In April 2009, despite a commitment to Louisville University, he chose to bypass not only college, but his senior year of high school as well.[4]

Professional career[edit]

Israel[edit]

On March 19, 2010, he parted ways with Maccabi due to personal matters and headed home to San Diego.[7][8] Tyler played just 10 games, averaging only 2.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per game.

Japan[edit]

On July 29, 2010, Tyler signed with the Tokyo Apache of Japan for the 2010–11 season.[9][10] In 33 games, he averaged 9.9 points on 51.7% shooting and 6.4 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per game. The Apache would dissolve soon after he left due to the impact of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.[11]
