MEET Tyler Brause

Tyler came to Kentucky as a quarterback from Wynford High School where he was selected first team all-state by The Associated Press. As a senior, Tyler led his team to a 12-1 record and the third round of the playoffs. He was a dual-threat quarterback who completed 55.5 percent of his passes for 1,731 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior while rushing for 1,340 yards and 26 TDs. He also set school single-season and career records for completions, passing yards and touchdown passes. His stats are as follows; Completed 57.7 percent of his passes during his career, good for 5,519 yards and 56 touchdowns. Rushed for 2,259 yards and 40 TDs during his career. Tyler not only played quarterback but he was also a strong safety, kicker and punter.


Tyler Has contributed as a backup linebacker and on special teams. The 2011 season was his redshirt freshman season and he played in 11 games but mostly on special teams. In 2012 he played in nine games, including one start. He made four tackles against Louisville and had a pass breakup in the win over Kent State. Last season Tyler played in 11 games but again, mostly on special teams.


With the influx of talent that Coach Stoops and staff are bringing in, I wouldn’t expect to see Tyler move any higher on the depth chart at linebacker. There’s just too much young talent coming in that will provide much needed competition and he may get buried under.  I do expect him to continue to make an impact on special teams.
