Fil-American high school forward Fletcher Tynen from Bishop Montgomery High School announced via Twitter that he had committed to Boston University.
Tynen is a versatile swingman with a high basketball IQ, who has played his high school ball for So. Cal powerhouse Bishop Montgomery.
Devin Ugland of PrepHoops.com said Tynen is “one of the most underrated and versatile high school basketball players in all of Southern California.”
According to Ugland, Tynen has stood out on the defensive end.
A key player on a Bishop Montgomery team that won the CIF State Championship a season ago, Tynen guarded 5-star players Marvin Bagley, Bol Bol and Jordan Brown during the playoff run.
Tynen told Ugland that BU likes how versatile he is. He also noted that Jones and his staff see growth and potential in his game.
Ugland mentioned that Tynen is underrated because of his unselfishness.
“Tynen is considered by some as one of the most under-appreciated players in the area because of his willingness to do the dirty work, while staying away from the flashy plays,” he said on PrepHoops.com.
Tynen is certainly a raw prospect, but one who could grow and develop into an all-conference player once he arrives on a college campus.
