Tyler Koch to Wright State

Dylan Burkhardt

Another recruit off the board, this one is 09 Tyler Koch who’s name had been thrown around a little bit lately. Koch committed to Wright State today. This is a fun time for 09 recruiting as there is lots of new names thrown around and being evaluated. At this point Wright was probably a plan b or c level recruit and there will be more names on the board as the summer progresses. Thanks to reader jrees for the tip.

“Everything it had to offer I liked,” said Koch, who has led the Golden Falcons to two consecutive Class 2A state runner-up finishes. “The location, the coaches, the academics, the size of the school. Everything.”

Michigan had not extended an offer to Koch, but Wolverines head coach John Beilein visited Winchester last week to watch the junior work out.

“In the end, the decision just came to me,” Koch said. “Being from a small town kid, I didn’t think I could see myself in a big school type of environment. Wright State isn’t too big or too small.”

    I think Brownell’s a heck of a coach. He’s also an Indiana native.
