Michigan in Top Five for Marc Tyler
On Thursday, the 6-foot-0, 205-pound Tyler told GoBlueWolverine.com that his top five were USC, UCLA, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and Michigan. "I've been to USC, UCLA, Notre Dame, and Tennessee," he said, "I won't be going to any camps for combines because I really don't need to go. I'm open now and don't have any favorites. I'd like to decide at the U.S. Army game if I make it."
He added that his father isn't pushing him one way or the other. "All the schools I'm looking at, including Michigan, have top academics and top football programs," he said. "That's what I'm looking for."
While listing a top five, Tyler did add that South Carolina is also making an impression on him. "They're recruiting me and Jimmy (Clausen) hard," he said. "I really like Coach Spurrier."
The five-star talent rushed for 2,193 yards and 39 touchdowns as a junior. In the CIF Southern Section Division XI Championship game against Grace Brethren, a 49-0 Oaks Christian rout, Tyler scored six touchdowns, including five on the ground.
