Tyrek Tisdale continues to make national headlines. Last week, of course, he received some recognition when the staff from Blue-Grey Football made one of many nationwide stops on the Jersey Presentation Tour for high-profile players from the Class of 2016.
A few short hours ago, his name was in the news once again. This time around, the one-time Florida commit generated a buzz when he decided to open up the recruiting process after giving a pledge to the Gators in late March. Tisdale is back on the market.
The 6-1 and 200-pound athlete from Oak Ridge (FL) figures to be hot commodity moving forward. In the meantime, he plans to line up for the South vs. North at the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl on Jan. 9 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium.
Prior to Tisdale & Co. competing for bragging rights, a showdown between East vs. West will take place on Dec. 20 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. Then, it’s time for the finale: Blue vs. Grey on Jan. 16 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ Everbank Field.
“A player like Tisdale, you can put him anywhere on the field and feel comfortable that he’s going to get the job done,” said NFL veteran and Blue-Grey All-American Bowl coach Ken Stills. “He’s one of those difference-makers. A real game-changer.”
Tisdale first impressed our coaching staff of NFL veterans during June’s Blue-Grey Super Combine in Daytona Beach (FL). There, he took home the hardware as Offensive MVP following an effort that received rave reviews from all over the country.
Little, or nothing, has changed since. Tisdale still commands attention. Particularly when you consider the hype machine surrounding him after the recent recruiting development. Baylor, Georgia, Maryland and TCU are thought to now have an edge.
Before college, however, Tisdale still has some unfinished business. Specifically speaking, he hopes to make more national headlines with a memorable performance in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl. Given his track record, the chances are good.
