During his time at Charlotte, Tyler was named a team captain for the 2021 season, where he accumulated 79 total tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Tyler talks about how the relationships with the staff was the reason he decided to come to Memphis. Head coach Ryan Silverfield is from Jacksonville, Florida where Tyler is also from. Tyler has worked with Ryan's nephew in Jacksonville during the offseason and Tyler shared how his relationship with Ryan opened the door for him to come to Memphis but his relationship with linebackers coach, Jordan Hankins, is what sealed the deal for him. Tyler shares how his transformation from a 180 pound cornerback in high school to a 220 pound linebacker in college has been beneficial because even as he put on weight during college, he was able to utilize his footwork and ball hawking abilities in the linebacker position. In the second segment, Tyler details how important the linebacker position is in the Tiger defense, and who he expects to play a strong role this year for the defense.

Redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Jacob Likes joins us in the latest episode of Off the Boards. Jacob is a native Memphian who played high school ball at Christian Brothers High School before committing and ultimately enrolling at the University of Memphis in 2019. Last year he started and played in 11 games at center for the first time in his career. Jacob talks about the importance of the offensive line and how, under the leadership of OL coach Jim Bridge, they have adopted a "5 fingers/1 fist" mentality where all the linemen learn and master all 5 positions on the offensive line. Jacob described the continuity and trust that was built in the offensive line from last year and how there play made it easier for the Tigers to introduce two freshmen, Seth Henigan and Brandon Thomas, into skill positions. The 2021 offensive line was anchored by Dylan Parham, and Jacob goes into detail about his experience playing with a lineman like Dylan who was the rock of that group. Jacob shared the message that the veteran players at Memphis relay to the incoming freshman and young guys on the team. He understands how most young players come in to college and believe that the transition will be easy for them, but he explains how every players has a "Welcome to Memphis" moment where they are introduced to college football at its highest level. Because all the veteran players have experienced that "Welcome to Memphis" moment they are ready to help the young guys dig in and grind and grow into the player that they were recruited to be. His call to action to those players is that they need to put their head down, follow directions and get better before they can expect to see the field in a productive role. In the second segment, Jacob talks about his recruitment while he was at CBHS. He describes how he felt pressure from some at CBHS to hold out for SEC offers, but decided to join the Tigers because of the relationship he built with Ryan Silverfield. He describes a desire that he had to not waste the time of any school that was recruiting him, and because his relationship with the staff at Memphis was so good, he made the decision to commit early on. He shares how much he enjoys playing at the Liberty Bowl since he grew up watching the Tigers as a kid.

In the latest episode of Ti20 Off the Boards, Lester Quinones joined Kenny after making the decision to forego his final year of college eligibility at Memphis and enter the NBA Draft. In the first segment, Lester goes into detail about his pre-draft workout visits with multiple NBA teams over the past few months. He shares how he came into the workouts ready to show what he could do for NBA teams and how he received really positive feedback from all the teams he worked out for. He describes how coaches and GMs were surprised by the level of shooting he displayed, but also how his facilitating and ball handling was a major part of what he showed during his workouts. He talks about the moment he knew he was ready to make the jump to the NBA was during workouts with guys that are rated higher in the draft than him and how he outplayed the majority of them during the team sessions. He says his play out there proved that his confidence in himself and that even though he knew he could be as good as the more highly sought after guys, the confidence that NBA decision makers showed in him was highly encouraging. In the second segment, Lester and Kenny go through Lester's three year career at the University of Memphis. While it was a productive three years, Lester's career was full of abnormal times. They talk about being a part of the 2019 class which was ranked #1 in the country, and how scary the team could have been if James Wiseman had played. Obviously with the postseason being cancelled because of the Covid pandemic and the suspension of James Wiseman the season did not go as expected. Lester shared how his versatility on the court during the 2021 season helped lead the Tigers to a NIT Championship. Lester shares how, as a veteran, he had to play a strong role in his junior year in 2022 to help the team come back from an up and down season. He specifically talks about his message to the team as they struggled through the dog days of the season, and how proud he was as the Tigers made a strong end of the year push and helped Penny Hardaway get to his first NCAA Tournament. Lester ends the podcast with a message of love for the city of Memphis and gratefulness for his time here.

