Arizona State quarterback reportedly enters the transfer portal
Arizona State’s quarterback room is starting to settle with the 2022 season coming to a close and the coaching staff taking shape.
Paul Tyson has reportedly entered the transfer portal. The former Alabama quarterback transferred to Arizona State last offseason and went through spring ball competing with Trenton Bourguet for the starting job.

After the spring, Arizona State added former Florida quarterback Emory Jones from the transfer portal. The three quarterbacks went through fall camp competing for the job, and Jones ultimately won out. With the offense sputtering, interim coach Shaun Aguano made the move from Jones to Bourguet.
Tyson did not attempt a pass this season for ASU. He was a regular reserve during his three years at Alabama as well.
The 6-foot-5 Tyson was relegated to mop-up duty with the Tide over the course of his time in Tuscaloosa. He threw 16 passes in 12 appearances in 2021, completing 10 of them for 150 yards. He did not attempt a pass in either of his first two seasons, appearing only once.
A Trussville, Alabama, native, Tyson joined Alabama as a blue-chip prospect out of the 2019 recruiting class. He was the 12th-ranked pro-style quarterback prospect in his class and the 321st player overall, according to the industry-generated 247 Composite.
He has two years of eligibility remaining.
