After receiving a few offers during the spring and summer, Tyler Spratt has now made his college commitment. The 6’5” guard of North Farmington High School (MI) and All Ohio Select picked Cleveland State and head coach Daniyal Robinson. 

Spratt chose the Vikings over his other offers coming from High Point, Robert Morris, and Wayne State. After being offered by Cleveland State in early June, he took a visit to the Ohio school later that month. “I felt as if I was at home with all the love I felt,” Spratt first said about his visit there. “Met very great people in the academic department, got. A lot closer with every coach individually and last but not least built a relationship with the players.”

There were a variety of factors that went into Spratt choosing Cleveland State though that home element from his visit played a key role in the decision. “The main thing I like about Cleveland State is that it feels like home. Also, I genuinely feel as if they have a real plan for me to become a better basketball player and young man. Another thing that I liked was when I was on my official visit, I met the mayor and the president of the school and when you get a warm welcome from them it’s hard not to consider that in making a decision.” 

Throughout this year, Spratt has been one of the top 2024 guards on the NY2LA Association with his play with All Ohio Select. The game of Spratt has continued to develop as he is a true two-way guard with a well-rounded skill set and positional size. “Cleveland State takes pride in defending and that is one of my favorite parts of my game,” he said about his game fitting in there. “Also, the level of intensity that they play at and practice at matches what I love to do. Offensively, they like to get up lots of shots and move at a fast pace.” 

Thursday was a big day for Cleveland State as not only did they receive a commitment from Spratt but a pair of others. They also received ones from guard Chaz Watson and forward Reece Robinson in their 2024 class.
