2016 Alabama QB Has Two Offers

Clay-Chalkville (AL) High School class of 2016 quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome has two received two offers.

  • Name: Tyrrell Pigrome
  • Classification: 2016
  • High School: Clay-Chalkville High School (Pinson, AL)
  • Position: Quarterback
  • HT: WT: 5-foot-10, 175
  • Scout.com Ranking: NR
  • Schools Of Interest: Florida, Middle Tennessee, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Purdue, Southern Miss

  • "I've received offers from Middle Tennessee, Southern Miss and UAB," said Pigrome. "Of course, the UAB offer is out now.

    "I received the UAB offer after our first or second game. Middle Tennessee came after the Florence game and the Southern Miss offer came during the middle of the season."

    The offers confirmed to him that he can play quarterback on the next level.

    "When I got offered by the three schools they said it was as a quarterback," said Pigrome. "Those offers showed me that the scouts know what I can do at the position that I play."

    Although he would like to play quarterback on the next level, he realizes his height might prevent some college coaches from offering him as a quarterback. Due to that, he is open to playing another position if the right opportunity presents itself.

    "I would like to play quarterback but I wouldn't mind playing slot receiver," said Pigrome.

    Like so many other 2016 recruits, he's now in the process of deciding which camps he will attend this coming summer.

    "I am probably going to a lot of camps this summer," said Pigrome. "Middle Tennessee and Southern Miss asked me to come to their camps. Purdue wants me to come there during the spring. And Florida also wants me to come there."

    Although he hasn't decided if he will camp at them, he's also interested in the other two Mississippi colleges, Mississippi State and Ole Miss, due to the type offenses they run.

    "I like how Mississippi State and Ole Miss run their offenses," said Pigrome. "I talked to the Ole Miss coach. He said they are looking at me at quarterback. He invited me to the Egg Bowl game but I didn't go. I texted him to make sure I was on the prospect list but he never got back with me."
