"Tyrell is a really athletic kid. A kid that has also played some quarterback for Lancaster, so he's a smart guy. He's very, very athletic, he runs the 110-meter high hurdles, too. He was recruited by a lot of people as potentially even a corner. We're going to play him at the outside receiver spot and I think that he has a huge upside at the receiver position."
