While the Class of 2012 made their mark on the field, members of the 2014 recruiting pool looked on with amazement at the latest edition of the military-themed Oregon spring game. Tabbed athlete Devante Downs (4-Star/Lynnwood, WA/Rivals250), quarterback Morgan Mahalak (3-Star/Kentfield, CA), linebacker Zach Brown (3-Star/San Deigo, CA), and lineman Sam Jones (3-Star/Highlands Ranch, CO) all visited and took in the sights of Eugene over this past weekend.
A jack-of-all-trades at 6’3″ and 230 lbs., Downs was quick to mention Oregon’s cutting edge feel. “We got a tour of everything and I was blown away by all the state of the art technology and all the facilities,” said Downs. “I actually don’t’ know enough adjectives to describe it all.” Nimble on his feet, Downs will most likely settle into the linebacking corps and indicated that coach Don Pellum was eager to make an in-home visit. While an offer has not been extended, Downs’ grades (3.60 GPA) and overall demeanor on the field should translate to an Oregon nod come this summer.
