New York prep forward commits to Drexel

Posted: November 06, 2013

Drexel's basketball team received an oral commitment from Tyshawn Myles, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound senior at Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School in New York.

Myles had received offers from Marshall and Long Island-Brooklyn, according to his coach, Josh Krinsky. The forward averaged 12 points, 12 rebounds and 5 blocked shots last season, Krinsky said.

"He is very athletic and can outrun other bigs," Krinsky said. "He is an excellent rebounder and rim protector and his offense is getting better but needs to improve."

Krinsky said Drexel coach Bruiser Flint made a favorable impression during the recruiting process.

"Drexel really seemed to make him a priority right away and never wavered," Krinsky said. "They were the first school to [make an] offer in April."

Myles is the third player to commit to Drexel, joining Roman Catholic guard Rashaan London and guard Sammy Mojica of Brimmer and May High in Massachusetts.

High school basketball recruits can begin singing letters of intent on Nov. 13.
