On Monday we told you about Winston-Salem State’s latest transfer class, but Virginia Union’s might be even more impressive. VUU’s 2015 roster includes several additions from Division I schools, including 12 from the FBS.

VUU’s pickups include a pair of teamates from both UVa. and Louisville, as well as former Purdue quarterback Austin Parker and former Virginia Tech defensive back Max Beaulieu.

QB, Austin Parker (Purdue)
WR/DB, Jusse York (ODU)
DB, Anthony Cooper (UVa)
DB, Stephan Robinson (Louisville)
LB Joshua Fasavalu (San Diego State)
DL, Miles Pace-(Central Florida)
DB, Zachary Dunston (Marshall)
DB, Kameron Mack (UVa)
DB, Donaldven Manning, (Va. Tech)
DE. Max Beaulieu (Syracuse)
OL, Abraham Garcia  (Louisville)
DE, Donte Phillips (Tennessee)

VUU also has FCS transfers, including several from the MEAC, like former FAMU quarterback Dane James and former Bethune-Cookman TE/WR Jamel Turner.

Coming off a 7-3 finish, and with these new additions, Virginia Union looks like a legit title conteder in the CIAA. The program is no doubt taking advantage of the network that current athletic director and legendary coach Joe Taylor has developed through the years.

Rookie head coach Mark James pumped new life into the program in 2014, and it looks like VUU is ready to try to end Virginia State’s two-year long hold on the CIAA North and take their shot at bringing the title up I-95 to Richmond.
