Class of 2019 quarterback Paul Tyson — the great grandson of legendary coach Bear Bryant — said Thursday morning that he has received a scholarship offer from the University of Kentucky.
Tyson — a 6-foot-4, 210-pound prospect — attends Hewitt-Trussville High School in Alabama, and he has received some recruiting interest from Alabama and Clemson, though his only previous scholarship offer came Wednesday from Jacksonville State.
Bryant coached at Kentucky from 1946-53 before later winning six national championships at Alabama.
