Oregon received a startling, yet not necessarily unexpected commitment in recent visitor Alex Ofodile (4-Star/Columbia, MO/Rivals250). A mid-west standout at wide receiver, Ofodile made the trek out west to visit the Ducks this past weekend.
“It was definitely where I felt most comfortable,” said Ofodile. “I loved the facilities and all of that, but I just got that feeling at Oregon. I knew it was the right place for me.”
A 6-foot-3, 185 lb. speedster, Ofodile doesn’t shy away from contact once he hauls in a pass and will instantly remind ‘We, The Duck Faithful’ of recently departed point-man Josh Huff. While he may be a quiet four-star, Ofodile is the kind of player who flourishes in Oregon’s speed-driven offense and has the potential for record-book etching when all is said and done. Stay tuned!
Oregon’s future at quarterback is one of the hottest discussions in college football. Dual-threat Travis Waller’s (4-Star/Anaheim, CA/Rivals250) interaction with the Ducks has been a curious one seeing a long-standing recruiting dialogue finally resulting in an offer over the weekend.
“I talked to (Mark Helfrich) and he explained what took so long,” said Waller. “(Helfrich) told me how I can contribute and how I’d be a great fit for their offense. He said I saw their place in January and he hopes I’m still interested. Then he offered. I was very hyped up.”
The 6-foot-2, 195 lb. Waller is Oregon’s best option moving forward and would be in contention to start from day one in a Ducks’ uniform.
“(Oregon is) the perfect fit. They run the spread offense. That’s the school I’ve always wanted to go to.”
Waller will be just north of Eugene for Nike’s The Opening in early July and could solve Oregon’s quarterback uncertainty following the camp. A near-future commitment to Helfrich & Co. would go a long way in solidifying Oregon’ s 2015 class and perhaps more importantly, elevate the level of security in the post-Marcus Mariota era.
