Haws Will Follow In Father's Footsteps

After mulling over a couple of schools, Tyler Haws decided to cancel a few scheduled visits and commit to the same school his father played for.

Just like his father did from 1986-1990, Tyler Haws will play for the BYU Cougars. The senior-to-be made a commitment to Dave Rose and his staff on Wednesday, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

"After my visit, I just felt really comfortable down there," Haws told the paper. "I met with the dean of the business school and with some professors, and I just felt like I could have the same opportunities at BYU as I could at."

Although his decision ultimately came down to BYU and Stanford, he also took strong looks at Utah, Davidson and Harvard, as well as a host of other programs.

Last season Haws led Highland (Utah) Lone Peak to their second consecutive Class 5A state basketball title. He averaged nearly 21 points a game and was named the Class 5A MVP by the Salt Lake Tribune.

Haws joins a pair of big men - Nate Austin and Ian Harward - to make up BYU's 2009 recruiting class.
