After being heavily recruited for over three years, TyJuan Garbutt is ready to make his final college decision.

The one-time Virginia Tech commit is still considering the Hokies and Pittsburgh, and will make his announcement via Twitter tomorrow at 5 p.m.


Who will land the nation's 18th-ranked defensive end?

Despite decommitting from Virginia Tech in July,  the Hokies have remained the leader for Garbutt. Although Pittsburgh made a late push, the Hokies' lead is too big.

In the end, I expect Garbutt to commit to Virginia Tech. His overall familiarity with the program and relationship with Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster will be the difference.

Garbutt finished his senior season with 211 yards rushing, 554 yards receiving and nine touchdowns on offense. Defensively, he had 68 tackles, including nine tackles for loss and seven sacks, seven forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two pass breakups.
