The Oregon football team will entertain a five-star running back recruit this weekend. Thomas Tyner will be in Eugene for the second time this season for a visit. The 6A player of the year in Oregon a year ago, Tyner is a junior that brings sprinter's speed to the equation.
This isn't too unexpected a development given Tyner is an Oregonian -- you'd expect him to give the Ducks a long look. He'll have other suitors as the next year moves along, but Oregon appears to be in the hunt for one of the nation's best.
