All State Sioux Falls Roosevelt point guard Tyler Feldkamp is a coach’s dream as he takes coaching like a leader should, executes like a leader would, and has athletic gifts that many wish they could have.
Tyler is a 5-foot-11 point guard on the court and a 180 pound wide open on the football field. College football programs are tracking Tyler with constant attention and it’s coming from schools in South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota. We think he could get similar attention from college basketball coaches when they get out and see him compete more (or dive into his game film).
The pandemic of the spring hasn’t slowed down Tyler’s drive to succeed.
“I’ve been working on my basketball game in the front yard on my hoop,” Tyler said. “For conditioning I’ve been working with different coaches and just going to the track with some buddies. In the classroom I’ve been really focused and getting my stuff done.”
If/When basketball resumes this summer Feldkamp will be playing on the court with a team of solid players in South Dakota.
“I’m playing with Schoolers 17u if we have summer ball but other wise I’m going to get some working in with some different coaches.”
What college athletic programs are regularly following Tyler?
“I’m hearing from some college coaches for b-ball but I don’t really count it as anything,” Tyler said. “I’m getting recruited by a lot of schools for football but I’ll name the most recent which is South Dakota State, South Dakota, Minnesota, North Dakota State, North Dakota, and Northern Iowa.”
That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes the schools calling on Feldkamp. He’s also started taking some visits.
“South Dakota State, Iowa State, South Dakota, I didn’t get a chance to for basketball and I couldn’t make it to couple visits because of the weather at the time,” Tyler explained.
And what is Tyler looking for in a school?
“For academics it needs to have a lot of options and do it at a high level, and for the style of play, a whatever to win mindset.”
