How do you start off the 2021 class? Well, with a top 100 player. John Paul II small forward Jaylon Tyson became the first commit for the 2021 class.

Rivals’ Corey Evans spoke with Tyson about his commitment:

“I chose Texas Tech because, for one, they were the first to really believe in me and recruit me the hardest; I felt that I connected the most with the coaches there,” Tyson told “I loved the energy that was brought at every game I was at and lastly, I felt that how much effort and time they put into developing there players, really played a role.”

Evans previously spoke with Tyson, who said he averaged 24 points, 6 boards, and 2 assists this past year, and also noted that his father played football at Florida A&M.

Tyson is really a very long athlete and he’s so similar to what head coach Chris Beard recruits, long, rangy players who can guard multiple positions, he’s got a very nice outside shot and can draw out defenses, while he can also handle the ball out the outside and can drive and dribble. He’s a Micah Peavy and Chibuzo Agbo clone in a lot of respects. Peavy has a terrific dribble drive game, while I think Agbo is a bit more refined from the outside. I think Tyson is a combination of the two of them.

If you thought that Chris Beard was relaxing, well, you are wrong.

Jaylon, Welcome To Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
