York Gets A Big Steal In Daniel Tulloch
Published by Gilbert Muako on March 1, 2012
Despite yet another disappointing season, the York University Lions are looking upwards and moving towards the right path. On this past Tuesday, the Lions made a big stride. 6-foot-6 combo forward Daniel Tulloch informed CROWN he had committed to the Lions.
Tulloch is probably the biggest sleeper in the 2012 class, who went extremely under the radar attending Glen Forest high school playing on their tier two level squad in the Peel Region. York did their homework and snagged the biggest steal in the 2012 class.
We first laid our eyes on Tulloch mid-February where he wowed us while dominating the SBA Shoot Out. Talking to Tulloch he made it no secret that he would commit to the Lions sooner than later.
“I really like the coaches there, got to know them better than the other coaches, just a good family feel there,” said Tulloch.
Tulloch sees promise and an opportunity to come in and help build the program.
“I watched them play like 2, 3 times…watched the way they play and I know where I can fit in. When they bring in the new recruits, they already have talented guards, plus myself and over the years when that team chemistry is built we’ll be one of the top contenders in the country, that’s how I honestly feel.”
This is a great pick up for York, Tulloch is easily a top 40 prospect in a deep 2012 class. He’ll have a huge impact on the program from day one and will open a lot of eyes at the CIS level. He is 6-foot-6, 215 pounds with great strength and athleticism, has the ability to handle a bit and knock down open looks all over the floor.
Ryerson, Windsor and McMaster were the only other schools aware of this big time sleeper.
“It works better in my favor, the fact people don’t know about me, then when they see me play their eyes get open…it works for me.”
