Recent Oregon commit Travis Waller (4-Star/Anaheim, CA/Rivals250) is silencing any remaining critics about the game he intends to bring to Oregon. The 6-foot-2, 195 lb. dual-threat has been turning at heads the Elite 11 quaterback camp held this past weekend at Nike’s Beaverton campus.
“When you watch the ball (come out of his hand), he delivers it with velocity (and accuracy),” said Michael Felder of Bleacher Report. “He has all the tools to be a very successful quarterback in the Oregon offense.”
On Monday, Waller’s time at Nike immediately shifted to The Opening as Oregon’s quaterback of the future participates in the nation’s premier recruit camp.
Fellow Duck nod Taj Griffin (4-Star/Powder Springs, GA/Rivals100) got the ball rolling for Oregon commits with an impressive showing in SPARQ testing, garnering a top 10 finish and a spot in the SPARQ event finals later this week. Griffin hit a new gear, running a 4.31/40 and touching 45″ in the vertical jump.
“I’m looking for honesty, (a program) I can fit into,” said Broadus. “I want to go somewhere I can fit in, become the best player I can be on and off the field.
A 6-foot-3, 186 lb. route runner, Broadus is a quaterback’s dream once he gets loose.
“(I excel at) deep balls, getting in and out of my breaks,” and to the delight of We, the Oregon Faithful, “A good blocker.”
Broadus may lack an Oregon offer but a steady senior season and nothing to note off the field may translate very quickly into a Ducks nod come this fall.
Uncommitted linebacker John Houston (5-Star/Gardena, CA/Rivals100) revealed to DuckTerritory’s Justin Hopkins that he will be visiting Eugene on an official visit. Houston has rapidly become the nation’s premier “outside-man” and is first-year linebackers coach Erik Chinander’s top priority heading into summer. Oregon’s chances hinge on Houston’s exposure to Eugene and a continued dialogue spearheaded by one of the country’s younger and dynamic position coaches, stay tuned!
