Defensive lineman Tyrell Chavis, a 2012 UVa signee who is taking a postgraduate year at Fork Union Military Academy, remains committed to Virginia.
Rival Virginia Tech had attempted to persuade Chavis to take an official recruiting visit to Blacksburg this coming weekend.
“He’s done,” Shuman said. “He was supposed to talk to [Tech assistant] Shane Beamer this morning and apparently they passed the phone to Shane and he said, ‘I’m not coming this weekend. I’m committed to Virginia.”
Shuman, who has a son on Tech’s team and has sent numerous players to both schools, talked to Chavis on Wednesday night.
“I told him, ‘Whatever decision you make, I’m good with, I can handle it,” Shuman said. ” I guess he slept on it, made his decision and knocked it out of the ballpark. He’s committed and he’s done.
“It seems like every day now I’ve got a problem where I’m stuck in the middle between these two schools.”
I don’t envy him.
