P-Hoops.blogspot.com: Greathouse, along with one or two other prospects at camp, had the highest ceiling of anyone in attendance because of his skill set, frame, and versatility. He has made a name for himself playing for one of the top AAU teams in the state, Spiece Select. He has had more college suitors as of late because he is so long and lanky and is versatile, with the ability to shoot it like a guard and the potential to be a mismatch in the post. He didn’t get to participate in 5-on-5 play since he was required to rest for his upcoming AAU tourney, but I got a great picture of his ability nonetheless. He has a ton going for him and is clearly a high-level talent, but there are a few things he can work on to make himself all the better. One would be his strength. He is very slight of frame, weighing in at only 190 pounds, and along with that, he also needs to improve his physical strength. His reach is impressive, at almost nine feet, but he could improve his explosive jumping (26″ vertical) to be an even more dynamic finisher above the rim. Tyler is a great kid with a great family and he will no doubt improve all his weaknesses, making him highly desirable for any college program.

ESPN.com: Greathouse is a power forward that is tough and welcomes contact in the post. He also has good skill and an excellent basketball IQ. He does a great job on the boards because he is active and competes for rebounds in and out of his area.
