Talented passing 2017 forward Tydus Verhoeven holds three offers

NEWARK, Calif. - Tydus Verhoeven's passing ability is getting him early scholarship offers. Here's the latest on the 2017 prospect's recruitment.

One of the top passers in California in the 2017 class comes from Manteca High School in Tydus Verhoeven.

The 6-foot-8, 205-pound forward is best from the high post, where his high level vision helps him find cutters for easy baskets.

“I look to be a playmaker,” Verhoeven said. “My size is an advantage of mine and I make plays for myself and my team. I can pass and play point forward.

“I’ve really improved my shooting and want to get better at everything. I want to be able to play point guard and the one through five.

Heading into his junior season, Verhoeven holds offers from Weber State, Nevada and Fresno State. He broke down what he likes about each program.

Weber State: “You can get a good education there. It’s a really good mid-major school.”

Nevada: “Basically my brother is going there (Kenny Wooten) and all those coaches up there are great. It’s a beautiful campus.”

Fresno State: “My mom and one of my cousins went there. It’s a good school. It would be a fun place to play.”

Verhoeven is looking for a college that can feature his versatility.

“I want a team that can spread it out and take advantage of my point guard abilities,” he said. “I also want a good campus and education.”
