2015 Prospect Tyler French One To Watch

B.C. Rain High School in Mobile has one of the top athletes for the class of 2015 for the state of Alabama.

Mobile, Ala.--One of the top young football prospects in the state of Alabama who is getting better each week is B.C. Rain's athlete Tyler French.

Projected as a tight end or H-back in college, the 6-2, 235-pounder is just in his second year of football and is already drawing interest from several of the top programs in the country.

"I'm hearing from Auburn, USC, Arkansas, Florida State and South Alabama," French said. South Alabama has already offered.

French plays basketball at B.C. Rain High School and decided before his sophomore year to start playing football as well.

"I just didn't want to be in the stands," French said. "I wanted to be out there with the team."

French plays mostly slot receiver for the Red Raiders.

"You can never stop learning," he said. "They've got me playing tight end, but the way our offense is set up they've got me at tight end, slot and fullback."

French lines up at defensive end at times, but said he wants to stay on the offensive side of the ball in college.

Last week B.C. Rain fell to Vigor 28-0, but French gave the Vigor offense problems and was a concern during game preparation accord to head coach Ashley Johnson.

"He's a man," Johnson said. "Wherever he is, the ball is going that way. Either he's blocking, and they were to sometimes run speed option out on the perimeter. Because he can block so well our outside linebacker couldn't handle him.

"He's a 250-pound guy playing the number 2 receiver," Johnson continued. "They were throwing passing out to him and he's going to fall for five or six yards. He's a great player."

French camped at Auburn a couple of times last summer and said he is hoping to take upcoming visits to Auburn, Georgia, USC and Florida State.
