Tyler Best Picks C-USA School

Eastern Kentucky's loss is one Conference USA program's gain. Tyler Best, formerly committed to EKU, made another commitment on Wednesday and he plans on signing this spring. Best's school got interest after reading an article on this site about him.

Best To Charlotte

Lafayette (IN) Central Catholic forward Tyler Best committed to Charlotte on Wednesday. He made a visit to Charlotte last weekend and didn't waste much time in accepting the offer from the 49ers.

"He verballed last night," Ron Best, Tyler's dad said. "He said that he loved it down there. He loved the weather and the facility." Best is averaging 16 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. His ability to shoot the basketball should fit well in Bobby Lutz's system.

"We got the offer from your article," Best said. A few months ago on this site, we wrote that Best was uncommitted and looking around for a college. Shortly thereafter, the interest mounted so we are glad to help out. "Believe it or not, only four schools were recruiting him."

Bowling Green, Tulane and Western Michigan offered him.
