Tyler who also runs track and is a member of the Crockett High powerlifitng team had a solid junior season posting 1046 yards and 13 touchdowns in helping CHS to a 7-5 mark. When asked about his style of play Tabor described himself in this fashion, "I'm a downhill runner with good strength and I always get positive yards."
TCU leads the pack to land Tabor as he came away from the Horned Frogs Junior Day very impressed, "I really like the location and the fact that they have small classes," replied the Crockett RB. Arkansas, Baylor, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech are also in the mix to land Tabor.
Tyler also plans on attending at least two camps this summer along with playing some seven on seven for CHS. "Academics are big for me and campus location, those will be the two main things I look at when choosing a school," said Tabor when asked about what factors will play a role in deciding where he winds up.
Don't anticipate the recruiting process lasting much longer for the Crockett star as Tabor says he'd like to make a decision before the start of the 2008 season. As for 2008 Tyler has some big plans, "I really want to help us not only get past the second round of the playoffs but hopefully make a run at state. Personally I just want to help the team win, personal stats don't matter."
