Tyler Relph, a high scoring 6-0 point guard from McQuaid Jesuit H.S. in Rochester, N.Y., did not play with the Knights this past weekend at the 10th Annual Metro Classic in South Orange, N.J.
According to McQuaid Jesuit Head Coach Joe Marchese, Relph was out at Northern Illinois University. Even without Relph, the Knights managed to make the elite eight of the 64-team tournament at Seton Hall University.
Marchese told the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com that Relph has been offered scholarships by Rhode Island and Northern Illinois thus far. Others showing serious interest include Seton Hall, West Virginia, Providence, N.C. State, Northwestern and Penn State.
Even though he didn't play this past weekend, Rivalshoops has had a couple of chances to scout Relph in the past few months. While he lacks an explosive gear to blow past defenders, Relph is a competent floor general with a terrific stroke from beyond the three point arc.
Relph has accepted an invitation to the Nike All-American Camp next month in Indianapolis, and then he will head out to the adidas Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas with Mickey Walker's Donyell Marshall Foundation program. He will also probably play with a local outfit later in the month at the AAU Nationals 17 and under in Florida.
