The stakes couldn’t be higher as Oregon eagerly anticipates the arrival of big-board topper Blake Barnett (4-Star/Corona, CA/Rivals100). Arguably the nation’s top dual-threat quarterback, Barnett will be in Eugene this coming Thursday for a multi-day recruiting trip. Unlike his first visit to Duckville, Barnett will not be alone as he intends to bring both mom and dad for what could be the hinge-point to solidify Oregon as Barnett’s school of choice. Simply put, this is it. Head coach Mark Helfrich & Co. can take a tremendous leap forward in the minds of recruits by besting the likes of Alabama for Barnett’s services. Check back to FishDuck next week for an update!
“Right now Oregon is on top,” said Jones. “I have spoken to Coach Aiken a few times already. He told me he is going to talk to Coach (Don) Pellum and Coach (Mark) Helfrich about me and he thinks an offer is coming.”
A 6-foot-6, 285 lb. monster in the trenches, Jones makes no secrets about his mentality.
“I play with a nasty streak.”
Jones is a lock to suit up as a Duck when all is said and done if an offer is extended. An official visit is in the works and should see Jones commit to Aiken’s defensive line if all goes according to plan. Stay tuned!
