60 in 60: #23 Utah State’s Calvin Tyler Jr. (Running Back)
SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #23 is Utah State’s Calvin Tyler Jr. (RB).
Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).
“I thought he ran the ball very well for us the last few games of the season,” Utah State head coach Blake Anderson said of his running back. “His patience and his vision and the understanding of our system. We expect him to go into the season in the best shape of his life, really understanding what we are doing with a solid o-line. We expect him to be one of the best running backs in the league.”
