Tyler Britton Preparing for Summer Showing; West Virginia On Itinerary

Rising senior Tyler Britton accompanied several teammates to West Virginia for spring practice, and the defensive end prospect is anxious to show what he can do during camps and his senior season.

Defensive end Tyler Britton  made the trip fron Reynoldsburg, Ohio to see the home of the West Virginia program, and while there was able to take in a practice.

“It was really beautiful scenery on the trip over,” he said of the eastern jaunt. “When we got here, it was even better. The campus is amazing, and the field is awesome. Everything is all right there at the stadium.”

A dedicated workout performer, Britton was also impressed with that aspect of WVU's setup.

“We saw all the new items in the weight room, and that was very good. I just really liked the area altogether.”

With interest from Indiana, Purdue and WVU, along with Cornell and Princeton, Britton has both athletic and academics backing his search for a college. He hopes that West Virginia will follow through with an offer, and he plans on camping at WVU this summer, where he will get to show his ability to Mountaineer defensive line coach Bruce Tall. He'll also work on assembling video from his early senior season performances.

“I'm just seeing where everything is going right now,” he said of the recruiting process. Britton also excels on special teams, and counts a “don't quit” attitude as one of the reasons for his success.

Britton started off his summer camp journey with a recent trip to Youngstown State.