In this episode of Off the Boards, sophomore running back Brandon Thomas joins us prior to the beginning of summer camp for 2022 Tiger football team. Brandon was a surprise star at the running back position for the Tigers as a true freshman in the 2021 season. Brandon came out of the gate with a strong first three games of the season, but as the Tigers struggled through the middle of the season, Brandon also showed ebbs and flows in his first season as a starter. In the first segment Brandon discusses coming to Memphis after experiencing a devastating hand injury. He shares his insight into the guts and resilience he showed to rehab through a near career ending injury. He explains the dark nights where he wondered if he would ever play football again, and how the Memphis staff kept in touch with him during his rehab. He explains how the birth of his daughter helped center him and made him realize how important being successful at football is now because he has more to take care of then just himself. He transitioned to talk about coming to Memphis and realizing how deep the Tiger history is at the running back position. He shares how his dealing with the hand injury and fight to get back to playing helped motivate him to shine when he got his chance. In the second segment Brandon shares some of the highs and lows he experienced during the 2021 season. He shares how devastating the concussions he experienced last year were to him because of how debilitating they were. He shares how these injuries were different than the hand injury because it wasn't just something you could fight through. He had no choice but to sit out. He mentions specifically how the Mississippi State game was a high for him because of the caliber of opponent and the efficiency of his production during that game. Brandon goes into great detail about the running back room and how tight the guys are. He dreams of the play where all 7 of the productive running backs are out on the field together, and shares how selfless all the guys are with each other. None of the guys care who gets the run as long as they are being productive. His excitement was evident as he talks about the creativity that new offensive coordinator Tim Cramsey has shown during spring football. He believes the Tigers are ready to make big moves during this 2022 season. About Off the Boards: Off the Boards is a video/audio segment where GT247 sits down with local and national sports figures.

Kao withdrew his name from the NBA pre-draft process on Monday, May 30th and immediately committed to play for Memphis in 2022. Kao played last year for UT Arlington after coming from Southwestern Assemblies of God, a NAIA school in Waxahachie, Texas. Kao has spent the summer going through the draft process and spoke about how much his confidence has grown after seeing his skill set match up against prospects with better credentials. Kao credits his coaching and willingness to work hard for his development over a relatively short period of time since he has started playing basketball. At the age of 13, Kao moved to Mesquite, Texas from western Nigeria after the devastating loss of his parents at an early age. Kao speaks about his goal driven mindset and how his resilience has allowed him to take tragedy and uncertainty in his life and turn it into a positive. He believes God has great purposes for him in athletics and believes that "everything happens for a reason." Kao details the conversations he has had with Penny Hardaway and describes his main goal of being the National DPOY for college basketball next year. On top of being a stalwart defender, Kao goes into great detail about his development in rebounding the ball and how a switch flipped in his brain last year on how to be a more effective rebounder at his position. Kao then describes his NBA pre-draft roommate, Lester Quinones, and how their relationship has developed during this summer. Kao spoke about playing with an elite point guard like Kendric Davis and the "pick your poison" decisions opposing defenses will have to make to stop the Tigers from scoring on fast breaks.

Welcome to the second episode of Tigers on Tap. Join the hosts, Trey Lasley and TJ Willis, as they break down the latest news in Tiger athletics from a fan's perspective. In the first segment of episode 2, Trey and TJ discuss the supposed quarterback "competition" during spring football between Seth Henigan and Grant Gunnell. They discuss their thoughts on how they believe QB1 was always Seth's job to lose, and how Seth proved himself worthy of continuing to build on his freshman year exploits where he was voted to the Freshman All-American team. Trey and TJ discuss how Tevin Carter is, more than likely, the second string quarterback, and how impressed they have been with him during spring ball. In the second segment, Trey and TJ go into great detail about the new plans for the Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium. The Tiger football introduced new renderings in a video under the Memphis Rising plans for Tiger athletics. TJ describes the renderings as the best possible scenario, and if the stadium is renovated to the depth that the renderings propose, the Simmons Bank Liberty Stadium will be the most beautiful stadium in all of college football. The guys push back against the criticism that the Tigers athletic department have received because they have moved away from an on campus stadium. In the third segment, the guys reiterate how Tiger fans should "Trust in Penny." After Kendric Davis' signing with the Tigers out of the transfer portal most Tiger fans were expecting a rush of signings to fill out the 2022-23 roster. Since that hasn't happened some fans are concerned about what Penny is doing on the recruiting trail. The guys go into detail on the status of Deandre Williams and Lester Quinones, and who they believe the Tigers might be targeting in the transfer portal.

