Bear Bryant’s legacy at Alabama could continue in the form of his great-grandson.
Paul Tyson, a 2019 4-star quarterback from Hewitt-Trussville High School (Trussville, Ala.), added an offer from the Crimson Tide on Friday night.
Tyson had a tremendous season for the Huskies. Tyson completed over 70 percent of his passes and threw for 3,392 yards, 36 touchdowns and just 4 interceptions.
Before he was offered, SEC Country did a deep dive into Tyson’s life as Bear Bryant’s great-grandson.
“It really is an honor just knowing that I can be a part of that because of who my great-grandfather is,” Paul said. “Walking down the halls where the coaches’ offices are means a lot to me because my great-grandfather coached there. I love that because it pushes me, even more, to work harder. I want my name to be as big and next to my great-grandfather’s somewhere. I want to be like him one day.”

Almost everyone in Tyson’s family has attended Alabama. But Tyson previously said that even if he was to get offered by the Tide, it wouldn’t mean that he would automatically commit to Alabama.
“I want to go wherever is the best place for me where I can help that team win a national championship,” Tyson said. “If Alabama was it, then that would be the school. It’s definitely not 100 percent the school I would go to automatically. People might think that, but I would keep my options open.”
