We asked fans to pass along their questions for Ducks' RB commit Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha) via the @ESPNDuckNation Twitter handle, so we could have the No. 54 player in the ESPN 150 share his thoughts with the fans.

The response was incredible, as we received a number of great questions. With the future Oregon running back's help we narrowed it down to five of the best questions that were submitted. Here is what the nation's No. 6 RB had to say...

ESPN 150 athlete and Ducks commit Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto) is ready to close the book on his recruitment and is fully committed to Oregon, whether or not Chip Kelly remains the coach of the program.

Reports had surfaced throughout Friday's Under Armour All-America Game in St. Petersburg, Fla., that Kelly is close to accepting the top coaching position with the Cleveland Browns.

“Coach Kelly is a tremendous coach and he’s had a great run at Oregon to help put that program on the map,” Wilson said. “But the players are in place and the program is rolling now. Coach [Mark] Helfrich and coach [Gary] Campbell are still there and that’s the big thing for me.”

With talk of Chip Kelly possibly going to the NFL after this season, Ivan Maisel takes a look at how his high-octane offense would work in the pros.

It was the type of day countless high school football stars all across the country experience every week. After leaving his girlfriend's house, Fountain Valley (Calif.) High School offensive lineman J.D. Hinnant headed to a team dinner the night before a big Friday game.

It ended up being the type of night every parent fears.

Erik McKinney/ESPN.comOL recruit J.D. Hinnant was in a serious car accident earlier this month, but he expects to be ready for college football some time next year.
When Laurie Hinnant got the call on the afternoon of Nov. 2, she heard some of the most dreadful words a mother can hear.

"All I heard was that J.D. had been in an accident," she said. "That it was bad and we needed to get over there as soon as possible. It was unbelievable," she said. "I can't imagine a feeling worse than what I felt when I got the call."

Her mind immediately went to the worst place imaginable.

"I thought he was gone," she said. "It was something you're never prepared to hear about your child."

She gathered her husband and daughters and headed straight for the scene. They couldn't get there fast enough.

"When I saw the car, I thought there was no way he could have survived," she said. "He was still in the passenger's seat when we got there. He was unconscious and we didn't know what to think. They had to remove him from the car, and I just thought that this was how it was going to end."

Hinnant's mother rode to the hospital in the ambulance with him, on what she said was the longest ride of her life.

"It took forever," she said. "To look at your son, who is always so full of life and think that you might be watching that life be taken away from him...That is very hard to take."
