“We are very pleased to have Tyler join our program,” said HU Head Coach Ty Platt. “Tyler’s work ethic, character and attention to detail will fit perfectly with our team both on and off the court. We feel his experience as both a player and coach at the college level will make a strong impact on our players and program.”
