It seems as though Alabama's newly minted "Bama Cuts" is working wonders with recruits.  The day after releasing another episode of the series, the Tide picked up a pair of four-star commitments for the 2019 class.

The first commitment of the day, four-star defensive lineman Rashad Cheny Jr., will be a bit over looked becasue the kid that followed with a commitment of his own brings with him a championship pedigree.

He's legendary Alabama head coach Bear Bryant's grandson.

Paul Tyson, a 4-star quarterback from Hewitt-Trussville High School will bring plenty of fanfare with him to Tuscaloosa with lineage like that.  

"Honestly it's just a huge honor." Tyson said to ABC33/40 in Tuscaloosa on Thursday following his commitment.  "It really does mean a lot to my family and really, just to know that he coached here and now I have a chance just to play on the field here at Alabama and maybe have another chance to win a national championship here just like he did is just a huge honor, it could be something really special."

Last year at Hewitt-Trussville Tyson completed 238-of-336 passes for 3,392 yards with 36 touchdowns and four interceptions, leading the Huskies to a second-straight 10-0 regular season and the second round of the Class 7A playoffs. Entering his senior season, he's currently a 4-star prospect and according to's composite rankings, is ranked the nation's No. 7 pro-style quarterback.
