“My dad really hasn’t said much about where he wants me to do,” said Tyler, from Oak Christian High School. “He wants me to look at the Bruins, but said he wouldn’t be upset if I didn’t go there. He likes USC a lot too. He just wants me to pick a school that is good for me. I don’t have a favorite…it’s just too early. Right now, my top eight are USC, Notre Dame, Michigan, Tennessee, South Carolina, UCLA, Oregon and Texas.

 

“Notre Dame offered me towards the end of December. I really respect their program a lot," said the Scout.com five-star ballcarrier. "Coach Charlie Weis is one of the best coaches in football and he’s really done a lot there. That program is definitely on the rise. Joe Montana, who's a friend of my dad's, went there and I’ve talked with him about the school and what a great campus it is. I’ve also talked with Coach (Michael) Haywood and Coach (Bernie) Parmalee a lot.

 

“I like USC a lot. They play with a lot of intensity. I talk with coaches (Pete) Carroll, (Steve) Sarkisian and (Todd) McNair all the time. Coach Carroll is a really cool guy. He has a lot of energy. They offered me right after Signing Day this year. I'm not ready to decide and I'm looking at schools all over. They said I’m a little Reggie Bush with my dad’s old moves. It’s close to my house, so I know the area. It’s also in my dad’s old neighborhood. I’m going to the USC Junior Day this Sunday (4/2).

 

“Michigan is another school I like," he said. "I don’t know a whole lot about the place. They’ve had a lot of great guys come out of there. Plus, Coach (Lloyd) Carr is such a great coach. It would be great to play for him. I want to take an official visit out there for sure so I can see for myself what they have to offer.

 

“Of course, UCLA is on my top list too,” he said. “With my dad going there, I grew up a UCLA fan. At first, I didn’t really want to go there. I didn’t want to follow in my dad’s footsteps. But the more I talked to the coaches, the more I realized how cool it would be to follow in his footsteps—to start where my dad left off. I mean, the fans are great and there are so many people that support me and want me to go there. The campus is in a beautiful neighborhood. I know a lot of the players already and all the coaches are great. They send me a lot of handwritten letters too. That’s pretty special.

 

“I really like Tennessee too. They were the first school to offer me at the end of my sophomore year. I’ve been there a lot because I have family there. I had the most fun there. It’s such a great school and city—it’s in the middle of everywhere. I love the fact that in the South they live for football. Football is everything to them. We’d walk down the street and people would be calling my name, it was great.

 

“South Carolina and Oregon both offered me and are both really good programs. I don’t really know much about the schools, but from all the contact I’ve had with the coaches, I would like to learn more about them,” Tyler said. “The Ducks are a really strong team that just seems to be getting better every year.

 

"As for South Carolina, I really like the coaches a lot. Also, my friend, Gary Gray (CB), just committed there. I’d like to take a visit out there soon.”

 

The Texas Longhorns are the only favorite which hasn't offered. “I’m interested in Texas. They too have such a dominant program. I haven’t talked with them much though."

 

Final JR (13-0) stats: 2196 rushing yards; 40 rec; 45 total TDs

 

Tyler reports a 2.5 core GPA/May 8 first-time ACT/SAT unset.

i dont know much about gpa's but isnt 2.5 like a C or something?i think hes leaning towards usc, notice how he says " I like USC a lot" and says about ND "I really respect their program a lot" to me that means hes got USC atop his list with ND second

At my school an A+ is the same as an A- ...........so the grading scale may be

 

A-4

B-3

C-2

D-1

F-0

 

 

 

so lets say he has 6 classes(just as an example) he would have 3 B's and 3 C's

 

 

 

 

 

ya it seems he wants to stay local but we should have a while to win him over.

they all like Gray but no way they (Clausen, Tyler, or any Big time recruit not from Carolina) go to S.Carolina, he made a huge mistake and I hope he learns that win we are going to BCS games and he is at home watching us on TV

Gentlemen, I am probably wrong here but isn't 2.5 not enough to make the cut with ND. Someone tell me either way. Because I really want to be able to talk with assurance that I actually know what I'm talking about...you guys can be tough ya know. HaHaHa

Do you guys really think we have a chance at Tyler? His coach seems to think he will stay on the West Coast and his grades seem suspect. While I would love to have him on board, I do not think he comes at the end of the day.

 

Also, I've always thought we were recruiting him as a LB right?

ok couple of points

 

1. his grades are fine, if ND extends a kid an offer that means he has been cleared by admissions

 

2. we are only recruiting him as a rb

 

3. he is not our only blue chip back choice, allen, saine, and rainey are all big time backs

 

4. I still hold to the fact ND has alot of things in its favor, one his buddy JC will be Irish, Only aldridge is in front of him, so early playing time is not a problem, while UCLA has a verb from a big time back already in this class and we know USC has a stable full of backs, also Weis has been on this kid for a long time, and knowing his dad was a NFL player the NFL is going to be important to this kid and im sure Weis is telling him in this offense with Jimmy at QB and the WR prosepects going to verb (cough Benn cough) he could be a star...alot easier to run when they can't load the box ask peterson at oklahoma about that

 

Do not count Tyler out as Irish, I do not think its a given yet, atleast I havent heard about him from my sources as having given his silent, but I woudl say right now we are in a good position and things are far from over...but never forget there is always a back up plan and a backup plan for that backup plan...no worries there will be some big time backs in this class, I would say we land one of Allen, Tyler, Saine, or Rainey

Rontd is on the ball and correct. :)

 

You guys are blinded by that field skill.

