Oregon’s latest campaign got underway yesterday morning with the program’s first organized practice of the spring season. Per the Duck way, the public and press alike will be starved for any information until the mass unveiling of the 2014 squad at the “Salute the Troops”-themed spring game matchup on May 3rd. Beyond Autzen, the Oregon brass seems to have made a large push on the recruiting trail in addition to preparing for the returning Green and Yellow.
Dual-threat signal caller Bryce Perkins (3-Star/Chandler, AZ) has been a name to note heading into the spring cycle and could wind up in Eugene in the near future.
“An Oregon offer would be a game-changer. They have been recruiting me off and on for a while,” said Perkins. “They asked me to come up for their camp in June and I plan on going.”
A stout 6-foot-3, 205 lbs., Perkins fits the athlete profile but could find success staying at the quaterback position, as he possesses the ability to extend plays and has a knack to find the open man.
“I love the offense and I’d love to get an offer from Oregon.”
Perkins will be a participant at Oregon’s regional NFTC camp and with a strong showing, could easily gain an offer from the hometown team.
“Oregon seems to be showing the most interest of everyone,” said Faamatau. “I love Oregon. That would be a big offer for me and I would definitely have interest.”
At 6-foot-4, 280 lbs., Faamatau has spent time on both sides of the ball but will most likely settle somewhere along the defensive line as his mobile interior presence keeps opposing runners in check.
“(Oregon has been) telling me I’m a great athlete and they can’t wait to recruit me.”
Faamatau’s connection to southern california will be a hurdle to overcome but an Oregon offer and a possible visit could go along way to bringing him to Eugene, stay tuned!
