After working out at the Penn State Nike Camp last weekend, Tyler Alt picked up a few new techniques. Though it was just a few hours, it sounds like the coaches in attendance had an impact on him. He was runner-up for offensive line MVP honors, behind Penn Hills (PA) lineman Treyvon Hester.
"I didn't know what it was, I just knew we'd get to do one-one-ones and some drills at the very least," Alt said. "It was good practice for summer camps. It was very cool. I met a lot of the offensive line coaches, and one of the coaches, he played for the New England Patriots for 13 years. He's from Colorado, one of coolest coaches I've ever been around. Everyone could understand why he was a great coach.
"I did good in the drills, did good in the one-on-ones. I only lost one. It was at the end when they called me and Hester. He beat me on an inside move. I was the runner-up for the o-line, and I made the all-camp team."
Alt continues to hear from the Pitt coaching staff, as they would like to see him at one of their upcoming prospect camps.
"I went down there for spring practice," Alt added. "They said they're going to come in and see me at Greensburg too. Right now, that was probably my last combine. I'm focusing on narrowing down what prospect camps I'm going to go to. The schools that are interested in me, I'm interested in them."
