“We are thrilled to have Tyler sign his National Letter of Intent. We have recruited him for a year. He’s a great kid and big-time player. I think our fans will be excited to see him. His mother and the people around him are special. Cane Broome, a former Bearcat, is one of his assistant coaches, which is really neat, and he’s played for a Hall of Fame high school coach in Jere Quinn, who even I played against as a player. Tyler will come in prepared, and I’m really excited he’s a Bearcat.”
