Crater HS ATH Tyler Turituri (Central Point, OR) is a sleeper prospect that hopes to make a name for himself as the camp circuit begins next month. One school that is high on his list is Boise State as the Broncos have been in contact with him and want to evaluate him further at the camp in June. "I spoke to Coach Gregory," he said. "He basically told me that they're interested in me and he also spoke to my coach. They want me to come to their camp so they can see where I fit in at. They think I might be a good fit at LB," he added. Tyler plans on camping at Boise State, Oregon, Oregon State, and Air Force.

The family atmosphere at Boise State grabbed Turituri's attention. "I like the family atmosphere at Boise State," he stated. "It seems their players and coaches really care about each other. That's something I'd like to be a part of and they're very successful on top of that."

Crater HS currently competes in the 5-A classification, but that will change next year as they transition to 6-A. Tyler and his teammates finished with a record of 10-2 in 2009 and their goal this season is a state championship. "We're moving up to 6-A. We'll play five 6-A teams this year," he said. "We finished 10-2 last year and I want to win a state championship this year."

That solid 10-2 season came as no surprise to the Comets as their hard work and preparation paid off. "We were expecting to be good," Turituri said. "We workout five times a week year-round. It wasn't that much of a surprise that we got those results from working hard," he added.

Tyler (6'1, 217) played QB last year and he'll be making a transition to the defensive side of the ball this year as he will move to LB. "It won't be too much of a transition for me," he said. "I just want to get more fundamentally sound on defense during spring ball. I want to incorporate the other players into that as well and be a leader. That's my main goal."

Last season, Turituri racked up 1,200 yards passing and 18 TDs. He also added 600 yards and 6 rushing TDs on the ground.
