Bullard's Camp Tour Winding Down

Charlotte, North Carolina defensive tackle Tyler Bullard has been a busy prospect this summer. In between workouts, the 6'1, 286-pounder has attended camps at three schools, a Scout.com combine, and is heading to one more in the near future. Bullard spoke with DeaconSports about his summer and his recruiting process.

"Pretty much I've just been going to camps during the summer," Tyler Bullard said. "I've gone to Wake Forest, North Caorlina, Vanderbilt, and I'm planning on going to [the University of Richmond] later."

"I think I've performed pretty well," Bullard noted about his camp performances. "Just do your best and I try to go up against the best linemen there too. I try and go in there against the best guys they have so I can show the coaches what I can do."

While no schools have offered, Bullard is hoping he can impress more schools in his senior campaign. Still, he has one school he is leaning towards. "I'm leaning towards Carolina, but Wake is pretty high up there too because I like their campus," he said. "Wake Forest [hasn't offered many] D-linemen yet, they wait later in the year. They said they liked my performance at the camp and are watching film. As far as Carolina goes, I'd most likely walk-on with a chance to earn a scholarship. [In my top five] I'd probably have to put those two, U of R, Furman, and Cornell has been pretty interested too."

Although Bullard feels good about his camp experiences, he knows his senior season will be key to earning scholarship offers from programs around the region. Schools like winners, and Bullard has led Charlotte Catholic to an undefeated 2004 and hopes to do the same in 2005.

"I think we'll do pretty well," he said. "We'll probably surprise a lot of people. We were undefeated last year but we're moving to 3A/4A. We scrimmaged all the teams last year that we'll play this year and did really well."
