Calvin Tyler Jr. is a 5-foot-9, 190-pound running back from Silsbee, Texas. He verbally committed to Oregon State just last week and just sent in his signed and sealed national letter of intent.

Calvin Tyler Jr. can provide the Beavers offense with a different element. At 5-foot-9 and 190 pounds, Tyler has a very different body type than starting tailback Ryan Nall (6-foot-2, 235-pounds). Despite Tyler’s smaller stature he is still a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the football. In fact, he has ran for 50 touchdowns of 50+ yards during his high school career and totaled 2,861 yards and 29 touchdowns as a senior (stats courtesy of OregonLive).

Calvin Tyler Jr is a great addition for Oregon State and comes at a position of need. The Beavers need running back depth behind Ryan Nall and Artavis Pierce. And with TJ Green (RB) deciding to attend the University of Utah instead of Oregon State, Calvin Tyler Jr’s decision is welcome news for the Beavers.
