The 5’10”, 175-pound Tyree was a standout on both sides of the ball this past season for Thomas Dale, earning Class 6, Region B first-team honors at running back and defensive back. Look for him to play offense on the major college level, however. He is rated the no. 1 all-purpose back in the country in his class by Rivals and 247Sports.
Virginia has two commitments so far in the class of 2020. There is cornerback Antonio Webb, Jr., who attends Chester (VA) Life Christian Academy, which is within minutes of Thomas Dale High. Defensive lineman Jahmeer Carter of Maryland has committed to the Hoos as well.
UVA signed eight in-state recruits in the 2017 Class, which was the first full class with Bronco Mendenhall as head coach. The Hoos signed three recruits from the Commonwealth in 2018 and have four in-state commits in 2019.
