Hoops on Anderson: "Tyler will be another great addition to the team. When I noticed someone of his talent was still uncommitted and looking for a spot to play, I knew he would be a perfect fit for us, and he was very excited about Loyola as well. Tyler has a very good golf swing and a swing coach that has gotten many other college golfers ready for our level of competition. I am really excited to have an all-Chicagoland area recruiting class this fall. There is so much golf talent in this area, and we need to be sure all those future great players know that Loyola is a great option to achieve their goals both on and off the course."
