Tyler Alt was one of a good number of athletes from western Pennsylvania who travelled to San Antonio for the U.S. Army All-American combine in early January.
Alt earned honorable mention all-state honors this past season on the offensive side of the ball, after earning honorable mention all-state honors on the defensive side as a sophomore.
"It went good, it was fun," Alt said of his experience at the combine. "Ndamukong Suh was there. C.J. Spiller was there. Deaysean Rippy, Ian Park and a couple other guys I know from the WPIAL were there too.
"The competition was real good. I went up against the biggest guys there. I mainly did offense (in one-on-ones."
Since then, Alt has had a number of college coaches come by his school, some who have recently invited Alt to their junior day. Alt was at Maryland this past weekend.
"Duke came in to the school, coach (Greg) Gattuso from Maryland came into the school," Alt said. "Boston College, N.C. State, they both came in last week. Michigan State came by to see me, but that was the week I went to the U.S. Army Combine."
Alt does expect to go to Michigan State for an unofficial visit, as well as North Carolina, over the next couple of weeks. Alt also expects to visit Pitt soon, as he looks to get to know the new coaching staff.
"Well, I haven't met the coaches yet, but I'm going next Friday," Alt said. "I'm going to meet their new line coach and start talking to them. We'll see how it goes from there."
