The 2013 Oregon prep football class was a talented group with seven players committed to BCS programs, five more with division-one teams, and lastly Brayden Kearsley who holds BCS offers is still undecided. Four-star Thomas Tyner headlines the state’s group of seniors and will be playing his college football at Oregon.
Thomas Tyner was the state's best and now will have a chance to have an impact right away at Oregon.
DuckTerritory.com was able to watch multiple games this season across the state of Oregon and has finished our final rankings for the 2013 class.
No. 1 Thomas Tyner 4-star RB (Aloha HS/Committed to Oregon)
Tyner ran for a state-record 3,415 yards and 38 touchdowns and proved he’s the state’s best player. Tyner had the nation talking about the future Duck when he ran for 643 yards and 10 touchdowns against Lakeridge high school during the third week of the season. Oregon State, Washington, UCLA, USC, and Cal were some of Tyner’s other offers.
No. 2 Brayden Kearsley 4-star OL (Aloha HS/Uncommitted)
Tyner’s huge senior year wouldn’t have been possible without the play of his large offensive tackle Brayden Kearsley. The 6-foot-5 275 pound tackle paved the way for Tyner and has a host of college options that includes BYU, Oregon State, Washington, and Arizona State.
No. 3 Evan Voeller 4-star OT (West Linn HS/Committed to Oregon)
The 6-foot-5 285 pound senior battled a shoulder injury suffered early in the season that sidelined him for most of his final season at West Linn. Voeller returned to action for a playoff push. Voeller will play at Oregon and is Oregon’s top Oregon commit along the offensive line. Held other offers from Oregon State and Washington.
No. 4 Johnny Ragin 3-star LB (Wilsonville HS/Committed to BYU)
Johnny Ragin climbed our charts and became one of the state's best.
Ragin decided to spurn BCS offers from Oregon State, Colorado, and Cal and play for Independent BYU. The 6-foot-3 linebacker burst onto the scene in the summer at Nike’s The Opening camp which was invite-only for the nation’s elite players. Held offers from Oregon State, Cal, Colorado, Wyoming, Portland State, Nevada, and Wyoming.
No. 5 Doug Brenner 3-star C (Jesuit HS/Committed to Oregon)
Brenner made the switch from tight end to center for his senior year and the 6-foot-3 275 pound player was awarded with scholarship offers from Oregon and Oregon State. Brenner quickly committed to Oregon after getting offered. BYU, Air Force, Wyoming, and Portland State also offered.
No. 6 Andrew Kirkland 3-star OT (Jesuit HS/Committed to Washington)
The 6-foot-5 300 pound tackle was offered by Washington prior to his senior season and quickly pounced on the chance to play for Steve Sarkisian and the Huskies. Colorado and Portland State also offered.
No. 7 Tanner Shipley 3-star ATH (Wilsonville HS/BYU)
The 6-foot-2 190 pound athlete played running back as a senior full-time and produced 1,392 yards and 17 touchdowns. Shipley also added 392 yards receiving and two more touchdowns. At BYU Shipley will play receiver. Picked BYU over offers from Colorado, Oregon State, Portland State, and Wyoming.
No. 8 Dallin Leavitt 3-star SS (Central Catholic HS/BYU)
Evan Colorito could become one of the Northwest's top uncommitted prospects in January.
Leavitt was a terror on defense for the Central Catholic Rams. As a senior he finished with 71 tackles, three interceptions, two sacks, and two forced fumbles. The 6-foot-1 200 pound safety committed to BYU during his junior year after hearing from Oregon and Oregon State.
No. 9 Connor Strahm non-ranked ATH (Sheldon HS/Uncommitted)
The 6-foot-2 220 pound athlete is perhaps the state’s most relied upon player as he carried the Sheldon Irish to a 14-0 record and 6A State Title. Strahm caught 90 passes for 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns while rushing for 600 yards and nine touchdowns. Strahm holds offers from Portland State, Montana, North Dakota. Boise State, OSU, Washington State, and Idaho are evaluating for an offer. Oregon has offered a walk-on spot.
No. 10 Evan Colorito non-ranked LB (Beaverton HS/Uncommitted)
The 6-foot-4 235 pound linebacker played a huge role in getting the Beaverton Beavers back into the 6A playoffs. Colorito holds offers from Nevada, Colorado, and Portland State. Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona State, and Boise State are also still looking at him.
No. 11 Nate Halverson non-ranked ATH (Grant HS/SMU)

No. 12 Derrick Turituri 3-star LB (Crater HS/Committed to Arizona)
The 6-foot-3 225 pound linebacker paired with his teammate R.J. Morgan were the only bright spots for a poor season at Carter in 2013. Turituri played all over the place for the Comets starring at running back, tight end, receiver, defensive end, and linebacker. He will play linebacker at Arizona.
No. 13 Max Rich unranked OT (Jesuit HS/Committed to Harvard)
The 6-foot-7 offensive tackle is Jesuit’s third lineman set to play college football at the next level. Rich decided to play at Harvard over scholarship offers from Colorado and Washington State.
No. 14 Skyler Phillips 2-star OG (Churchill HS/Committed to Oregon State)
Phillips was the surprise of the 2013 class rising from honorable mention all-league player to summer camp standout. Phillips earned an invite to Nike’s The Opening and then quickly turned his performance into an offer from local program Oregon State. At 6-foot-3 and 340 pounds Phillips will need to shed weight but there is a ton of potential there.

The son of an NFL legend the 6-foot-5 240 pound younger Lomax has developed into one of the state’s best overall athletes.

OG Matt Sommer (West Salem HS/Uncommitted) - The massive tackle has offers from FCS programs Portland State, Eastern Washington, Northern Colorado, Montana. Idaho has also offered.
DE Mike Ralston (Sheldon HS/Uncommitted) - The 6-foot-5 235 pound athlete can play tight end or defensive end at the next level. Also a good punter. Montana and Portland State have offered.
