4 star RB and Oregon University Top Football Recruit Decommits from Ducks

US PRESSWIRE- Mark J. Rebilas

Thomas Tyner committed to Oregon last November, but recently made headlines for decommitting from the school.

The four-star prospect has been turning heads. He is rated the No. 13 overall RB by Sporting News and ran for a state-record 643 yards and 10 touchdowns on his 18th birthday in a wild, 84-63 victory.

His successes may have just opened up his mind to what might be possible for him.

“I just want to be 100-percent of my decision,” Tyner told 247Sports.com. “UCLA is one school I’d like to visit for sure and there could be others. They have stayed in contact with me every week and I really love the thought of living in California.”

The Ducks could still end up landing Tyner, but he wants to visit a couple more school before making a final decision.

For the season, Tyner has rushed for 2,325 yards on 183 carries, an astonishing 12.7 yards per carry average. He has 29 scores and is averaging 332.1 yards rushing in his seven games. By the way wins.

He began the season with a 213-yard outing and followed that with 371, 643, 257, 173, 311 and 357.

“I love Oregon and the coaches and the program,” Tyner said. “They treat me like family and I’m definitely not ruling Oregon out. I committed so early in the process and I just want to make sure of my decision.”

With Tyner’s departure, Oregon has 10 commitments for its 2013 class. Could his decommitment be because the Ducks already have Dontre Wilson, a four star running back from DeSoto (Texas), committed? Or is he just keeping his options open? Rant your comments and let us know how you feel.
