Tyler Relph, a sharp-shooting 6-0, 165 pound point guard from McQuaid Jesuit H.S. in Rochester, N.Y., has a number of high major programs courting him this spring.
Relph, who helped the Donyell Marshall Foundation reach the quarterfinals of the open division at this past weekend's Hoop Group/Converse Spring Jam Fest, said that he has been offered scholarships by Rhode Island and Hofstra thus far.
In addition to those programs, Relph said that St. Joe's, Northwestern, N.C. State, Texas, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Villanova, St. Louis and Northern Illinois are also on his early list of schools.
Relph and high school teammate Ryan Pettinella took unofficial visits to Rhode Island on Saturday, Apr. 6.
A terrific three point shooter with deep three point range, Relph is an old school point guard who sees the floor well and throws terrific outlet passes up the floor to open teammates. He does not have the explosive speed to blow past defenders, so his court vision is a big asset when it comes to dissecting a defense.
This past season at McQuaid Jesuit, Relph averaged 21 points, four rebounds, six assists and two steals per game. IR caught him in action at the Prime Time Shootout in Trenton, N.J., last February, and he put on an impressive long distance shooting display in a loss to Lincoln H.S. of Brooklyn, N.Y.
Relph said he holds an 83 average in the classroom, and will take the SAT for the first time in May.
Relph said he expects to attend the Nike All-American Camp in Indianapolis in July, then hop out to Las Vegas with the Donyell Marshall Foundation club for the adidas Big Time Tournament later in the month.
