Junior OT Tyrell Crosby

Green Valley High School junior Tyrell Crosby talks about the upcoming football season.

The University of Oregon’s football team could have two from the Las Vegas area playing on its offensive line in upcoming years.

Green Valley High's Tyrell Crosby, a 6-foot-6, 295-pound offensive tackle, verbally committed to Oregon Monday following an unofficial visit. Crosby confirmed the commitment on his Twitter account. Last February, offensive lineman Elijah George from Arbor View signed with Oregon, potentially giving Southern Nevada two players at one of the nation’s top programs.

Crosby was one of the most sought after linemen in the region, also taking an unofficial trip this spring to Utah.

He had more than double-digit scholarship offers, including ones from Boise State, Washington State, Arizona State, Colorado and UNLV.

“Honestly from the bottom of my heart thank everyone who supported my decision today,” he wrote on Twitter.

He also changed his photo on the social media site to one in an Oregon No. 78 jersey. He wears No. 78 for Green Valley.

Verbal commitments are nonbinding and don’t become official until a letter-of-intent is signed in early February.

    By the time it's all said & done, probably looking at a 2-year bowl ban, in addition to the other penalties (reduction in scholarships, etc).
