Player pg 9 11-1-18

PUTNAM — Class of 2019 Guard Tyson Etienne is in his first year as Putnam Science Academy. The 6-foot, 2-inch guard from Englewood, N.J., made his way to PSA looking to upgrade his game and leave his mark as a Mustang. Etienne showed promise in the first scrimmage held at Putnam Science Academy knocking down five three-pointers to finish with 15 points against Redemption Christian Academy.
Etienne received multiple offers to play at the Division 1 level — more than 30 offers to be exact. He was able to cut his recruitment list down to six before making his final decision to join the Wichita State Shockers, a powerhouse team over the last decade in the American Athletic Conference.
So what made the city kid guard from New Jersey want to join Wichita State University in Kansas? “The moment I landed in Wichita I was pleasantly surprised. The campus vibe was great and talking with coach Gregg Marshall, they really want me there.” Etienne added, “They believe I can do big things for their program and I just felt the overall feel was great. The entrepreneurship program and academics is amazing and that’s the family that I want to be a part of.”
Etienne is the first Putnam Science Academy Mustang to commit to Wichita State. When asking Tyson about what type of player not only Wichita is getting but what Putnam Science Academy will have this year, said, “You’re getting a tough leader who will do whatever is needed for his team to win. When it comes down to skill, I can make plays and look to get better every day and I’m just grateful to be able to play this game.”  The Mustangs open up their season in the Bahamas competing in the Caribbean Tip- Off Classic this weekend.
