Tyjuan Garbutt has seen his recruitment skyrocket this summer and the talented defensive end made his way to Morgantown Sunday for the final summer camp.
Garbutt, 6’4 222lbs. defensive end from Riverbend High (VA), is one of the most talented prospects in the state of Virginia. His visit to WVU this past weekend exceeded expectations but there was one factor that stood out to him the most. “It was a great experience and the way the WVU coaching staff spoke to me, the WVU coaches really know their stuff.”
Even though he wasn’t able to speak directly with defensive coordinator Tony Gibson about his role in the 3-3-5 scheme, it is on his list to do. “I am going to contact him or next time I visit and have more conversation about that.” Wherever he fits into the defensive scheme the Mountaineers success with DE/OLB prospect in the NFL is a factor to Tyjuan. “I like the fact that they put players in the NFL also that’s always has been my dream and WVU does a good job at getting their kids ready for that stuff.” However that’s not the only factor in choosing a school to play football at. “There are some schools I like for the football program and their success but there are also schools I like for their academics.”
While it’s early in his recruitment, the visit to Morgantown really made an impact on the process for Tyjuan but he’s in no rush to make a decision. “I don’t really have a leader, so I’m just to wait and see if there’s one program that can give me both of those but I will be back at WVU for games, Junior Day and other events.”
