Snow CB prospect makes commitment

As one of the top JUCO cover-corners in the country, Snow's Ronald Tyler (5'11, 180) has had plenty of schools interested in what he brings to the table. spoke to the talented prospect recently and he updated us on which schools have offered and why he decided to end the recruiting process before the start of the season...

"I made a commitment to Utah State back in June," Tyler told "I liked the program and the staff there and my dad is a huge fan of Utah State, he likes the school and their program a lot, so that's the biggest reasons why I chose them."

In addition to his offer from Utah State, Tyler also had offers from Utah, Nevada and UNLV and he was getting quite a bit of interest from Kansas State and Auburn and his coaches had gotten a call from Alabama regarding his status.

"I just wanted to focus on my season and get ready for things," Tyler said when asked why he made such a quick decision. "When I got offered by them, I knew they were the school where I wanted to play."

As a freshman this past season for the Badgers, Tyler started every game except the opener and finished with 42 tackles, three interceptions and over 15 passes defensed.

With that productivity to go along with his ideal size and speed (4.39), he's one of the best defensive backs in the country, but he said that he's been working on a couple of different aspects to his game this summer.

"I've really been trying to stay humble and making sure I'm doing what I need to do and not getting too big of a head," Tyler said. "I've also been lifting and running more than I had ever done before, so I think it'll all pay off for me."

As far as when he will be able to sign, Tyler is looking to load up on credits this fall so that he can sign in December, but admitted he may have to wait until February.

"I have to take 17 credits and I'm not sure yet if I can get all of the classes," Tyler said. "I'm shooting for December, but if not then, then I will be able to get out in May."

Whenever he signs, Tyler will have three years to play two following the 2012 football season.

We will have more on Tyler after the season gets underway and we will update news on him as it happens.