In this episode of Ti20 Off the Boards, we are joined by Tiger redshirt sophomore, An'Darius Coffey. Most Tiger fans know An'Darius and the level of talent he brings to the field, but also know that injuries have played a major role in keeping him off the field during his two years at Memphis. In this episode, An'Darius goes into full detail about his injury and the fight mentally and emotionally he has had to endure to keep his mind positive. An'Darius opens up the first segment and talks about Winona, the small Mississippi town he grew up in, and how he chose to go down a path of using his talents on the field to expand his opportunities outside of Winona. He shares how he wants to be an inspiration to other young kids from the farms and factories in small town Mississippi to know that if they work hard anything can be possible. An'Darius then shares about his recruiting visit to Memphis and how the players were what sold him to come to Memphis. He specially talks about a "player panel" that veteran Tiger players do with recruits and how instrumental that was to help him know that Memphis was the school for him. He shares specifically how Jacobi Francis and JJ Russell were lifelines for him as he transitioned from high school football to the collegiate level, and how watching them develop their skillset during the offseason showed him how different the college game is compared to the high school game. He shares how he wants to become a "Jacobi Francis" and "JJ Russell" for the "young, hard-headed" kids that are new to the Tiger program so that their development will keep the Tigers becoming the team he believes they should be. In the second segment, An'Darius goes into great detail about his season-ending injury he experienced in the 2021 season, and the guilt he felt as he slowly recovered. When asked about how he stayed close to his team during his recovery, An'Darius shares an incredible story of how the team kept him engaged with them and encouraged him. An'Darius was adamant that he feels like the team helped pull him through his recovery more so than him pushing through. They would not allow him to dwell in the guilt he felt and An'Darius mentions how impactful that was for him. He explains how much he feels like he needs to prove on the field this year, and how exciting spring ball and the "Tiger Stripes" game was a huge relief to him as he was able to put on gear and compete with his brothers on the field for the first time in a long time. An'Darius closes out the episode expressing excitement about the new position that offensive coordinator, Tim Cramsey, has designed for him this year. He shares how Tiger fans can relate it to the positions Tony Pollard and Kenneth Gainwell played during their time at Memphis. He believes this position will give him the best opportunity to be an impact on the field for the Tigers this year and get them back to the championship level everyone believes they should be.

Standout senior DB Quindell Johnson joined lead digital content creator, Kenny Stubblefield, in this episode of Ti20 Off the Boards. Quindell and Kenny spend the first segment in this episode discussing last year's team and the individual grade that Quindell would give himself. Quindell shares some of his favorite plays and games from the 2021 season, and what part of the game is the hardest for physical defensive backs like himself. Quindell talks about the veteran leadership, both on the field and vocally, of former Tigers' Jacobi Francis and JJ Russell. He speaks on how their willingness to step up vocally helped the defensive grow on the field, and how he plans to fill that vocal role for the defense this year. In the second segment, Kenny brings up the elephant in the room, which is Quindell's decision to come back to Memphis for his senior year instead of declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft. Quindell goes into great detail about why he made the difficult choice of coming back and what his ultimate goals are for him individually and the Tigers as a team. Quindell gives a really great piece of insight into why the changeover in the defensive coordinator during the offseason did not affect his decision to come back to Memphis. He explains how he views having 4 defensive coordinators in 5 years during his time at Memphis, and how his base knowledge of football helps him take the good from each defensive coordinator and build on top of his vast knowledge he possesses. Quindell ends the interview answering questions from fans. About Off the Boards: Off the Boards is a video/audio segment where GT247 sits down with local and national sports figures.

In the first segment, Fowler was in Mobile for the Senior Bowl in early February and quickly fell in love with the Tiger players. He breaks down Calvin Austin's scouting report, impressions from his four year career at Memphis and why he thinks Calvin's skillset can make up for any physical disadvantages. Fowler shares his thoughts on where he believes Calvin will go in the draft, and what offensive scheme would best fit his skillset. In the second segment, Fowler then talks about the journey Dylan Parham took during his time at Memphis moving from the tight end position to ultimately becoming a stalwart offensive lineman. Fowler breaks down what part of Dylan's body will help him succeed in the NFL. He describes how his elite athleticism will help him in techniques that a lot of lineman struggle with. Fowler's biggest concern for Parham is his weight and shares that this is the only thing that will limit his productiveness on the field.
