Enrolled in the school's magnet program, he has a 4.525 adjusted grade point average and ranks in the top 5 percent of his senior class (No. 15 out of 319). A nominee for the National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-American Award, Tyner plans to major in mechanical engineering in college.
