Tyjuan Garbutt Recommits to Virginia Tech

The Hokies fended off Pitt and brought one of Virginia's highest rated 2017 recruits back into the fold.

[@tyjuangarbutt4]

Blue-chip commits and marquee flips have kept Virginia Tech scalding hot on the recruiting trail. The Hokies pushed their efforts closer to eleven when they bucked the trend and re-secured the commitment of athletic 4-star defensive end Tyjuan Garbutt.

The 6-3, 215 pound Riverbend HS product originally committed to the Hokies on February 6, 2016, but opened up his recruitment on July 6. Pittsburgh provided the primary competition for Garbutt's services down the stretch.

"I committed again for the same reason I committed a little less than a year ago," Garbutt told The Free-Lance Star. "Coach Fuente, [Defensive coordinator Bud Foster], they're rebuilding. Virginia Tech was once a national power and I think they're getting back to that level."

Dude sat on this for over a week. He's been a Hokie for a while now! Glad to see he made it official!

No more secrets from me! Thank God

So what you're saying is that when he retweeted his commitment last week that was pretty much it, huh?

Don't let this comment take away from the fact that Arkansas blew a 24 point 2nd half lead in the Belk Bowl.
Don't let the Belk Bowl take away from the fact that Matt Ryan blew a 25 point 2nd half lead in the Super Bowl.

So basically since he retweeted his original commitment last week

Before that! My #sauces told a week before the OV he was gonna commit there but things changed. It was a waiting game after that

Hey Pitt

They're too busy eating shit to ever take notice of this gif.

Plucked him right in the Narduzzi.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

More likely offensive player, no?


Tyjuan showed me his Hudl Highlights during one of the games this fall and mentioned he would play wherever he was needed, but mostof the highlights were of him catching the ball. I trust to coaches to make the right decision on where...

I see you showing off the pythons.

Beat me by like 1 minute. I was going to ask how you got into Lane with those guns?

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

Clearly hasn't missed arm day in a while.

Guns really not that impressive. No tri

WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?!

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I mean I've seen teams suck before, but that was the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

Well if you are feeling randy.

Panther Lair comments....

"Apparently every DE in VA and MD is committing to VT. "

"Yeah pretty much. 247 crystal ball thinks they're gonna land Wardlow and Debose as well. Basically every single decent DE that Narduzzi targeted this year is supposedly going to VT. "

VHokie

Pat Narduzzi's tears taste amazing... this (re)commit really excites me! I hope he gets a serious look on offense, maybe a Bucky 2.0 as I thought it was his offense highlights that stood out to me.

Dear Mekhi Becton, Brad Johnson, and Zion Debose...you're up. Come do what the cool kids are doing.

Narduzzi needs to stay the hell out of Virginia , don't they have defensive ends in pa ? Penn state

Looking for the winning streak to last a lot longer 14...15...16...17...18..........99...100...

Looks like he's gonna start out at DE. I definitely thought he was trending towards offense.

QB or TE?

HTHokie93

First one......and then the other.

#VT4SEC

And then OL

I am the heartbeat of Blacksburg. A fortress built out of stone but made with champions.

All depends on whether we can close on Brad Johnson and Wardlow. Mentioned in another thread, but I'd love to see Garbutt on offense, Proctor at backer, and Porcher to put on some weight and move inside to DT. All of that could be on the table if we can find a way to get at least one more DE.

On the other hand, we're fairly TE-rich at the moment, so maybe Garbutt can stay at DE, Proctor at backer. Porcher starts out at DE & shifts inside once he's been Hilgarted/acquainted with the finest campus food in all of the land. Eh? EH?

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Interesting to think about but, it's looking like Proctor is 100% DE, and Porcher is 100% DT.

Johnston, Wardlow & DeBose = DE's I think if we land 2 of them it may open the door for Garbutt on O.

His hudl video is certainly impressive on O. Be interesting to have him as an option.
Good moves and versatility.

What an exciting time to be a Hokie Football fan. Fuente is doing great things on the field and on the trails. What else could we ask for?

Think how excited Coach Foster is going to be with all this talent!

The thing about posting a story while driving 75 MPH on I-395 is there's little time for editing.

75 MPH on I-395

How? Where? Impressive!

Let's Go Hokies!!

Indeed. Even in the best conditions, e.g. non-gridlock, 75mph on I-395 requires dodging tons of dumbasses drivers going 5-10mph UNDER the speed limit for no good reason.

Please don't.

Wtf...please don't do that, good lord.

Hey Nardouche!

Hey Pitt, how's recruiting going for you lately?

One more check in the box. Now close Debose and somehow pull Johnson out of South Carolina and I will be very happy.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Not to nitpick, but gauging your overall thoughts on the class. Would you be going from happy to very happy, or very happy to elated?

@hokie_rd

Personally, I'm butt-cised for this recruiting class, which I would say is at least above very happy.

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

I keep saying "OK I'm happy with this" but then we land another stud and the ceiling raises. Man this is fun.

So- teaser- I don't know all the details, but expect a live thread (likely behind the TKPC wall) on Signing Day where I will share my thoughts on all the signees.

I try really hard not to be critical of players before they sign their LOI. Kids do read these sites and I don't want to do any kind of harm. That said, there are some verbal commitments that I think will be terrific players, and there are some other verbals who I have some doubts about.

I will say this, while all the kids have to grow accustomed to the conditioning, speed, and power associated with the college game, this staff has done an excellent job of identifying players with high ceilings that also fit the scheme. I would love for them to get an out of nowhere ready to play DT given the depth concerns there, but otherwise I think they have properly addressed needs while upping the talent level.

Appreciate the feedback!

@hokie_rd

Speaking of growing accustomed to speed, we do need Speed. It would be nice to get Speed. Come on board Speed.

He is a big domino- the depth chart at several positions may hinge on how his recruitment ends.

I'm happy to upvote ya to green so I got a Q? 4 ya... What do you know about Bama coming in late and his OV there? How big a chance do they have swiping him from the good guys?

"Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the mouth."

Not likely I suspect since he took his OV to Oregon instead of Bama this weekend. Just a gut feeling though. FWIW, 247 still thinks it is a 2 team race between UGA and the good guys.

TKP is the best! The last 45 minutes I spent going through these great comments have made me oh so happy to be a Hokie4Life!!!!

Look fellas (and ladies), i'm no paid spokesman for TKP but again I really want encourage to all you who frequent this site to join TKP if you haven't done so yet so we can get more and more of this great content. It was the best $84 bucks I spent last year.

I can't post any gifs with the device I'm on so I'd appreciated a couple "JUST DO IT!" Gif contributions!

"Everyone has a plan 'till they get punched in the mouth."

I got you, fam

I agree wholeheartedly. For all the information and enjoyment I get from TKP, it's the best $84 I've spent in a long time. I have memberships elsewhere, but nothing compares. (Insert Prince gif).

Now this is funny!

So how about signing up!
