BYU Withdraws Offer to Tyndall

With 23 verbal commitments already received and less than two months to go until signing day, BYU coaches appear to be focusing their recruiting efforts on a few key prospects. One byproduct of the abundance of early commitments is the need to rescind offers from recruits who play a position at which the Cougars already filled their need.

A few weeks ago, John Tyndall was informed that he would not be able to attend BYU.

"They told me that all the scholarship spots would be filled," said Tyndall. "It's too bad because BYU has a good program, it's not that I wasn't interested."

Tyndall, a non-LDS linebacker prospect out of Pacific Grove, California, stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs 215 pounds. During his junior season, Tyndall was a first team all-state underclass selection at linebacker, recording 91 tackles and three sacks while rushing for 740 yards on 103 carries and scoring 10 touchdowns. Against Harbor, he rushed for 140 yards on 14 carries and five touchdowns.

Now that BYU is out of the ruling, he might be dressing in enemy colors next year.

"It was weird," said Tyndall. "Right after BYU offered, Utah had an offer almost right away. I will be setting up a visit with Utah pretty soon."

Tyndall has scholarship offers from Utah, Army, San Jose State and Westpoint University in New York.

Other schools he is hearing from who have not yet offered are Cal, Arizona State, Washington and Washington State. Cal is the over all leader, despite not having offered.
