Quoting the Coach:
"I've been a coach for 35 years and Tyler is, without a doubt, the best all-around football player I've ever coached. He's a tremendous athlete and a great leader who has sacrificed a lot in his career for the team. And besides football, however good he is at football, he's a better person and individual. He has always gone out of his way to help kids who might be less fortunate - it's one of the things we stress in our program. He's blessed with the talent and he knows not everybody else has the chance to play the game. Wake Forest got a steal.
"I think he'll do well with the transition. I know he loves the coaching staff, and [former NFL quarterback and Jupiter offensive coordinator] Eric Kresser really took Tyler's game to the next level last year on recognizing defenses. We really put a lot of pressure on him to make pre-snap reads. He's a kid that just has a great understanding of the game."
