  • Scout’s Notes:

    Future150 Atlanta Camp (August 27th-28th, 2016): Thornton's high motor and strong finishes at the rim were on display like usual. His mid-range game has improved over the past year and he is a threat to knock down the jump shot out to around 12-15 feet. A frequent camper, Thornton continues to look like a solid low-major/mid-major four man at the next level. -Zac Lyon

    Future150 All American Camp-(Oct 10-11, 2015) Tyler is one of the players that every coach wants on his team.  He's a extremely hard worker and never gives up on a play.  His ability to rebound on both ends of the floor is something you don't see very often. Ball handling and the mid range jumper are attributes he contiues to work on. The hard work is starting pay off with him scoring on all three levels.  Overall he had a solid weekend.  Thornton informed us over the weekend he had recieved an offer from Texas Southern.

    The Summit Camp (May 31st- June 1st, 2014): Thornton continues to look like a promising prospect. His lefty touch around the basket is great and his mid-range game is hard to stop. He also showed he could rebound with other bigs.

    4/7/14: "Thornton has the potential to be a high-major big man. He has nice hands and a soft touch around the rim, as well as good footwork in the post. His mid-range shot needs to become more consistent, but he showed glimpses of being able to extend his game to 15 feet. He needs to continue to work on a go-to post move." - Garrett Tucker
