Meet 2014 FL WR Tyre Brady— Verbal Pledge To Kentucky
KBSN had the opportunity and pleasure of interviewing Tyre Brady, who just last week made the decision to give his verbal pledge to the University of Kentucky. During the last several days, while various opinions about Kentucky’s recruitment of Tyre Brady were being tossed out by writers on other sites, we here at KBSN were listening to the requests of the Big Blue Nation to know more about this baller from Dade County in South Florda. What did we decide? We decided to reach out to Tyre so that the BBN could learn more directly from him.
Unlike other sites, KBSN prefers to get its information and pass it on directly to you, the reader, absent the hype, opinion or agenda. You won’t find us getting into any of those “hating on others” diatribes on Twitter, nor delving off into some esoteric commentary as if we were pining for acceptance into MENSA. No, here at KBSN we like to get right into an interview to learn more directly from the athlete in question, and this interview from Tyre Brady is one we are certain that you will enjoy!
Patrick: What is your current height and playing weight?
Tyre: “I am 6’3″ and at 203 lbs right now.”
Patrick: Will you be playing only WR this year at South Dade, or will you also play a little defense?
Tyre: “In most of the games I’ll play only WR, but whenever my team needs me to play defense — I will.”
Patrick: Tell the Big Blue Nation about your game; you know what should they look for when you’re on the field?
Tyre: “History in the making! I’m an exciting player to watch; one who is a threat to score a touchdown whenever the ball is in my hands, whether it’s stretching the field or turning a spot or a slant into a 60 yard touchdown. When on the field, watch for my body control and my footwork; you won’t find that with most 6’3 WR’s. I’m also a physical and swift WR who just loves to win the jump balls.”
Patrick: How’s your 7-on-7 team doing this Summer; how did y’all do a couple of weeks ago in Tennessee?
Tyre: “I play for the South Florida Express, which is the best team in South Florida. A couple weeks ago I helped out a coach I know with his team, and we won it all.”
Patrick: Prior to your decision to cast your allegiance to Kentucky, did you have a top three or four and if so, who were they?
Tyre: “Yes, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Tennessee & Miami.”
Patrick: Tell us about your visit to UK; like what did you get to see of the campus and football facilities, and what was your impression?
Tyre: “I got a tour of the campus, the football facilities, and the future football dorms that are being built; I loved it. My impression overall was: ‘HOME.”
Patrick: What are some of the factors you looked at in helping you to find the right fit and ultimately decide on UK?
Tyre: “Trust was the most important because I have to play for a coaching staff that I trust. Then I looked at the academics because I’m a student first, then an athlete and getting my degree is very important. I love learning new things both in the classroom and on the field. Obviously learning new things makes you a better person and a better player. On the field, where that’s where Coach Mainord comes in that he will teach me to improve my game. I wanted to make sure I played for an offense that fits me best and no other offense fits me better than Coach Brown’s Air Raid offense. Lastly, the people at UK made me feel like family before I even became family.”
Patrick: Have you been able to interact with any of the current commits and gotten to know any of them in particular?
Tyre: “Oh yes; the other commits are like brothers. We all talk to each other and they welcomed me right in.”
Patrick: What did the UK coaching staff say about your game specifically during their recruitment of you?
Tyre: “That I’m a player maker; that I’m a big, physical and fast play maker.”
Patrick: What was the UK coaching staff’s reaction like to you telling them that you want to attend UK?
Tyre: “They were pumped up, making for one of the greatest experiences of my life; everybody around was just very excited.”
Patrick: Does the staff believe you can come in and make an impact right away?
Tyre: “Oh yes, it’s up to me to get up there and work hard and learn Coach Brown’s offense.”
Patrick: What things are you working on the most this Summer to improve your game?
Tyre: “I’m working on my routes and stacking. I’m focused on winning a state championship.”
Patrick: What are you Summer plans pertaining to football—camps, visits, 7-on-7 any of those?
Tyre: “Well I’m going to IMG nationals this weekend and that’s about it for now. I want to put a lot of work in with my team this Summer.”
Patrick: Will you still be open to looking at others schools, or are you going to shut things down to concentrate on being a part of the Class of 2014 at UK?
Tyre: “I’m Solid”.
Patrick: Do you have any 2014 or 2015 guys from Dade that you’re talking to about Kentucky with?
Tyre: “I’m talking with three stud athletes: 2014 WR CJ Worton who holds an offer from UK; 2014 ATH Mario Meizer; and also 2015 Doyle Grimes who is a 6’2″ 205 lbs DB/LB and has a brother who will be an incoming freshman at the University of Miami.”
Patrick: This upcoming school year is everything coming together for you there at South Dade in getting all the necessary classes that you need and everything?
Patrick: How are things looking for you and your team this upcoming year at South Dade—what’s the expectation for this coming year?
Tyre: “We’re getting down to business; the whole team working hard and we are all striving for that ring this coming year. Our expectations are high, as we feel we have the talent and the right coaches to win a state championship.”
Patrick: What would you like to say to the Big Blue Nation (BBN)?
Tyre: ” I want to say thank you to the BBN for welcoming me into the family. Big things are about to start happening at the University of Kentucky!”
