Bishop: Lynch Will Do Well In The SEC

Reporter Mike Sullivan has an interview with GC Ballers head coach Jeff Bishop ...

It was a change of mentality that helped Tyrell Lynch in his recruiting process. Lynch, a 6-foot-8 forward who competed for the GC Ballers during the summer, was trying to groom his game for the small forward slot.

However, GC Ballers head coach Jeff Bishop said Lynch realized where his strength was. "It was as a power forward," Bishop said. "Tyrell realized he was a power forward right now and not a small forward."

Lynch is a very talented player. He had an opportunity over the past few years to play with such players like Paul Harris, Johnny Flynn, and Lazar Hayward for the GC Ballers AAU team. "He's going to be a very good player in the SEC," Bishop said. "He has a lot of talent."

Lynch made a commitment to Auburn recently. Bishop said he wasn't surprised. "They liked him all along," Bishop stated. "They were involved for a long time. It's a great conference for Tyrell to play in."

For Tyrell, and like most high school players, understanding the value of their strengths is very important in making an impact on the college level.

Certainly, during practice time especially, players like Lynch will continue to improve all skill aspects. But realizing how you can contribute to a program will likely determine the length on one player's playing time.
