Tyner Interested in the Bruins?

Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha five-star running back Thomas Tyner will likely be taking an official visit to UCLA...

On Tuesday night Beaverton (Ore.) Aloha five-star running back Thomas Tyner confirmed to Scout that he was decommitting from Oregon.

Tyner, the #20-ranked prospect overall in the country, committed to the Ducks last fall, and had remained steadfast to Oregon since.

But Tyner opened things up and a source close to his recruitment said that he will likely be taking an official visit to UCLA.

This happened, according to sources, because Tyner wanted to visit other schools and Oregon's policy dictates that, if you're a Duck commit, to visit elsewhere you must de-commit.

UCLA assistant coach Marques Tuiasosopo is the primary coach recruiting Tyner and has diligently been recruiting him despite him having been committed to Oregon for almost a year.

According to Tyner's teammate, Brayden Kearsley, a four-star offensive lineman that UCLA is recruiting, Tuiasosopo will be at Aloha's game on Friday night against Jesuit.

The other school reportedly in the mix for Tyner is Oregon State.

Tyner made national news last month when he ran for nearly 650 yards and ten touchdowns in a game.

Brandon is in his eighth year with Scout.com, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout.com Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout.com network since 2003.
