As expected, Virginia Tech had some player attrition on Friday. We knew that had to happen if Buzz Williams added Tyrone Outlaw to the team, which he apparently has done.

On Wednesday, June 3, Malik Mueller tweeted that he was “super excited” to get back to Blacksburg and get to work with his “fam” (I.E. his teammates). He certainly hadn’t decided to transfer at that point in time. It also appears he deleted that tweet over the weekend, after it was retweeted by Mark Berman on Friday.

On Friday, June 12, Tyrone Outlaw told Mark Berman of the Roanoke Times that he signed his letter of intent “a week or two ago.” However, the spring signing period ended on May 20, so he couldn’t have signed an LOI “a week or two” before June 12. Either he signed an LOI on or before May 20, or what he actually signed “a week or two ago” were enrollment papers, and that is different than an LOI. If his timing is correct and he signed enrollment papers, he officially became a Hokie between May 29 and June 5. If his timing is incorrect and he signed an actual letter of intent, he officially became a Hokie on or before May 20. So it sounds as if the latest he possibly signed with Tech was June 5, which is two days after Malik Mueller tweeted that he was “super excited” to get back to work with his team.
