After offering dual-threat 2020 quarterback Evan Prater a few weeks ago, Sean Gleeson has now offered his second quarterback as Oklahoma State’s offensive coordinator. Suffield Academy pro-style quarterback Tyler Van Dyke announced via Twitter last night that he had received an offer from the Cowboys.
The 2020 prospect holds a long list of offers, including schools such as Cal, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, N.C. State and Wisconsin. Van Dyke is receiving interest from multiple schools like North Carolina, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee and West Virginia. There are currently two 247Sports crystal ball predictions for the Connecticut native, both are from January 2019 and are in favor of Wisconsin. There is one expert forecast pick on Rivals.com, which has Van Dyke rated as a four-star prospect, and it also has Van Dyke landing with the Badgers.
As mentioned above, Van Dyke is more of a pro-style quarterback than Prater. He has an incredibly strong arm (see video below), which he also showcases on the baseball field as a pitcher, and is very accurate on a wide variety of throws.
The Suffield Academy product also throws well on the run and has great size at 6-4, 212 pounds. In addition, even though he’s listed as a pro-style QB, that doesn’t mean he isn’t mobile. Van Dyke ran a 4.75 40-yard dash at an Ohio State camp.
He finished his junior season with 1,899 passing yards, 14 passing touchdowns and five interceptions with a 57.1 percent completion percentage. Additionally, he ran for 105 yards and one touchdown.
Van Dyke recently told 247Sports that his plan right now is to make a commitment in April or May, but also added that he could move it back if he’s not ready. All signs are pointing to Wisconsin at the moment, but Oklahoma State might be able to make some noise in the recruitment of the talented quarterback.
His highlight video from last season is shown below.
