Tucker Haymond is the heart of Garfield’s basketball team. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard is an intriguing prospect. Haymond has a motor that doesn’t stop and is a player who is very coachable.
What Haymond brings to the court is intensity and passion. The Garfield Bulldog doesn’t take a play off and doesn’t back down to anybody. When you describe Haymond’s game you can say a lot. The 2013 guard can get to the rim and finish with contact, rebound, is very active on defense and is willing to sacrifice his body for the team. Haymond has a decent mid-range jump shot that extends to the three point line.
Schools have noticed Haymond’s talents and have shown interest. Washington, Washington State, San Diego State, Cal, Arizona, Portland State, Seattle University, Oregon State, BYU, Columbia, Yale, USF, Western Michigan, and Boise State have all been in contact with Haymond.
Western Michigan is the only school that Haymond holds an offer from. The Garfield Bulldogs are 1-1 right now. Haymond has scored 12 points in his first game and 25 in a losing effort against Beamer.
Expect a productive year out of Haymond. Left Coast Recruiting will be following Haymond’s recruiting closely.
