Tyler breaks down junior season

Five-star 2010 center Jeremy Tyler of San Diego (CA) High School just wrapped up his junior season. With his season over, Tyler spoke with InsideTheVille.com about his season, questions about his attitude and the status of his commitment to Louisville.

Tyler had an extremely successful junior season, averaging over 31 points per game and double figure rebounds.

"I think I did pretty well this year. I showed up, worked hard and I think I got better this year. That is my goal is to get better every season," said Tyler. Unfortunately, Tyler's team came up short in the post-season losing to Torrey Pines (CA) in the divisional quarterfinals 59-52.

"You win some you lose some that is the way it goes. It was a tough game for me as well as the coaches. We had a lot of guys playing their first year of varsity ball. But those guys learned a lot and we will get better," said Tyler.

Tyler will be playing with the California Spring AAU program this summer. He says that he wants to continue to grow as a player in every way this summer.

"I want to continue to work on every part of my game. I want to work on everything both mental and physical. And I also want to work on my shot of course, but really everything," said Tyler.

Once considered a lock to stay out west, Tyler says his commitment to Louisville is solid.

"Everything has dropped off in my recruitment. I haven't had any coaches coming to see me or contacting the school. I am definitely solid in my commitment," says Tyler.

Tyler said he keeps a close eye on the Cardinals.

"I didn't get to see the (West Virginia) game but I did see the score," Tyler said. "I talk to the coaches every other day to find out what is happening with the guys and also what is happening with the school."

When it comes to pure talent, Tyler is one of the elite prospect in the Class of 2010. The knock on him has always been that he lets his emotions get the best of him and that could be an issue in the future.

"My passion comes because I want to win. And when I don't win it hurts so that is just my game. I am not going to switch up my game just because somebody says it doesn't look right," said Tyler. "I just want to win but I am going to control it (emotions). I am not going to let (emotions) take over, but they will be there."
