Normally, Oregon recruiting news wouldn't merit mention here, except that Aloha HS stud running back Thomas Tyner is the same fellow that was originally considering OSU, watched the Beavs lose last year to Sac State, and turned to the Ducks instead.
No embarassing loss by the Ducks to explain this latest reversal by Tyner. As the Ducks are in the thick of the NC hunt, and have been the dominant program in the Pac-12 (though OSU may have something to say about that), this is interesting.
Perhaps it's for non-athletic reasons; perhaps he simply wants to check out other programs. But 'tis curious.
At any rate, if he does visit UCLA, there's only nine more Pac-12 schools to go...
