The 6-foot-7 wing is hoping to break into the 2023 NBA Draft. He’s not currently on Sam Vecenie’s 100-prospect big board for The Athletic but an invite to the Combine shows his stock is trending up. A chance to work out in front of scouts and share the court with some of the best of the best could go a long way.
Tyson spent 5 seasons with the Tigers, appearing in 140 games and starting in 58 of his final 59 outings. Last season, he was an All-ACC selection after averaging 15.3 points and 9.6 rebounds while shooting 48% from the field and 41% from the 3-point line.
The NBA Draft Combine runs May 15-21 in Chicago. This year’s draft takes place on June 22.
