Bear Bryant’s great-grandson, a top 2019 QB, will visit Kentucky

Back in April, Mark Stoops offered top 2019 quarterback Paul Tyson, the great-grandson of legendary Alabama and Kentucky coach Bear Bryant. Several months and major suitors later, Tyson said he plans to visit Kentucky this fall.

In an interview with Bleacher Report, Tyson, considered the 11th best pro-style quarterback in his class by Rivals, insisted that even though he spent his childhood going to Alabama games with his family, he’s not set on becoming a member of the Crimson Tide.

“It would definitely be awesome to play there,” Paul says. “I’ve watched so many games there, and playing on the same field would be really cool. But no one has put any pressure on me to play there. I want to go to the best place for me. I want to go somewhere I can win a national championship and where I’m the school’s No. 1 guy.”

One of those places could be Kentucky, where Bryant coached from 1946 to 1953. Tyson and his family have already visited Alabama, Duke and North Carolina State, and have trips to Kentucky, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee planned. That’s a very good thing, because in his first varsity start for Hewitt-Trussville on Friday, he went 19-24 for 285 yards and four touchdowns. Impressive.

If only there were a place where he could honor his great-grandfather’s memory AND be the number one guy. Hmm…

    And be the number one guy?

    Isn’t Jarren Williams in the 2018 class? And Hoak a RS Freshman this year? He would be in line behind them almost certainly

    He will do great at UK for 1 season, then transfer to Alabama, win 3 championships with undefeated seasons, set passing records and obtain a legendary status.

    If he doesn’t go to Bama ithe one and only reason would be he isn’t that level of a player.

    Yeah, the title thing might be a problem. Plus, him needing to be the #1 guy = entitled attitude. I hope I’m wrong and he comes here and tears it up.
