Tyler's older sister is one of the best players at Delaware. The family also will be watching her compete this weekend.

MIKE SULLIVAN'S PREVIOUS EVALUATION REPORT:

When given the playing time, Tyler Harris is an effective swingman who had shown dramatic improvement in his individual game over the past year.

Harris is bigger, faster, smarter and more capable of producing points. He has quick feet, is nimble around the basket, and finds open spots on the floor to get off his short jumper.

As his consistency improves, we'll see a player being recruited by high division one programs. He is only a sophomore so he has another two and a half years to go before playing college basketball.

COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: Connecticut, Syracuse, Stony Brook, Fordham, St. Francis, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Duquesne, Fordham, Stony Brook.

FRANK MANTESTA'S AND MIKE SULLIVAN'S PREVIOUS EVALUATION:

STRENGTHS: Moves well without the basketball. He gives his guards a passing lane by finding the right spots to take his shot. He's quick near the rim too.

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: Consistency from the perimeter and gaining strength are the two areas Tyler is likely to work on before he graduates from Long Island Lutheran.
