"He's a very fundamentally sound player," Stoneridge Head Coach Babacar Sy said after Tanner was named to the NEAA All-Tournament squad. "I was glad to see that we had a player like that in our program."
At times, Tanner will wear his heart on his sleeve. He often reacts demonstratively to a teammate's mistake and appears at times to bristle to suggestions made by coaches.
"No doubt about it, he can be coached," Sy said. "He's a very outgoing person, he'll tell you what he thinks, and that's fine with me. But he's not a knucklehead, he's just very emotional about the game."
UMass, James Madison, Texas El Paso and Missouri have shown interest in Tanner, with the first three mentioned having already offered scholarships.
"He hasn't taken any visits because he is waiting for his SAT score," Sy said. "My whole team took the SAT on Nov. 5."
Tanner will sign late, and we'll keep you posted as to his recruitment this winter.
