of Virginia and the No. 110 overall prospect in the nation. 

Seldon is the type of in-state player that UVA has been unable to attract for several years and would be a feather in the cap if Tony Elliott and his new staff can keep him within the state borders. Virginia has lost several recruiting battles to Penn State for in-state prospects over the past decade.

Seldon is considered a heavy Penn State lean. He is being recruited by former UVA All-American Anthony Poindexter, who is a defensive assistant for the Nitanny Lions. Both UVA and Tennessee are considered as contenders for Seldon, but will have to work to get a commitment.

The 4-star receiver also holds offers from Virginia Tech, Michigan, North Carolina, West Virginia, NC State, Wake Forest, Maryland, Duke and Syracuse.

Virginia was the first to offer Seldon in May of 2021. He is a member of the Class of 2023.
