ESPN 150 RB brings abundance of speed
June, 26, 2012

Oregon's first commitment for the class of 2013 came from a local star who could become one of the most important recruits in school history. Oregon is built on speed and getting its stars into space, so it made sense for a local running back to make his pledge to the Ducks. It isn't too often the state of Oregon produces an ESPN 150 member, and Ducks coach Chip Kelly has made it a priority to keep the few top prospects from in-state close to home.
The No. 9 running back in the country, Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha) made the early call for the Ducks based on a number of reasons, but the speed in which they play and the way the Ducks feature their playmakers were both major factors for Tyner. The fastest high school athlete to ever lace them up in the state of Oregon sees it as an ideal situation.
