Four-star hybrid linebacker Tylen Singleton
was on the road for a good chunk of the spring as one of the nation’s hardest-hitting defenders got a closer look at some contenders and took another step forward in figuring out what’s next.
Singleton, the On3 Industry Ranking’s
No. 11-ranked linebacker in the country out of the Northwest corner of The Boot, made visits back to LSU
. He also returned to Texas A&M
a bit earlier this spring and made his way to Tennessee
for the first time.
Singleton plans to take official visits to each of those schools, including four over the summer back to —Arkansas, TCU, Tennessee and Texas A&M. The Many (La.) High School state champion hybrid defender also intends to return to Baton Rouge, unofficially, in the summer before announcing his college decision.
Singleton’s first visit to Rocky Top moved the needle enough for the talented blue-chip defender to lock in an official visit this summer. Brian Jean-Mary
is leading the Vols’ charge for the hybrid defender and both he and Josh Heuepel
have quickly meshed with Singleton.
“The coaching staff personally showed me around the facility,” he said. “Coach Heuepel walked around with me and treated me like family. Everywhere I went, everybody knew me and they loved me and made me a top priority over there, and I loved that.”
Jean-Mary has been keeping his foot on the gas since the visit.
“I love him,” Singleton said of Tennessee’s linebackers coach. “I talk with Coach BJ every day. He comes down to my level and when we get talking about it can be about what I want to do now, what I want to do in the future, what I eat, what I do for fun, and when we talk about football it’s great, to be honest.”
