Fellow tailback Craig Lee(4-Star/Redlands, CA) is another potential Oregon backfield addition heading into the fall of 2013. With a commitment date set in August, Lee is optimistic about “trying to get to Oregon” for a visit. “I know (the Ducks) are interested,” said the 6’0, 190 lb. Lee.
Even with the commitments of top West Coast runner Thomas Tyner(5-Star/Beaverton, OR/Rivals#2-RatedRB) and slashing speedster Dontre Wilson(4-Star/DeSoto,TX), Oregon’s pursuit of Green and Lee is indicative of the furious pursuit to keep the status of “Tailback-U” for years to come.
Speaking of Wilson, the recent Duck commit called his “The Opening” experience “really cool…overall.” Blowing through the 40-yard dash and agility drills, Wilson found his niche towards the end of the camp with several long touchdown runs, leading many observers to profess that he’s the real deal. Get excited for this future Duck, Oregon Faithful; we got a potential game-changer on our hands!
Rivals #1-Rated wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones(4-Star/Sealy, TX/Rivals100) made waves last month after de-commiting from his home-state “orange people.” Seals-Jones, a 6’5, 220 lb. dual sport athlete (basketball), has Oregon in his top five program choices and may wind up in Eugene in the near future for a visit. In regards to the time-frame of a decision, Seals-Jones indicated that he simply “(has) to be patient.”
WE, THE GREEN AND YELLOW, WE – THE DUCK FAITHFUL!!!

I wish to give special credit and thanks to ESPN, ABC, CBS, FOX, Comcast, and Versus companies/networks for the telecasts that provide these images for pictures and short videos. Closely studying Oregon football brings more fans to their production/product and builds a greater appreciation and interest in their product by so many more fans due to the basic tenets of Oregon football presented here. I personally thank them for that opportunity to learn and enjoy their product that much more!
Charles Fischer has been an intense fan of the Ducks for thirty years and has written reports on football boards for over a dozen years. Known as “FishDuck” on those boards, he is acknowledged for providing intense detail in his scrimmage reports and in his Xs and Os play analyses. He and his wife Lois, a daughter, Christine, and their dog (Abbie) reside in Eugene, Oregon, where he has been a financial advisor for 27 years serving clients in seven different states. He does not profess to be a coach or analyst, but simply a “hack” that enjoys sharing what he has learned and invites others to correct or add to this body of Oregon Football!
