QUICK BIO

Tyler Atkinson: Grayson High School Football – NUC 5 Star is the Perfect combination of Speed and Power !!!

Tyler Atkinson, a sophomore at Georgia powerhouse Grayson High School in Georgia, has recently been labeled with a five-star rating from NUC Sports.  He is now being mentioned with some of the top college football prospects in the 2026 class!

Atkinson is an extremely versatile player that can line up and play any LB/ EDGE position.  The modern day EDGE position is somewhat of a hybrid between Defensive End and Outside Linebacker. He has an excellent first step, coming off the line with both speed and power constantly creating knock back.  The 2026 prospect plays with a ridiculous motor chasing from sideline to sideline and finishing plays with extreme physicality.  Tyler is a quick twitch athlete using his athleticism to win his one on one matchups and continuously making play after play.

Tyler has been involved in athletics since he was a young child, and attributes much of his success to the hard work and dedication he put in while growing up. Once he entered High School he started seriously training and began to see more and more gains.  Named a Frosh All-American he accounted for 112 tackles, 22 for a loss, 24 QB hurries, 8 sacks, and 4 PBUs (pass break ups).  He is also the only 8th grader to ever be invited to the All-American Bowl!

Atkinson has always taken pride in being a major contributor to his team, but his work ethic and natural athletic ability are something that continue to develop.  The Frosh All-American proved himself to be a team leader and a reliable asset on and off the field for the Rams. The team has grown accustomed to him giving them that spark or big play when needed.

In terms of physical ability, Tyler at 6’3” 210 lbs is a natural athlete!  Additionally, his football IQ and understanding of angles are top-notch.  Each of these attributes have helped him earn his five-star rating from NUC Sports.

The 2026 prospect is now being recruited by some of the top college football programs in the country. His future looks bright, and it seems likely that he will gain even more recognition and success in the future.  Grayson has their next big time college guy in the making.

Off the field, Atkinson is a leader both in the locker room and in the community. He mentors younger students and is a constant role model for aspiring football players. He is also involved in a number of community outreach programs, and works hard to ensure a bright future for the communities he serves!
