Former North Texas point guard Tylor Perry has eight schools he’s prioritizing more than the rest, he says, and three of the eight are from the Big 12. Baylor, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are all still in the major running for his services.
Along with the Bears, Cowboys and Red Raiders, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Louisville and Ole Miss remain among his suitors.
Perry is electric, and any of these eight teams would obviously be lucky to have him in their program. This past season, he was named the Conference USA Player of the Year while averaging 17.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game and shooting 43.7% from the field, including 41.3% from beyond the arc.
The National Invitation Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player, Perry carried the Mean Green to the NIT Title when the Mean Green took down UAB 68-61 in the event held in Las Vegas, Nev., for the first time. Perry’s other rewards are numerous. He was a two-time Conference USA First Team All-Conference selection, the 2022 Conference USA Sixth Man of the Year, 2022 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Classic MVP, and there are many more to name.
Perry appeared in 66 games over his two seasons in Denton, starting 36 of those. He averaged 15.3 points, 3.2 boards and 2.3 assists per contest.
And he’ll be bringing all of that production to another team soon. At the very least, a trio of Big 12 schools are closer to being that one.
