Soph Big Man Has Big East School On List

Reporter Frank Mantesta has player profile update on sophomore big man ...

PLAYER PROFILE UPDATE: Jeremy Tyler

HEIGHT: 6-foot-11

WEIGHT: 220 Pounds

CLASS: 2010, A Current Sophomore

POSITION: Center

HIGH SCHOOL: San Diego High School (California)

PLACE OF EVALUATION: BARUCH IN NEW YORK CITY

COLLEGE INTERESTS: UCLA, Arizona, Southern California, Arizona State, Connecticut, and Stanford

STRENGTHS: Jeremy is a skilled shot blocker at very young age. He has a nice inside out game and is a strong rebounder

AREA OF IMPROVEMENT: Must mature emotionally and he's still a little raw with his post moves

EVALUATION: One look at Jeremy tells you he is going to be a terrific college player. At 6-foot-11, he already possesses a good perimeter game.

He has enough of a post game now to get by and will improve as he grows into his body. Tyler changes shots now and will only get better at that area of his game too.

In a recent game against Holy Cross of New York he had 25 points, 16 rebounds, and 5 blocks. On Monday at Baruch College against Cardozo, he was frustrated all game long, fouling out after being slapped with a technical for arguing on his fourth foul.

He is becoming a more efficient passer out of double teams too.
