Tyshon Alexander makes his pick
The Creighton Bluejays have been aggressive recruiting coast to coast the past few years, and have reeled in some talented players. They got 2017 off to a quick and impressive start on Saturday with the commitment of TyShon Alexander. A North Carolina native, Alexander impressed with Team Charlotte on the AAU circuit and that led to a lot of big time interest. However it was the Creighton Bluejays and assistant Preston Murphy that were able to make a huge impression according to Team Charlotte AAU Coach Jeff McInnis. “He went on an unofficial visit before school started and he just fell in love with the place,” said McInnis. “He has a great relationship with Preston Murphy, and I guess he just liked the whole coaching staff. His style of play fits how they play. He is a three point shooter, and he can come in and play right away.” He continued, “Creighton also has an incredible fan base, and I think he is a kid who was looking for a smaller place to play where he could have an immediate impact. They want him to shoot the ball so it is a perfect fit.” While the commitment seems early, McInnis said that he made sure Alexander was confident before issuing the commitment. “Honestly I questioned him 100 times just to make sure, and he told me he knew,” said McInnis. “He found what he was looking for and he didn’t question it. He wanted to do it and was sure, and I think it is a great situation for the kid. Coach McDermott is a great coach and they go to the tournament almost every year.” This is the first commitment for Creighton in the class, and it is an excellent start to their recruiting cycle.
