    Unfortunately, Corbin won't make the BYU team. We have Demarcus Harrison and 3 bigs coming into the program as well as Anson Winder who redshirted. We return Abouo, Hartsock, Davies, Rogers, Collingsworth, Anderson, and we have Carlino too. I don't see BYU taking this kid with all the talent that is already in Provo or coming into Provo next year.

    "Tyrell; Give BYU a shot"

    Congrats to him, seems like a great kid. Hope he goes to the U so Dad can see a lot of his games. Feel bad for the next few BYU PGs, all they'll hear is "Why aren't you Jimmer?", be worse than what the QBs in the 90s went thru.

    My guess is after the Davies thing any chance of Tyrell going to the Y ended, if there ever was a chance

    Why would Rose want to get lost in a one-bid backwater like the WCC? Milk a big contract out of Chris Hill (shouldn't be hard) and step up to the big league, son. Stew Morrill didn't strike while the iron was hot and look what happened to him.

    I don't believe UC Davis even offers athletic scholarships, I know they didnt in the past, but maybe they do now as a requirement to join the Big Sky conference. If he is this talented he would be smart to go big like the Y or the U. If he wants the best immediate opportunity to go to March madness he would pick the Y. The U is in a downward spiral.

    Great player. . . . and perhaps even more deserving than the 5 - A MVP who was my sentimental favorite! (I would have liked to see him win the award three years in a row!)

    Can he make the little "U" with his fingers? It is so cute.

    Corbin leads Utah into the Pac 12! Sounds great!

    On behalf of Ute fans everywhere, I would love to see you in a Ute uniform playing hard for us! You seem very level headed, very hard working, and very talented, and that is hard to find! I implore you, please come to Utah!

    Just imagine playing with either Tyler Haws or Kyle Collinsworth along with a great supporting cast which WILL include Brandon Davies and one of the best coaches in the NCAA. Immediate success, and close to home.

    Is Coach Rose being called on a mission or being made a general authority? otherwise, he'll be at BYU.

    Tyrell could change the Utah basketball program as they haven't had a real point gaurd there in 4-5 years. Coach Rose won't be at BYU much longer.

    It seems he see's his dad's attendance to games is important so I think Utah has a great change of getting him. I would love to see him in Crimson and Red playing in the PAC 12.

    We would love to have you up at the University of Utah.

    Tyrell; Give BYU a shot. You would be close to home and could contribute right away in a championship environment and actually compete in the NCAA tournament your first year out. You seem to be a kid who wouldn't be effected by living the BYU honor code, so go for it. You and DeMarcus Harrison could be quite a tandem for the Cougars. Think about it. Coach Rose will be happy to talk to you.

    Sounds like a great kid, the Utes could sure use him. I hope Utah's next coach takes a good hard look at him.

    Wonderful young man. He will have a terrific career at the next level. I'd love to see him wearing Prussian blue and white running the BYU offense, I wish him all the success in the world wherever he goes. Louisville would be a super opportunity in a great league, Arizona wasn't mentioned but I have to think Sean Miller has the Corbin's number. if he were my son the whole Utsh thing is real shaky......and UC Davis, maybe a good place to go if you wish to go to medical school, I didn't even know they fielded a basketball team.
    The only choice for Mr. Basketball, best of luck.

    I hope he'll pick the U, that would allow his Father to be able to catch a few of his games and enjoy Tyrell's college career with him a little.

    The Role of the Son of the Great Sports Father is always tough.

    The talking heads asked Jabbars Son what it was like to be compared to his father.

    He replaid No One Can Be Compared To My Father.

    Life for complete Jurneyman Jabbar was rough.

    Being in the Spot light of a famous person puts additional stress on you, weather it be Sports or Acting, and even the Church.

    A Church Pedagriee is Not always a good thing.

    Point here is that their are more Kids of Famous Sports Parents then there are jobs. It has to sort itself out.

    Jabbars Son is 6'4" and Jabber is 7'2" so right there was a huge difference.

    The up side is that you get good training and tips and none of this "your 1 and done so you do not have to worry about school".

    Waltons Son Plays Backup for L.A. and seems to have stuck as a 2nd stringer. no one is Bill Walton either.

    Their is some advantage but it must be proven on the court.

    Remember Jordon got cut in high school.

    Also if you get cut, you can walk on at a smaller school.

    Like the old fashion way, Tyrell has earned his kudos. The best to a great high school basketball player. Does anyone know what college he will attend?
