Best Oregon recruit ever, IMHO, and I go WAAAAAAY back ...
except a whole lot FASTER than J-Stew ...
I have liked your opinions since I started looking at this site and am curious who you would say are the top 5 recruits in oregon football history.
Its funny until recently he wasn't seen in any way as similar to Stewart other than he was an elite RB from the Northwest and I agree that its not the best comparison. He clearly made an effort as his senior season wore on to become more physical with the added weight. The way I think about it is Tyner and Stewart traded strength for speed. Tyner is quicker/faster, Stewart was stronger but Stewart definitely isn't a lot slower and Tyner definitely isn't a lot weaker. Something like that haha...
All-seeing instrument. Supreme perception. Omnifocal accumulator... Its gaze upon the blind. Information divinity by man designed.
A bunch to consider. I tried to average college, pro and potential careers and came up with 1: Haloti Ngata 2: Dan Fouts 3: L.James 4: De Thomas 5: J Stewart. I left a lot of my other favorites and studs out and I may be proven wrongstyle.
Nice list Bobbo!
Gary Zimmerman and Ahmad Rashad(Bobby Moore) Showing my age here:-(

Most acclaimed coming in and who lived up to the hype (as opposed to under the radar who excelled) in no order
3. Mel Renfro
5.Tyner (if he proves out)
The difference is that Tyner is actually from the state of Oregon. Who would our top 5 Oregonian recruits be?
Tyner, Joey, Kellen, Colt, Dave Wilcox?
Also, remember Curtis White? Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves with Tyner just yet.
Wasn't Renfro a Portland kid?
Yes. Jefferson HS. Was one year behind Terry Baker, Heisman winner from OS.
Thanks. That was just a bit before my time, but remember some of the stories.
Yes, Jefferson High.
How can you have someone who has never taken a snap in college as someone who lived up to the hype?
