The three-star corner looks like he will follow departing assistant Chris Beatty to Virginia.

With all the coaching turnover in the last month, Wisconsin was bound to risk losing a few recruits in the process. While many still plan on joining Paul Chryst’s team in Madison, today the Badgers lost their first commitment of the class of 2015 as Ocean Lakes (Va.) cornerback T.J. Griffin reopened his recruitment.
This is not exactly a shock given that Griffin was recruited by former wide receivers coach Chris Beatty, who is leaving the Badgers for Virginia.
Under the circumstances, it seems likely that Griffin, ranked the No. 100 corner in his class by 247Sports, will become a Cavalier (although he previously had offers from Duke, East Carolina, Marshall, West Virginia and Oregon). The loss of Griffin reduces Wisconsin’s class to 25 commits, including cornerbacks X'Zaviae AusborneTakadrae Williams, and Titus Booker.
