UConn gets commitment from K Michael Tarbutt

Michael Tarbutt, a kicker from Canisius High School in Buffalo, has committed to UConn.

He made the announcement on his Twitter account

I'm glad to say that i have been offered a scholarship by UCONN and i have commited to play college football there! #HuskyUp #UCONNFootball

Tarbutt has a 52-yard field goal this season as well as a 42 yarder and has touchbacks on 28 of 32 kickoffs. Bobby Puyol will be a junior when Tarbutt arrives next year so he will have some time to get comfortable with the college game before he gets pressed into duty.

The Kohl's Kicking site lists Tarbutt as the No. 53 kicker in the Class of 2015

Here's what they said about him

Michael has a D1 KO leg, he won the Eastern Showcase Camp KO competition, very talented, had good showing in July of 2014 at the NSC, he has great tools to work with and his improvement will be key to his football future, still getting better
