Tyler Brause has the athleticism to play several positions on the field for the Wildcats. However according to his coach they Wildcats view him as a quarterback prospect. "He'll be a quarterback," said Moyer. "He's a duel threat kid. He can run or pass the ball. He's very intelligent. He's got a 4.0 grade point average," said Moyer.

"He's got to continue to improve his athleticism and work in the weight room. He's also got to work on his ability to throw the football," said Moyer.

Still with his 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame and 4.6 speed, he's got the physical attributes to fit into several roles, including the aforementioned quarterback spot.

Brause's statistics were impressive for his junior season where he threw for almost 1800 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also ran for almost 700 yards and 13 touchdowns. If those statistics impress you, then his first game statistics will definitely grab your attention.

Wynford defeated River Valley last Friday night 55-0. Brause accounted for six touchdowns - in the first half, seven total, including five tosses. One of those touchdowns was to another Kentucky commitment, Teven Eatmon.

It's easy to see why Brause received so much attention. He was offered scholarships by Stanford, Maryland, Iowa State and Syracuse. He also received interest from Purdue, Illinois and Ohio State before settling on the Wildcats.

Brause is a three-star prospect according to Scout.com.
