Thomas Tyner's college career was known as a promising one cut short by injury -- until now, that is. The ex-Oregon running back, who retired from football in February of 2016 for medical reasons, is apparently attempting a college football comeback at the most unlikely of places. According to John Canzano of The Oregonian, Tyner is looking to re-start his career at Oregon State... Tyner requested his release from the University of Oregon on Friday. At 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, it became official and the former five-star running back who once rushed for 644 yards and scored 10 touchdowns in a single game for Aloha High School prepared to talk with Beavers coach Gary Andersen about playing for OSU next season. "I've wanted to be a Beaver my whole life," Tyner said. That interesting quote aside, Canzano's story is a worth a read since it dives into Tyner's story over the last year or so.
