Recruiting Update: Barnett an Oregon Lock?

He can be described as the biggest commit to “See Green” late in the game since De’Anthony Thomas. Quarterback Blake Barnett (4-Star/Corona, Ca/Rivals100) made a surprise visit to Oregon earlier this month and following what has been described as a perfect visit to Eugene, decommitted from a lengthy verbal nod to Notre Dame. Oregon now appears to be in the lead to land one of — if not the nation’s top — dual threats and will host the 6-foot-4, 195 lb. signal-caller in early July when Barnett makes his way to Portland for Nike’s The Opening.

Oregon appears to be poised to snag another prep away from a previous commitment in high flying cornerback  AJ Greeley (3-Star/Fresno, CA). The do-it-all recruit was given the coveted defensive back MVP award following his performance at the Eugene NFTC camp this past weekend and isn’t bashful about what he thinks about Oregon.

“If Oregon offers me I’ll probably decommit from Fresno State and commit to Oregon,” said Greeley. “Oregon will be a big offer for me … I like coach (John) Neal a lot, my mom liked him too.”

Standing 5-foot-11, 175 lbs., Greeley has takes the term versatility to a whole new level but will settle in the secondary during his jump to collegiate ball.

“Coach Neal was giving me advice on how to get into Oregon and how they are one of the faster teams in the country. He’s definitely interested in me and said he might offer this summer. I just need to keep working and hopefully that will happen.”

Stay tuned!
