  When Lavel Davis Jr. suffered a torn ACL this spring, Virginia's football team lost its most-anticipated deep threat at wide receiver. Saturday, during the Cavaliers' spring game, the team showed it has a replacement getting ready. Sophomore Dontayvion Wicks, who missed last season with a Lisfranc fracture in his right foot, had a breakout day at Scott Stadium, showing off his speed and athleticism during the two-hour practice. "We always knew he was special," said quarterback Brennan Armstrong. "Now, it's just him getting on the field. Obviously today, he made a lot of good plays down the field."

Wicks's big day included hauling in a 40-yard deep ball, making a jumping catch for a reception on a slant route over the middle and toasting a defensive back with a double move for a 20-yard touchdown. UVa coach Bronco Mendenhall said the offensive coaching staff went into Saturday planning to get Wicks heavily involved. Wide receiver Ra'Shaun Henry, who's been one of the team's top receivers this spring, was unavailable, and the Cavaliers didn't use receiver Billy Kemp IV or tight end Jelani Woods extensively during the scrimmage periods. Wicks said he knew that was the plan going into the spring game. "It's just normal to me because I know I can go out and make plays," said Wicks. "And that's what I have to do to get to where I want to be." - Roanoke Times
