Tyler Fleming was born and raised in a town just south of Detroit called Monroe, Michigan. From a very early age he was introduced to sports with the help of his brother and the entire neighborhood he grew up in. Being the youngest of the group that he grew up and competed with, his determination and drive to succeed was tested early and often. During this time he fell in love with basketball and dedicated his life to playing professionally.
While enjoying similar success in soccer (Region Soccer Player of the Year and league MVP) his high school years were dedicated towards excelling and setting himself up for a college basketball career. Though he wasn’t satisfied with the options he had out of high school he decided to turn down some smaller offers and attend Western Michigan University as a student. This was a turning point in his life where he decided to rededicate himself to his childhood dream of playing basketball at the highest level. After 1 year at Western Michigan he left and attended Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, Michigan and became 2-time captain of the Hawks basketball program. From there, he parlayed his success into a scholarship to Tusculum College in Greeneville, Tennessee where he started for 2 years and was captain his senior year. Graduating in 2007 with a Business Management Degree, his ultimate goal was upon the horizon.
In the fall of 2007 he was signed professionally to travel and play on tour with The World Famous Harlem Globetrotters. For the next four and a half years he would be traveling around the world and performing at the highest level at such historic arenas such as Madison Square Garden. During this time he fell in love with show business and in late 2011 he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting and modeling.
