High school career[edit]

Haws played basketball at Lone Peak High School in Highland, Utah for four seasons, from 2005-2009. His sophomore year, he averaged 18.8 points per game, he led the state in free throws made with 129, and shot 81.6% from the free throw line, with the team winning the state championship. Following the state championship game, Haws was named the 5A State Tournament MVP and later won the 5A MVP Award. In 2007–08, playing in front of a national TV audience in the T-Mobile Invitational against Georgia's Centennial High School, Haws scored 26 points. He finished the season once again a state champion.[1] He won the Tournament MVP again as well as Utah's Mr. Basketball.

Three days later at home against Arizona State, Haws scored a team-high 17 points and added a team-high 11 rebounds to go with 3 assists in the 81-68 win.[18] After the game, BYU head coach Dave Rose said, "Tyler is such a consistent, energy kind of player. He always gives you the same effort. Tonight, the way (ASU) game-planned, there was going to be an open guy. Someone was going to have to step up and hit those shots." [18] In the following game at Fresno State, Haws scored 17 points again and added 4 rebounds. Haws said of his play and growing confidence in the college game, "I feel like every game I get a little more comfortable. I was able to knock down a few shots tonight and get a few rebounds for putbacks. I feel like it's going the right direction." [18] Haws scored a career high 24 points against Wyoming on January 20, 2010 [19] and grabbed a career high 11 rebounds in an 83-77 win on the road against UTEP.[20] Haws was named third team All-Mountain West Conference as a freshman [21] after averaging 26.4 minutes per game (third on the team) along with 11.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in 33 starts, the most by a BYU freshman under head coach Dave Rose.[22] His free-throw percentage of 91.7 was the fourth-highest for a freshman in NCAA Division I history.[23] He was also named Academic All-MWC.[24] In the Cougars first round NCAA Tournament game, Haws scored 8 points with 2 assists [25] and in the following game against Kansas State, he dropped in 14 with 3 rebounds.[25] During his first season at BYU, he also intensely studied the game of his then-junior superstar teammate Jimmer Fredette.[23]
