Iowa Football Recruiting 2015: New Hawkeye Linebacker Angelo Garbutt

Three-star linebacker from Carrollton, Texas.

Angelo Garbutt


Hometown: Carrollton, TX 
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 210 lbs 
247 Sports Composite Rating: 3-star
Other Offers: Missouri, Nebraska, Oregon State, Texas Tech, Wake Forest, SMU, Navy
Caring Is Creepy: n/a

Garbutt also has senior film available, but it's just six minutes of him playing running back.  He has some nice highlights as a running back, but they don't seem especially relevant since he's being recruited to Iowa to play linebacker.

n/a.  We didn't write a profile on Garbutt because he just flipped to Iowa yesterday.

COMPARABLE: The best case scenario for Garbutt might be either Christian Kirksey or Anthony Hitchens, depending on how well he's able to pick up coverage skills.  He has the quickness and range to play OLB at Iowa; whether he can pick up the mental aspects of the position are still TBD.  Worst case, he might end up being similar to Reggie Spearman (the one we saw the last two years at Iowa, not the one we dreamed he might become): a speedy blitzer who can be effective in the Raider package.
