Bolingbrook 2019 combo guard Tyler Cochran made his commitment early on Friday morning.  He took his official visit to Northern Illinois this past weekend and a few days later pulled the trigger on his commitment to the Huskies.  He told PHI why!

“Loved the coaches, the campus, the teammates were a really HUGE part.  Just felt like the right decision.”

How does he see his game fitting in with his new team?

“I think I can contribute right away with my IQ.  Being able to get up the floor and shoot the ball.  Just being a good teammate through the good and bad.  More good than bad though!”

What does he bring to the table as a prospect?  Big and physical combo guard who plays best with the ball in his hands attacking downhill.  Uses his physicality to score or draw contact inside.  Consistently scores on and-1s.  Big time rebounder for his position.  Has potential as a perimeter shooter and just knows how to get stuff done!

Cochran joins fellow in-state commit Keenon Cole in the Huskies class.  The Bolingbrook senior guard is the #21 overall prospect and #7 point guard in the 2019 class!  He ran with Hoopers Basketball Club on the travel team circuit.
