Defensive back prospect Tyler Coyle is a new name to the recruiting front for WVU but his performance during today’s camp caught the Mountaineers eye especially his position coach Joe DeForest.
Coyle, 6’2 195 lbs. prospect from Windsor High School (CT) took home an MVP award today after running a 4.43 40 time during the afternoon camp. After that impressive 40 time, safety coach Joe DeForest began to take notice in the talented prospect. ” I knew he loved me from the start when I ran that 4.43,” Coyle said after being asked about meeting DeForest this afternoon.
DeForest did let Coyle know that he sees him in a hybrid position similar to the role that KJ Dillon has in the Mountaineers current defense. “He said he can see me at Safety or a Hybrid position.” Coyle’s speed will allow him to cover the whole field which is a very important aspect to the 3-3-5 scheme for defensive backs.
Coyle doesn’t currently hold an offer from the Mountaineer but after today’s performance it shouldn’t be long before one is extended and Coyle is prepared. “I definitely do see my self coming back here for an official visit before I make my decision.”
