Jeremy Tyler, a 6-foot-8, 240-pound power forward from San Diego H.S. in San Diego, California, is rated as the No. 9 player in the class of 2010 and the No. 4 power forward in the class. The five-star junior has apparently picked his new home, and he's headed to Louisville to play his college ball.
Tyler committed to Louisville.
Coach Ken Roy of San Diego H.S. confirmed to Cardinalsports.com Saturday evening that his star player had given a verbal commitment to Louisville.
Tyler made an unofficial visit to UofL in August and came away impressed with what he saw.
"It was amazing," Tyler said after the visit. "I've never seen anything like that. We went to the football game and saw all the fans there and how they treat their players. We talked to the coaches and saw how they treat everybody. It was a good trip."
Being a nationally-ranked recruit on a top-tier AAU program, Tyler had met several of the Louisville stars before.
"Earl (Clark), I know Earl and I'd talked to him before," Tyler said. "I know Terrence Williams and, of course, Samardo (Samuels). Samardo and I have met through AAU ball."
Now Tyler will get a chance to patrol the middle of the paint with Samuels in the future. Cardinalsports.com will have more on this story later this evening.
Tyler chose the Cardinals over offers from UCLA, Arizona, and others.
