Former NY Forward Making Progress In South's Mike Sullivan has an update on a New Yorker who is making strides down South ...

For many players in the state of New York, sometimes it's best to get away and make some progress in other parts of the country. In the case of Tyrell Lynch, this was a good situation for him to make some strides both on and off the court by heading down South.

"It's a good place for him," said his AAU coach, Jeff Bishop of the GC Ballers. "Tyrell has a lot of talent. And the main thing for him was to make sure he improves is grades."

Lynch has had many great games for Bishop's elite AAU program. The GC Ballers usually play in most of the more competitive AAU events in the spring and summer. Lynch has been in many battles for Bishop too.

"He's going to be a very good player," said Bishop when discussing Lynch and his next step -- playing for Auburn in the SEC.

Currently, Lynch competes for Laurinburg Institute in North Carolina after having some training at at Niagara Falls High School in Niagara Falls, New York.

"He's doing well," Bishop said. "He's doing well on and off the court."

At 6-foot-8, Lynch has the ability to create matchup problems for most division one programs. Tyrell needs to understand a balanced approach offensively is the best receipe for his individual game.

Auburn had liked Lynch's game for a while, according to Bishop. So it was no surprise that Tyrell made his decision in favor of the SEC program.
