Oregon Football: 5 Star Running Back Thomas Tyner Among 2013 Class of 19 Ducks

The official list was just released from the University of Oregon, well...a picture of it. Oregon native and Aloha alum Running Back Thomas Tyner is on the list. We’ll give a full breakdown of the list shortly by Offense, Defense and Special Teams.

Thomas Tyner was electric at the high school level. In his senior season, 11 games, his rushing average was over 300 yards per game, 3,415 yards in total, and he scored 47 touchdowns. Tyner may end up being the workhorse for the Ducks this season. The question isn’t if…it’s when. Tyner was named on the list from CBS of the Top 10 Recruits to Make an Impact in 2013. Oregon also picked up the commitment of three star running back Kani Benoit out of Phoenix, Arizona. Benoit is a Three star recruit. Keep in mind that when former Duck Kenjon Barner entered the picture at Oregon, he was also a Three star recruit. Oregon looks to be solid at Running Back for the next few years with these two athletes, along with Byron Marshall and DeAnthony Thomas, who as we know can play all over the field.
