Three-star wide receiver Tayvonn Kyle has verbally committed to Purdue. The 6-foot-0, 160 pound athlete can also play cornerback making him well-rounded on the field.

Kyle is from Valdosta, Georgia and he not only chose Purdue for the athletics but to gain a good education.

“I chose Purdue because it’s a great school for academics as well as football. I can connect with the program and my parents actually feel good about it,” said Kyle.

Growing up playing football, Kyle had the support of his family and a few celebrity athletes influenced his decision to play football.

“I was always active as a kid and I played a lot of football with family and friends,” said Kyle. “My mother and several football legends such as: Sean Taylor, Deion Sanders, Herschel Walker, and Dante Hall were an influence to play the game before me.”

With several recruits coming in to Purdue as wide receivers, Kyle has to work hard to make himself stand out.

“I try to outwork and outthink everyone else and stay on top of things,” Kyle explained. Doing “Speed and agility drills, being the size I am, I have to be able to escape defenders and create separation.”

Not only does Kyle play wide receiver, but he also has the ability to play cornerback as well. Since Purdue has several receivers who will be stepping up to play receiver next season, cornerback may be a good backup plan for Kyle.

“I want to play both but if it comes down to making a decision , I’d play receiver,” Kyle stated assertively.

Watch out Big Ten, Tayvonn Kyle is a well-rounded athlete who’s looking to score on the field and academically. His athletic prowess makes him a great asset for head coach Jeff Brohm.

Hi, I’m Sydney S. Tucker, a mass communications major at Purdue University. As a former athlete, I developed my passion for sports. I’ve always been the girl who participated in every sport in gym class. Becoming more competitive as I got to high school, I began to fall in love with sports. As a girl, my athletic abilities were always challenged. Until, I threw a football halfway down the field or scored a half-court shot. I know, cool right lol? In addition, I gained interests in all aspects of the media field. It was always like a tug-of-war trying to balance being an athlete and being involved on the side lines as a reporter in high school. Once I got to college, I decided to combine the two and that’s how I became an aspiring sports broadcaster.
