Tylor Perry – Guard – 5’11 – University of North Texas
RIP to a short king (relative to basketball) that could’ve been a great Cardinal. About a month ago, Tylor Perry included Louisville in his final Top-8 schools.
It was exciting to see Louisville make it in the top-8 for the 2023 C-USA Player of the Year, but it quickly became clear Louisville wasn’t a serious contender, as Perry took visits to many of the schools on this list not named Louisville.
In the end, I guess it didn’t even matter if Louisville was on his Top-8 list because Perry ended up committing to Kansas State.
Could he be Markquis Nowell 2.0? I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Tylor Perry would’ve been an incredible addition to the team and a great replacement for El Ellis’s 18 PPG. But Louisville already has a point guard, and Perry is a little height challenged for Kenny Payne’s preferences. Not to mention he would have most likely come off the bench as Skyy Clark is set to be PG1.
