Former Mississippi State WR Tyrell Shavers announces transfer destination
After making two stops in the SEC, wide receiver Tyrell Shavers announced that he’s heading west for his next school.
Shavers, who played one season at Mississippi State after transferring from Alabama, announced on Friday that he’s now transferring to San Diego State to continue his career. He made the announcement with a hype video on Twitter.
During his time at Alabama from 2017-19, Shavers had one reception for 20 yards, which came on Nov. 23, 2019, against Western Carolina. He redshirted his first year in 2017, then mostly appeared on special teams the following two seasons.
That led to Shavers transferring to Mississippi State, where he played in four games this past season. Over that span, he had nine receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown. That lone score came in the Bulldogs’ season-opening win at LSU on Sept. 26, when Shavers had two catches for 68 yards.
In November, Shavers entered the NCAA transfer portal. And although he’s a graduate transfer, he has two more years of eligibility, should he decide to use both.
Shavers was a 4-star recruit out of Lewisville (Texas) High School in the 2017 class. He was the No. 12 wide receiver in the class, per the 247Sports Composite rankings, and he committed to Alabama on June 13, 2016.
A 6-foot-6, 205-pound receiver, Shavers will now try to earn a role with San Diego State moving forward.
