He’ll have weekly lessons on Wednesdays from 4pm to 8pm at the Leachville Gym. It's also helping to grow awareness of the Leachville Gym restoration project.

The A-State single season scoring king has had several looks at the next level. He participated in a Chicago Bulls predraft workout this summer along with the NBA G League Player Invitational. Ty is waiting for the next call to play pro hoops.
