Today we hit the Badger state where a loaded 2013 class still has some mid and high major prospects left on the board despite a number of earlier commitments.  This time it’s Grafton (Wis.) 2013 Forward Scotty Tyler who continues to generate interest with each passing month.  We caught up with the talented forward to get the latest…

Currently weighing offers from Idaho State and Penn State, Tyler will make a return visit to Idaho State to visit the Bengals next Thursday.

“It’s a little smaller,” he said. “I played with some of the guys. Playing there, I felt more like it was a brotherhood. They all got along. The coaches were great, they were awesome. I felt very welcome there.”

Tyler will then spend three days in Happy Valley the weekend of Sept 29th. Tyler was already able to visit Penn State in the spring, where he earned a scholarship at the Nittany Lions’ basketball camp.

“I went there for the camp to try and get the gist of how the campus felt and everything like that,” said Tyler. “I feel like they’re hard on you, but they’re going to push you to your potential. They’re great guys. I’d feel comfortable going there.”


Also fielding interest from Boston, Boston College, New Hampshire, Nebraska-Omaha, St. Bonaventure, Wichita State, and Iowa, Tyler is starting to see an increase of interest coming from the Eagles.

Boston College will watch Tyler play this fall and an offer from the Eagles would add another interesting option to the mix.

“Just a few calls,” said Tyler. “It sounds like they’re going to come out for a few of my open gyms. They are going to come watch me play. When I was in Florida, I had a bum calf. They didn’t get to see me play that much, but they heard about me. I’ve just been talking to them and getting a relationship going with them.

“They’d definitely be one of the higher ones. I haven’t gone there, but I’ve heard the city of Boston is a great city. It’d definitely be a challenge to pick between all of them.”

Tyler says he currently does not have a leader, “Everything is pretty much even now.”

Tyler played with the TP Elite program during the grassroots travel season.
