Surely, you're aware of who Bear Bryant is. The legendary Alabama football coach is one of the greatest coaches in the sport's history.
But did you know that he had a great-grandson? And that the great-grandson is one of the top quarterback recruits in the country?
Meet Paul Tyson, the great-grandson of the iconic college football recruits. He's a Trussville, Ala. native.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound quarterback is ranked the No. 7 pro-style QB in the 2019 class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings. He has offers from several major programs, including LSU, Michigan and Notre Dame.
Alabama offered him a scholarship in December. It was offered personally by Nick Saban. "I was actually down at Alabama, watching their bowl practice, and Coach [Nick] Saban walked over and said I’ve earned it, I’ve had a really good year and he was deciding to offer me,” Tyson said, per ESPN. “It definitely meant a lot to me. It was a big honor that it was coming from him personally.” Saban's program has 90 percent of the "Crystal Ball" predictions on 247Sports. Check it out:
A recruiting expert for SEC Country believes Tyson will eventually be Alabama's too. The Crimson Tide are also recruiting the younger brother of Tua Tagovailoa.
"I do think Alabama has a better chance at signing Tyson as of now. He has been to games at Bryant-Denny his entire life. His great-grandfather’s statue is right outside of the stadium that is partly named after him. He also has a teammate in 5-star tackle Pierce Quick who’s committed to the Tide.
Tyson has taken visits elsewhere but I think the family’s history is going to be too much for him to go anywhere other than Alabama," he reports.
