Marc Tyler is officially back and will play this weekend. He will add some much needed experience, size and strength to the running back group. Tyler is listed at 5-foot-11, 230 pounds. Coach Kiffin said of Tyler’s return,
“He did everything right.”
“He’s looked very good. He did service team all week for us last week and was very productive down there. I know they beat him up down there, which is what he needed after missing camp. He still has a lot of work to do but it’s good to have a guy who’s played a lot back. Anytime that you can add a guy who’s been there, done it, they usually play better than the (less-experienced) guys.”
Tyler rushed for 913 yards and nine TDs last season.
