Thank you to all of the schools that have recruited me during these past few days. I am very grateful for the opportunities I was given and the time each school spent on me. I have decided to commit to the University of Virginia and am excited for the next chapter of my life.

Christ, a Sterling, Virginia native landed in his home state four days after he entered the portal on Sunday. Christ once was committed to Virginia at one point in his recruiting process before flipping to Penn State.
Christ (6-foot-7, 295 pounds) was a three-star recruit out of Dominion High School, where he was the number nine player in Virginia, the No. 28 offensive tackle, and the No. 379 player nationally in the 2020 recruiting cycle, according to 247Sports composite rankings.
Christ appeared in ten games last season for Penn State and played mostly on special teams. He also earned Academic All-Big Ten Honors in 2022.
As a graduate transfer, Christ has three years of eligibility remaining.
