With Christmas closing in, Oregon’s trek along the recruiting trail will see a momentary hiatus. However, a flurry of winter activity has tripped the radar of several top recruits as the new year inches ever closer. Linebacker Josh Woods (3-Star/Upland, CA) gave a commitment nod to UCLA earlier this year, but the Ducks now seem to be back in the fray as an offer was extended with the hope of bringing Woods north for an official visit.
“Oh that (Oregon) offer is big, it’s definitely big,” said Woods. “That’s not one you can overlook. I’m thinking about taking a visit in January…”
A 6-2, 220 lb. second-level defender, Woods would see time coming off the edge and make his mark flanking opposing quarterbacks.
“Coach (Don) Pellum said I’m a good fit for their defense. He wants me to come in as an outside linebacker and get after the quarterback and drop in coverage too. He’s definitely a pretty easy guy to talk to and Oregon wins a lot of games. You have to look at a team that is always one of the best in the nation like Oregon.”
“The Oregon offer impacts me greatly,” said Meadors. “Oregon… will be my last visit in January. I grew up watching (Oregon)…”
A ball-hawking secondary general, the 6-foot-1, 195 lb. Meadors has an extra edge on defense as he played a large amount of his prep career at quarterback.
Meadors will take an official visit to Eugene on January 16th of next year, stay tuned; WTD!!!