 

2.5 even 2.7 as Weis mentioned in a Presser is LOW LOW for ND.

 

That's papers to Admissions, "do you think this guy can qualify and pass ND courses?" More papers for Weis. Arrange costly tutors perhaps. Weis said more or less they will turn down most of them, which is a right thing to do. We accept few border line grades. 2.5 is as border as it can be.

 

It's no ones fault but the kids that his grades stink and he can apply at Ohio State and be accepted, ahahaahah Or USC. :lol: Welcome to the real world son get an education those NFL bums who make bucks but cant even read are getting fewer and fewer.

Let's face it. Notre dame has "relaxed" their standards to accomodate recruitng these guys. Come on. Who gives a crap if they are freaking idiots as long as we win games. I'm so sick of hearing this pious BS. You know what they call the guy who graduates last in medical school? That's right. Dr! The reality is that ND needs speed and talent. Not all speed and talent carries a higher GPA. Sometimes you have to remember that the University makes a boat load of money from Football. Alumni want to win. I want to win. So, as long as the coaches recruit guys of decent moral character. I don't care if they even graduate. I want to win. I will also defend my position of giving kids a time limit on scholarships. In business ,as in football, you are there to make a profit. When you don't make profit, you go out of business. ND football is business. Period. Treat it like a business and it will respond as such. Blah blah blah. Amateur sports. Tell that to the networks, who pay millions to televise our games.

Notre Dame has not relaxed its standards, except with the early admission thing. I used to work in sports info and saw the scores and grades these guys had...not stellar. Hell, we offered Kelly Baraka who wasn't a genius on paper or in general, so to say we have relaxed our standards is probably not accurate...the standards have never been as high as touted. I think that the academic performance of our players leads us to believe that, but I think that can be attributed to hard work both on and off the field. Not to say we don't have our share of intelligent players, though...ie Jabari Holloway, Brandon Hoyte, etc.

Well we're talking about Notre Dame academics, and you all know I need to be heard so here goes:

 

Chiro, ND's admission standards have always been exagerrated. The point that's constantly made is similar to your doctor comment. Notre Dame pride's itself on being able to provide enough support staff that while being difficult and rigorous, it prepares people for life and gives them a degree they earned.

 

However, I do disagree about your comment that standards need(ed) to be lowered to get the fastest strongest athletes. There are currently 119 DI teams each with about 80 scholarship players. That's almost 10,000 football players. Give me the top 25% of those kids intelligence wise and I'd be able to assemble an amazing team. Unfortunately we're not getting the pick of the litter regarding smart kids. While we do get a few, some of those kids end up at Stanford, Northwestern, BC, and even less difficult schools. Basically, we needed to find a better way to sell ourselves, which I think Charlie can do.

From the scout ticker:

 

"Washington, Colorado, Nebraska and Clemson have joined the contest for Woodland Hills (Calif.) running back Marc Tyler (6-0, 214, 4.55)—all offering this week except for the Tigers, who offered at the beginning of April. The Scout.com five-star runner from Oak Christian High School said that USC and Notre Dame are his slight favorites.

“Right now, USC and Notre Dame are my top schools. I’m going to Notre Dame this Thursday with my dad (former UCLA and Los Angeles Rams star running back Wendell Tyler). We’re going to the spring game on Saturday,” Tyler said. This is the first time my dad’s going with me so it’s going to be fun. We’re going to talk to Coach (Charlie) Weis. My dad’s going to do all the work…he’s got some questions for them. This will be my third visit. I went out there for their junior day and again for the game against USC last season. I really like the campus. It’s probably my favorite along with Tennessee. They are a great academic school too.

 

“My dad also went with me to the USC Junior Day on April 2. We really liked it. My dad liked the coaches and the facilities. I’m really familiar with the school because it’s so close to my house. Plus, with my Dad going to UCLA, I’ve watched the Trojans play for a long time."

 

Tyler’s growing offer list now includes Notre Dame, USC, Michigan, UCLA, South Carolina, Mississippi, Clemson, Washington, Tennessee, Oregon, Nebraska and Colorado. He denies any time frame for a decision.

 

“I talk to USC, Notre Dame and Mississippi the most. They’re all recruiting me really hard."

 

Tyler reports a 2.5 core GPA/May 8 first-time ACT/SAT."

 

--This weekend is very important in terms of his recruitment since his dad is going to be there. From this article it doesn't sound like he'll be committing this weekend. Chiro what's the latest?
