After announcing his decommitment from Indiana during his official visit to Virginia over the weekend, Freedom High School star athlete Kameron Courtney is expected to flip his commitment to UVA when he announces his college football destination on Tuesday — his birthday — afternoon (4 p.m.).

With National Signing Day set for Wednesday, Courtney’s commitment could be a boost to the Cavaliers’ 12-man high school class, presently ranked next-to-last in the ACC.

The 3-star, a standout, two-way performer for two-time state champion Freedom of Woodbridge, had originally committed to the Hoosiers in mid-July, picking Indiana over UVA, Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Pitt. However, when IU fired coach Tom Allen and his staff and hired JMU coach Curt Cignetti, Courtney decided to move on.

Indiana had recruited Courtney as a free safety, however Virginia has reportedly been interested in him for a position — likely receiver — on offense.

As a junior at Freedom, Courtney posted 839 yards (16.5 yards per catch) and 13 touchdowns as a receiver over a 15-game schedule. He also rushed for 194 yards (three TDs), and had five interceptions (one for a touchdown) and two kickoff returns for scores. He spent part of his senior season injured.

Composite rankings of the four major recruiting services have Courtney rated the No. 103 athlete nationally in the 2024 recruiting class and the No. 24 overall prospect in the state of Virginia. 247Sports ranked him slightly higher, as the No. 86 athlete nationally and No. 20 in the Commonwealth.
