The Oregon Ducks have another big-time running back signed up, and he's the best runner in the Bay Area to boot.
Oregon landed a big name when they earned the verbal commitment of Byron Marshall from Valley Christian High in San Jose. Marshall is considered perhaps the best running back on the West Coast in this class. Just like his brother Cameron (now the starter at ASU), he figures to be an impact player down the line and could give the Ducks more fight in their rushing attack. Marshall commits to Oregon over schools like ASU, Cal, Notre Dame, USC and Washington.
Marshall's biggest strength is his overall measurables and strength conditioning. He's at 5'10, 200 lbs, 10.67 100M, has a 300+ pound bench, a 510 pound squat, a 485 pound dead lift, and a 255 pound power clean. This is one workout warrior who you figure will be tough to take down once he hits full stride.
Here's a look at his highlight tape.
The success of the Oregon run schemes must have really appealed to Marshall, who can showcase his talent in an offense conducive to putting up the yards and the points.
