2003 Media Guide: Tyler Everett is a solid young defender who will be in the hunt for a starting spot at free safety this fall … finished up last year as the backup to All-American strong safety Mike Doss … played in 13 of the Buckeyes 14 games in 2002 (he did not play against Cincinnati) and finished the season with 12 tackles and an interception … the latter came against Washington State when he thwarted a fourth-quarter Cougar drive by picking off Jason Gesser at the 4-yard line … logged a season-high 11 minutes against the pass-minded Cougars and went on to play a total of 43 minutes during the year … is an extremely intelligent player with good ball skills and fine speed … plays with great confidence and is going to be an outstanding player … played cornerback in high school.

2002 Season: Made an early impression on the coaches with his athletic ability and physical style of play in fall camp and quickly assured himself of playing time by locking up a spot on the kickoff coverage unit … played three minutes in the season opener against Texas Tech, and followed that up with nine minutes against Kent State and 11 against Washington State … recorded his first collegiate tackle against Kent State and picked off his first interception against WSU … had three tackles against WSU and Indiana … earned his first letter.

2002 Media Guide: A first-team Division I Associated Press All-Ohio selection as a senior … played both running back and defensive back in high school, but will focus on defensive back at Ohio
State … considered one of the top two defensive back prospects in the state of Ohio this past year … demonstrated a nose for the ball, picking off five passes as a senior … rushed for over 1,300 yards as a junior … has the speed and quickness to play cornerback … joins former McKinley stars Kenny Peterson and Michael Doss at Ohio State this year … selected to play in the Ohio North-South All-Star Game and the Big 33 Game … is the son of Calvin and Audrea Everett … high school coach – John Miller … born Nov. 4, 1983.
