Picayune linebacker Amarion Tyson offered by Oregon

Picayune linebacker Amarion Tyson received his first Division I offer from Oregon where teammate and four-star running back Dante Dowdell has been committed to since May.

At just 5’6, 160 pounds, don’t let his size fool you, Tyson is an absolute menace for opposing offenses leading the undefeated Maroon Tide with 91 total tackles and 13-and-a-half for loss.

The junior is also tied for the team lead with four-and-a-half sacks to go along with a forced fumble.

His 13 tackles per game is tied for sixth best in the state and his 169 tackles as a sophomore is tops in Mississippi, according to MaxPreps.

Tyson is now the fourth Picayune player with an offer to Oregon.
