Tyson Talks Notre Dame

July 13, 2017

After another visit to Notre Dame, Paul Tyson is already looking at a return trip to South Bend this fall.

“For sure,” the 2019 Alabama quarterback said.

“I’m going to try, especially for a game, but probably not for the rest of the summer.”

The 6-foot-4, 210-pounder was in town for Irish Invasion last month.

“It went good,” the Trussville, Ala., native said. “It was a lot of fun getting to compete and stuff. It was just a lot of fun being up there with the coaches and getting to see Coach (Chip) Long and them again.

“It was just a good time.”

Tyson didn’t get to show the Irish staff everything he can do on the field, but feels like he performed well when he could.

“We didn’t get to do much,” he acknowledged. “I think I did good in one-on-ones and stuff like that. They just really wanted to see me throw again I guess.”

The feedback he got was certainly positive.

“They said I did real good and they’re excited to see me in the season and they’re just going to keep looking at me,” he said.

The Hewitt-Trussville High School standout got even more positive feedback following camps at North Carolina State and Duke, leaving both schools with offers earlier this summer.

“It was great, especially for them being my first ACC offers,” he said. “It was fun. I got to throw in front of (Duke head coach David) Cutcliffe and the NC State staff. It was just a lot of fun.”

Tyson also has offers from schools like Army, Kentucky and UConn.

For now, his focus is back on getting ready for the high school season.

“I’m mainly working with our team on 7-on-7. Maybe during our off week I’ll go to a few camps.”
