Recruiting Update: Oregon Mounting Raid in SEC’s Backyard?
Oregon’s post-Civil War recruiting trips may have yielded a new angle in the deep South. Once a seemingly untouchable region, the walls of the “southern accent” conference aren’t so tall anymore.
Somewhat of a sleeper storyline, linebackers coach Don Pellum visited and offered rising senior Zach Cunningham (NR/Pinson, AL). Oregon is a strong contender to land the 6’4″, 196 lb. defender, as he indicated that the Ducks are one of his top program choices.
Defensive line coach Jerry Azzinaro spent some time with top Duck target Peter Kalambayi (4-Star/Matthews, NC/Rivals100) in an effort to gauge where the “silly tree” commit stands. “Coach Azzinaro came by and just checked on me,” said the 6’3″, 238 lb. Kalambayi. “They are just letting me know they still really want me to be a Duck and I’m one of the top guys on their board.”
Linebacker Joe Walker (2-Star/Wilmington, CA) will make his way to Eugene this coming Thursday. A JUCO linebacker standout, Walker has the potential to depart his weekend visit with and offer and subsequent commitment, as sources close to his recruitment say both may be in store for the 6’3″, 230 lb. interior defender.
