Hunter Tyson - 2018 - Committed to Clemson

Tyson is a 6’7 wing out of Piedmont HS, we offered him yesterday. Presumably it was Fancher watching him in Greensboro and extended the offer.

Tennessee offered yesterday as well.

Of course they did, Cincy is next.

This kid is gonna be sick. You cant teach that touch he has on his shot. If he is just a Sophmore in that video he is gonna be really good by the time he’s a senior. I hope we land him early.

[font=Roboto]no you can’t, but price can improve it! What then?[/font]

I would love to see us get this kid. I am a proud Piedmont HS grad, as is my wife and our kids (well, my daughter is and my son will soon be). Piedmont has produced lots of D1 baseball players, and a few D1 players in football, girls basketball and softball, soccer, etc. but to my knowledge we have never had one of our young men earn a full scholarship for basketball. We did just send one kid go to Harvard last year to play football though (a QB actually - Cameron Tripp) who may have had some low D1 basketball offers as well. He was ~6’6" iirc.
EDIT: Tripp had bball offers to The Citadel and West Point. Also, Monroe Enquirer confirmed today that Tyson would be Piedmont’s first ever D1 basketball signee. Tyson averaged ~19 points and 8 rebounds/game this past season-as a sophomore.

BTW, Hunter Tyson’s dad is the Principal at Piedmont HS (Dr. Jonathon Tyson) and played college basketball at Wingate U (D2).

Davidson offers.

Hunter was on campus today for an unofficial visit.

I know one of the coaches at Piedmont and he told me this kid is not only a player who can shot the eyes out of it, but a super kid as well.

Tyson is definitely is a 2018 we’re recruiting hard at this point.
