Cutler To Be At FUMA For One Year
Fork Union Military Academy (VA) postgraduate head coach John Shuman said that quarterback Corwin Cutler will need a full postgraduate year before heading off to Charlottesville. There was talk of Cutler, a 6’4″, 185-pound signal caller who signed with the Hoos in the class of 2013, perhaps being able to enroll at UVa this coming January. Now, though, it appears he’ll enroll next summer assuming he does what is needed academically.
Coach Shuman says that Cutler has had a hiccup in his short time at FUMA, adding that the situation was “nothing major.” The longtime coach did not go into specifics but the general indication is that the issue is related to adjusting to the military lifestyle. Cutler remains at Fork Union and remains a firm commitment to Virginia.
Health-wise, Cutler has taken the field in at least one game this season, having worked his way back from a devastating knee injury suffered last November while at Ocean Lakes (Virginia Beach, VA). “Turtle” earned AAA VHSCA first-team all-state honors for his play his senior season.

With the Hoos off to a 2-4 start, one concern among fans is just how firmly committed Virginia’s class of 2014 recruits are. Upland (CA) cornerback/wide receiver Jeffery Farrar provided some reason for concern by taking official visits to Utah and Washington State in the month of September. He has since reaffirmed his commitment. Peachtree Ridge (Suwanee, GA) running back Jordan Ellis said he is firm in his decision but admits other schools are still calling. All bets are off if Virginia spirals downward the rest of the season, but right now the entire class appears solid.
There certainly is no question of how happy Episcopal Academy (Newtown Square, PA) tight end recruit Evan Butts is with his decision. The 6’4″, 225-pound senior accepted Virginia’s scholarship offer just hours after receiving it this past summer. Butts, who has called UVa his “dream school,” is pleased with the development of the offense through six games and optimistic about the direction of the program.
