After much discussion, Brosius commits to Virginia

Late last night, QB Tyler Brosius of Waynesville Tuscola High committed to Virginia.

That started the avalanche.

“The phone has been going absolutely crazy,” said his dad, Mike Brosius, a few minutes ago. “This thing is totally out of control. It’s other coaches calling, wanting him not to commit yet, trying to change his mind.

“Today’s been a tough day; a really tough day.”

Among the other schools that had offered Tyler were East Carolina, Maryland, Pittsburgh, along with Central Florida, Western Carolina and Elon.

Brosius committed after visiting Charlottesville over the weekend, but not until the family stayed up until midnight last night discussing it.

Asked if the commitment is a firm one, Mike Brosius said it was. But he sounded awfully tired as he said it.

Tyler Brosius is ranked No.14 on The Observer's Top 25 Prospects list. He threw for 2,437 yards and 27 TDs as a junior, with 10 interceptions. He has great QB size at 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, and has decent 4.9-second speed in the 40-yard dash. --Stan Olson

The Wahoos just wasted a acholly.

This guy is at best a FCS caliber player, and maybe not even that.
