Tyrell Ajian is a 6’1″, 185 pound Athlete from Mansfield, Ohio. Tyrell is considered a 4* recruit who is rated as the 82nd best recruit in the nation according to ESPN, the 8th ranked Safety in the nation. According to 247Sports he is rated as the 150th best recruit in the nation, 13th rated Athlete, and 8th best player out of the state of Ohio. While he is very capable of playing both sides of the ball at the next level I expect him to end up on the defensive side at the collegiate level. Tyrell has the speed and size to play either offense or defense in college and many teams are looking at him as a possibility on either side.
Tyrell currently holds 14 scholarship offers with plenty more on the way without doubt. Some of those offers include our own Kentucky Wildcats. Some others who have offered are Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Nebraska, and Pittsburgh. I would be very surprised if Penn State, Indiana, and Ohio State don’t come beating down his door or ringing his phone off the hook to extend offers themselves.
Vince Marrow has been the lead recruiter for Tyrell on the Kentucky Wildcats behalf. In the end I believe this will be a four team race to land his services between Kentucky, Ohio State, Notre Dame, and Michigan State. I think you will end up seeing Tyrell in Kentucky gear on Saturday’s but the Cats will have to fight off the other 3 teams I mentioned to do so. This is certainly a recruitment the Big Blue Nation will want to keep an eye on.
