In an offense that is predicated on speed, Oregon’s recent additions of interior brawn have only continued to bolster the relentless up-tempo “Blur.” Offensive line coach Steve Greatwood is ensuring future trench battles go the Ducks way with an offer extension to Tyrell Crosby (NR/Henderson, NV). Standing 6’4″ and carrying a playing weight of 298 lbs., Crosby’s size, coupled with raw athleticism, makes him an ideal candidate for Greatwood’s mobile line schemes. “Oregon is still on top (in my recruitment), they are in front right now,” said Crosby. “They also offer a good education and a great offense. I’m really close to coach (Steve) Greatwood and he tells me he loves my footwork and my character. I know they are serious about me.” A lineman who possesses NFL type size at a young age, Oregon’s early scrutiny of Crosby’s skills seems to be paying off.
Touted safety Mattrell McGraw (3-Star/River Ridge, LA) has no shortage of interest in the Ducks. The 6’0″, 183 lb. secondary defender will journey from the southwest to Eugene in an effort to get a in-depth read on what head coach Mark Helfrich & Co. have to offer. “I’m going to Oregon on April 18 with my mom for a couple of days,” said McGraw. “I really want to see Eugene and meet the coaches and just see the town.” A shifty prep with speed to burn, McGraw’s ball hawking prowess will only increase as he progresses into his final prep season. McGraw added a final tidbit that should make We, The Duck Faithful ever hopeful. “I would definitely say if the trip goes well Oregon will be on top. That’s the school I want to see, they could be the team to beat if all goes well up there,” said McGraw.
