Paul Tyson picked Alabama.

The Hewitt-Trussville quarter is a four-star prospect. His decision to play football at the University of Alabama was expected--but it's not a "no-brainer".

Tyson, the great-grandson of Tide coaching legend Bear Bryant, has 18 scholarship offers according to the recruiting database on "247 Sports". That includes six different SEC schools.

The 6-foot-4, 217 pound Tyson has options and did his homework before making his decision.

"Really just two or three weeks ago," Tyson said on when he made up his mind. "Once Coach Saban, Coach Enos and Coach Key wanted me to go ahead and commit I was just blown away. I just really felt like it was time and I felt like this was home and I've been excited ever since."
