Recruiting Update: Chinander Becoming Force

Football Recruiting

News

Oregon linebackers coach Erik Chinander is finding himself in elite company as one of the West’s premier recruiters. The 35-year old coach is being linked to some of the nation’s top recruits as the 2016 cycle slowly rolls out of the gate.

Just to the south, outsider linebacker Bryce Youngquist (4-Star/Rancho Cucamonga, CA/Rivals250) received an Oregon nod and could be in town as early as the end of this month.

Oregon is just one of those teams everyone knows and wants an offer from,” said Youngquist. “It’s an elite of the elite colleges. The facilities and the way they continue to be one of the top teams each year is impressive. I know that offer is going to change recruiting for me.”

The 6-foot-2, 215 lb. downhill force regularly mixes it up with opposing offenses and is developing into a complete linebacker at all three spots.

“They love how I can play sideline to sideline and use my speed to cover the field. It also helps I can play inside and outside linebacker, although I’m more comfortable outside right now.”
