5-foot-11, 175 pound running back prospect Ronnie Tyler led Wagener-Salley to the second round of the playoffs last year as a junior. "I was hurt for three games. But I still had 16 touchdowns and over 1200 yards this season," Tyler told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

Tyler runs a 4.48 forty and he is waiting on his first offer. "I don't have any offers yet. Auburn, Georgia, North Carolina State and Wake Forest are showing interest," said the junior running back.

When asked who his current favorites are, Tyler responded, "I like Georgia. I like them a lot. I also like North Carolina State. I really like their offense."

The rising star already knows what he will be looking for as he looks at colleges next year. "I will be looking for a good education first and I also want to see how the coaching staff is. I think that's important. I will want to know what my role would be with whoever I sign with," said Tyler.

As far as the summer camp tour goes, Tyler will be basically looking to go to the schools that will be recruiting him.

"I'm not sure where I will camp this summer," said Tyler. "But I will try to camp at the schools that are showing the most interest." We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding running back from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2006.
