Player: Tyler Lundblade
School: Greensboro Day
Coaches, it is easy to see what unsigned senior Tyler Lundblade can bring to the table. Making his way from Texas to now in North Carolina, playing at a high-level program like Greensboro Day, Lundblade has continued to show he can play and be a key piece for a college program at the next level. He has the size and skill set that translates to the next level, to go along with a tremendous IQ for the game. Lundblade understands how to operate within the offense, whether he can step out with his high release and knock down perimeter shots, or moving well without the ball, running the offense, and looking for high-quality shots around the rim; he is a three-level scorer. And I repeat, this young man is a competitor and a leader on the court. Watching him when he first came to North Carolina in open gym, that is a quality we immediately noticed with his play on the court.
Something has to be said about the production level he had in Texas, averaging 22.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.2 assists, shooting 54 percent inside, and 40 percent from behind the arc (236 made three-pointers in 3 years). And now bringing that to Greensboro Day and producing as well. The move also helped him develop and elevate his game.
“It helped me on the defensive end tremendously,” Lundblade told Phenom Hoops. “Day in and day out, I was guarding high-level guards and constantly improving on and off the ball. I think I’ve done a really good job of expanding my defensive ability to not only guard my position but anywhere from 2’s to 4’s. Offensively, it’s been a great year to continue to show my efficiency and my ability to make plays for others.”
Right now, Lundblade holds offers from schools like Cornell, FIU, Charlotte, and a few others and there are schools still showing interest. It will be interesting with the recruiting landscape on how everything will turn out and Lundblade is continuing to stay patient.
But this is an unsigned senior that has done everything and has a proven track record that can help a program at the next level. Size, versatility, smooth shot, great mentality, leadership, hard-worker, scoring, winning pedigree, and more… It is why he is one of the top unsigned seniors left remaining in North Carolina for the Class of 2021.
