Tony Elliott is off to a great start in building his 2025 recruiting class with the addition of one of New England’s top quarterback prospects.

Cole Geer, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound, dual-threat QB from Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts, announced on his social media that he has committed to Virginia. Geer chose UVA over offers from Virginia Tech, Boston College, UConn and UMass.

Geer was offered by UVA last May and by Tech in July.

A consensus 3-star, Geer just turned 15 in the spring. He is ranked the No. 16 quarterback in the nation for his class by ESPN and No. 53 by On3. He is also rated the No. 3 overall player in Massachusetts by On3, the No. 2 prospect by ESPN.

Geer is a high-school teammate of ‘24 UVA commit Tristan Ward, a longtime friend. Ward is a wide receiver for Deerfield. The two grew up in the same town together in Connecticut, and now can continue their QB-WR chemistry at the next level.

Geer has continued to work with two other high-profile quarterbacks, Pop Watson, a Nebraska commit, and Ryan Puglisi, who has been offered by Alabama and Georgia.

During an Elite 11 regional camp, Geer produced the top score for athleticism with his test results in vertical leap, 40-yard dash and the agility shuffle run.
