Virginia native Chris Tyree is a five-star recruit and the top-ranked all-purpose back in the class of 2020. He has gotten plenty attention from the best programs in college football.
247Sports’ composite rankings have Tyree as the No. 23 player in the class, overall. He’s the second-ranked player in Virginia.
Tyree says that his recruitment remains open to all comers. However, 10 schools stand above the rest right now.
This afternoon, Chris Tyree announced his current Top 10 schools.
All 10 are major conference teams, and every Power Five league is represented, making this a pretty diverse list.
The list currently features Florida State, Michigan, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn State, Stanford, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

Tyree’s full note:
I would like to thank ALL of the schools that are giving me an opportunity to be a part of their program. I’ve really enjoyed this process and I appreciate all the people I’ve met and created relationships with. Although MY RECRUITMENT IS 100% STILL OPEN and I will not be shutting any schools off, I feel like the following 10 schools show that they are the best fit for me at this time.
It is very early, but Penn State is the early favorite to land Tyree, at least based on the first few 247 crystal ball predictions.
Three of the four predictions logged have him becoming the next five-star Nittany Lions running back, while the lone dissenter believes he will stay in Virginia and play for the Hokies.
