Jeremy Tyler Taking Talent To Tokyo

by July 29, 2010

First Bob Hill decided to take over as coach of the Tokyo Apache. Now former high school sensation Jeremy Tyler is set to join him. Via the AP: “Former high school star Jeremy Tyler has signed with the Tokyo Apache of Japan’s professional basketball league…Tyler, who attended San Diego High School before leaving after his junior year, signed a one-year, $140,000 contract with Israeli team Maccabi Haifa in August 2009. He was the first American-born player to leave high school early to play professionally overseas. Some had seen Tyler as a potential No. 1 overall pick when he’s eligible for the NBA draft in 2011, but those projections have softened.”
