Arizona State will be adding another quarterback to the mix as Alabama transfer Paul Tyson indicated on social media today he is headed to Tempe.
Tyson, the great grandson of legendary coach Bear Bryant, was backup there, appearing in 13 games for the Crimson Tide over the last three years. He saw mop-up duty in 12 games the past season, completing 10-of-16 passes for 150 yards.
He entered the transfer portal Tuesday.

Tyson, a 6-foot-5, 228-pounder, was a 4-star recruit out of Hewitt-Trussville High School (Alabama) in 2018. He was rated the No. 12 pro-style quarterback and No. 12 player from the state of Alabama for that cycle, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite. He was named second-team All-State Class 7A selection in 2018.
The addition of Tyson means ASU will have five quarterbacks on its roster with Jayden Daniels coming back for a senior season. Also on the roster the past season were Trent Bourguet, who served as the understudy, Finn Collins and Daylin McLemore.
Tyson will be one of two newcomers. The other is Bennett Meredith, a pro-style prospect out of Hoover High School in Birmingham, Alabama who is already enrolled at ASU.
