Tyler Thornton – (2010) 6-2, 180, Gonzaga HS Washington, DC – Tyler is a true PG ranked hin the top fifty players in the class of 2010. He is a hard nosed leader who loves to win. He is Josh Hairstons teammate for DC Assault on the AAU circuit. Thornton chose Duke over Georgetown, Stanford and Wake Forest.
