Tyrell Lynch - 2007

sturdily built 6-foot-8, 220 pound power forward from Niagara Falls High School, Lynch is another high major target on a team that just keeps on winning. In addition to the Ballers’ exploits at the Summer Classic East at Fairleigh Dickinson in New Jersey, where they captured the title on Wednesday, Lynch helped himself at the recent Adidas Superstar Camp in Georgia.

“It went pretty well,” said Lynch. “I was ranked the number nine power forward at the camp. I think I performed well.”

“My top four right now is Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, and Georgia Tech,” said Lynch. “The schools that have offered me so far are Siena, Charlotte, St. Bonaventure, and Canisius.”

Lynch gave us some feedback on what appeals to him in program. Proximity to home was among the desired attributes.

“I like the idea of staying close to home,” said Lynch. “Academic programs and the basketball program (are both considerations).”

something about this guy stands out, i think one of his pictures make him look like Jermaine O’neal. With the need for big men, this guy needs to get talked about more.

His offers only include St. Bonaventure, Charlotte, Canisius, Siena; which may be a reason he isn’t talked about more. From his profile he does seem legit but other programs haven’t seen the same; obviously Lutz has!

On Scout, it also lists Georgia Tech, Pitt, and Syracuse as having high interest, though none have offered as of yet.

Apparenly he is going to head to prep school after this year so he will be in the class of 2007, not the class of 2006 as he is listed now.

He has multiple offers and his list of favorites include: Charlotte (offer), Georgia Tech, Pitt, Syracuse. He seems to like Syracuse a lot and Iowa St. is also in contact with him.

know which one?

Yes, there apparently are a few he is looking at.

Among that lot of prep schools are the South Kent School in Connecticut, the Patterson School in North Carolina, Notre Dame Prep in Massachusetts and Maine Central Institute (MCI).

His AAU coach (Jeff Bishop and the G.C. Ballers) have ties with two of those programs. Current G.C. Ballers Lazar Hayward (Marquette) and Paul Harris (Syracuse) are up at Notre Dame Prep, while Bishop’s son Dominic (now a junior at Creighton) attended MCI a few years back.

Just from the few things I have heard this kid looks like a pretty solid player. I hope we can add him to the list of commitments for 2007. Does anyone know which prep school is going to and if they play any games in the Charlotte area?

[b]Terrell Lynch, a 6-8 senior forward from Niagara Falls H.S. in upstate N.Y., is likely to reclassify for the 2007 class. Lynch was part of one of the summer's best AAU programs in the G.C. Ballers, but likely will start looking at prep schools next summer. Lynch is a very talented player, too. So he's likely to have plenty of Division I interest in his skills. Lynch plays on the same AAU team as Paul Harris (see above) and Lazar Hayward, who recently gave a commitment to Marquette. The athletic 240-pounder has improved his medium-range jumper. [b]Charlotte, Buffalo, and Rhode Island have offered[/b]. Depending upon how his next year goes, Lynch could also receive more high division one interest.[/b]

From Rivals this week:

[QUOTE]“I’ve always wanted to go to Syracuse. It’s been a dream of mine,” Lynch said. “It’s kind of crazy seeing the dream possibly coming a reality. Now that [prep teammates]Paul and Johnny are going there it’s pretty cool. I know I just need to keep focusing on my grades.”[/QUOTE]

'Cuse is showing serious interest. I’d downgrade this guy’s interest severely BLH.


As Tyrell Lynch plays out his senior campaign, one thing is certain.
The 6-8, 215 pound power forward from Niagara Falls (NY) H.S. has the ability to play at the mid to high Division I level, but academic hurdles will keep him from realizing that potential – for now.

“Tyrell is going to need to attend either prep school or junior college next year,” said Niagara Falls Head Coach Daniel Bazzani. “I haven’t talked to any prep schools yet.”

Bazzani’s former pupil at NFHS, Paul Harris, is currently starring at Notre Dame Prep in Fitchburg, Mass. He signed in the fall with Syracuse, and the Orange program along with Purdue have shown quite a bit of interest in Lynch, Bazzani said.

Lynch is a mobile and athletic big man with the ability to knock down midrange jumpers. He looked sharp recently at the 2006 Basketball City Shootout, collecting 14 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and two blocks as Niagara Falls beat up New Rochelle H.S., 84-59.

“His last two games have been his best games of the year,” Bazzani said. “He is playing the way I expected him to all year long.”

Playing with the G.C. Ballers last spring alongside such players as Harris, Lazar Hayward (Marquette) and Rob Garrison (UConn), Lynch didn’t get much of a chance to show what he could do.

Then, last July at the Reebok Summer Classic East in New Jersey, Lynch erupted, showcasing his athletic talent and shooting acumen from the power forward slot. He also helped the Ballers win their bracket of the Charlie Weber Fall Hoop Classic in September.

Now the question is, just what will Lynch do next year? Wherever he winds up, a number of Division I programs are sure to keep tabs on him.

He had / has offers from: Charlotte, Siena, Canisius, St. Bonaventure, and Buffalo. His offers surely will climb next year or the following year, depending if he goes to prep school or the juco route.

“He said he is eyeing Notre Dame Prep (Mass.) and Laurinburg (N.C.). Lynch said Providence, South Florida, Illinois, Syracuse and UNC-Charlotte are recruiting him now and will continue to next year when he is at prep school.”

Lynch is on the 2006 recruiters list on scout and we are the only with high interest to still have offered.

“If Tyrell can be more consistent he’s going to be a very good college basketball player,” Bishop said. "He is athletic and can run the floor like a guard."
Previously, Lynch had mentioned interest in Charlotte, Pittsburgh and Georgia Tech.
Lynch has the skills to knock down midrange jumpers. If his range is extended a few feet, he becomes an even more attractive recruit this summer on the AAU circuit.


I really wish we could get Lynch, we need a big.

Jeez, Kansas State is going after everyone that we are.

well mostly the ones delonte was recruiting

This young guy with designs on playing “three (small forward) and face up four (power forward)” in the future is a native son of Niagara Falls, NY
Tyrell indicated “I need to work on ball handling and my mid-range jumper” which will allow him to “work my way out to the perimeter”.

Are we recruiting ANY post players?


He’s heading to prep school next year (as we all know) and will be choosing from: the Patterson School, Notre Dame Prep, and Laurinburg.

The schools currently recruiting him the hardest right : Providence, Iowa State, Kansas State, Rhode Island, Charlotte, and Wyoming.
