While still a year away, quarterback Seth Green (4-Star/Woodbury, MN/Rivals250) is already Oregon’s prime target heading into the 2016 recruiting cycle. Green’s rapport with the Ducks, most specifically offensive coordinator Scott Frost, ramped-up significantly at the end of July when an offer came down the pipe.
“(Oregon) told me I’m the first quarterback they have offered in my class,” said Green. “That feels pretty amazing to have them think so highly of me.”
This past weekend, Green took his second unofficial visit to Eugene and may have taken his first step to becoming a Duck.
“My visit out to Oregon was like a work-out/small camp setting when I was out there … I honestly don’t think the visit out there could have gone any better. I loved the facilities. What I really liked most about it, is their academics facility is at the same caliber as the athletic facilities. I also loved how well they use their facilities to get the most out of their players.”
In late July, Green named Oregon the favorite to ink his 6-foot-3, 210 lb. dual-threat prowess and will visit the Ducks when Michigan State comes to town Sept. 6th.
“I’m working pretty hard on Kirk Merritt, Ryan Newsome, Malik Lovette, and Russell Ude right now,” Waller said. “I talk to Merritt almost every day and I think Oregon has a great shot.”
Merritt (4-Star/Destrehan, LA), already a household name in the southeast, burst onto the national scene when he took top honors in the SPARQ National Championship at Nike’s The Opening. Long connected with Oregon’s style of offense, Merritt would be an ideal TAZR for head coach Mark Helfrich & Co.
“Oregon is my top school right now,” said Lovette. “We run a similar offense now and I love how Oregon would use me. They compared me to Josh Huff and said I could get carries out of the backfield and in the slot.”
