Bothell High’s Cameron Tyson selects Idaho for basketball


Cameron Tyson, a 6-foot-3 senior guard from Bothell (Washington) High School, said he will play basketball for Idaho next year.

Because his recruiting paperwork isn’t complete, UI athletic officials are not commenting on the announcement.

Tyson, an All-KingCo 4A first-team selection, averaged 26.6 points, five rebounds and 4.4 assists per game as a senior. He played on a team that finished 21-3.

Tyson also attracted attention from Oregon State, Washington State, Seattle University and Weber State. He said he chose the Vandals because “they were the first to recruit me, and they stayed interested in me through the whole process.”

Tyson plays shooting guard and point guard.

“They want me to come in and score the basketball,” Tyson said he heard from the Vandals during recruiting. “That would make me a two guard. But if they need me to play the one, I can.”

Perrion Callandret, another guard from Bothell, finished his career this year with the Vandals.

“He’s like one of my big brothers,” Tyson said. “He had really good feedback about Idaho.”

Tyson plans to attend summer school at Idaho. He is interested in majoring in forensic science or an allied discipline. Tyson’s older brother, D’Marques, played at Portland and graduated this year.
