Offensive Lineman Tyrell Crosby Commits to Oregon

The Henderson, Nevada native committed to Oregon over several other Pac-12 schools.

Oregon got their second verbal commitment in the 2014 recruiting class today as Tyrell Crosby committed to the Ducks. Rivals.com Adam Gorney first reported the news, which was followed up shortly by reports from Scout.com.

Crosby is a big offensive lineman at 6'5, 295 lbs. He is a 3 star recruit according to most recruiting services and had offers from multiple Pac-12 schools, including Washington, Oregon State, Arizona State, and Utah. Regardless of the star ranking, the Oregon coaching staff thinks very highly of Crosby as he was one of the first players they offered in the 2013 class.

The Las Vegas Sun had this to say about Crosby in February:

Despite the big frame, he's relatively slender with room to add muscle. He also plays center on the Gators' basketball team, which partially explains why he's credited with having exceptional footwork.

His top asset, and one of the reasons Oregon could be interested, is his speed. He's clocked at just 5.3 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which isn't a high-end time for a lineman. But when you consider Green Valley runs a spread offense similar to Oregon's and Crosby is already programmed to get up field to block, his quickness further elevates his stock.

"I'm better at run blocking because I'm good at getting into the open field and blocking," Crosby said.

Crosby is a great pickup and the exact type of player that has thrived in the spread offense at Oregon under coach Steve Greatwood. He joins four star DE/OLB Jordan Hoiem in the 2014 class.
