Recruiting Update: Holy Bostwick Batman!

Football Recruiting


DL Jaynard Bostwick (4-Star/Port St. Lucie, FL/Rivals250)

Landing a marquee 2013 defensive line prospect gained new significance for Oregon with Eddie Vanderdoes(4-Star/Placer, CA/Rivals100) decision to become a “Kiffin-lackey.” With that door closed, the Ducks may look cross-country to now address their needs in the trenches.

Mammoth defensive force Jaynard Bostwick (4-Star/Port St. Lucie, FL/Rivals250) considers Oregon the only program outside his home state “that I really want an offer from.” At 6’4″, 290 lbs., Bostwick indicated that “my burst off the ball and my agility as a defensive lineman” have caught the attention of Oregon coaches, and an official visit sometime during the 2012 season is very much in the realm of possibility.

Fellow southwest recruit Juwaan Williams (3-Star/Tucker, GA) recently confirmed his intention to also visit Eugene, during the first week of October. The 6’0″, 181 lb. jack-of-all-positions will no doubt witness another Oregon beat down of our “northern neighbor puppies” and get a first-hand look at how Kelly & Co. could utilize his athleticism should he make the smart choice in becoming a Duck. “Oregon is a great school. Their high-powered offense gives every player on the field an opportunity to get their hands on the ball and score,” said Williams.

Local talent Mike Ralston (NR/Eugene, OR), and West Coast linebackers David Moffitt (3-Star/Concord, CA), and Marshaun Daniel (NR/Tustin, CA) share a similarity; all three prospects are heavily interested in donning Lightning Yellow and Thunder Green. Or gunmetal black, or chartreuse, or whatever else Nike may have in store for the Ducks this year.

Ralston, a 6’5″, 235 lb. tight end who traded Jesuit for Sheldon this upcoming prep season, noted “Oregon is where I have wanted to go ever since I was little.” Down the coast, Moffitt and Daniel both could find themselves manning the second level for Defensive Coordinator Nick Allioti. “(Oregon) really takes care of their players… they know how to win,” said the 6’2″, 205 lb. Moffitt.

Echoing his sentiments was Daniel, shorter but nonetheless athletic at 5’11”, 205 lbs. “Oregon has always been one of my favorite schools (to watch) growing up,” he said, “I started liking their uniforms when I was younger and now I would consider myself to be a pretty big Oregon fan.”
