Recruiting Update: De’Jon Bringing the Mustard

Win The Day. Enough said!

News

Amid my frustration and disbelief of what befell our beloved Ducks this past Saturday was my almost immediate gaze to the future, both in the figurative and literal senses. I sat in Section 9 on the sunny side of Auzten, mere rows above the cordoned off “VIP” area that seats Oregon’s visitors. By the third quarter, I found myself thinking “I hope Helfrich & Co. played a good weekend as a whole.”

It appears they did.

Even though Oregon lost, it didn’t bother me,” said De’jon Harris (3-Star/Marrero, La.). “I really wanted to see the atmosphere and how the coaches interact with the players. We sat down with the players and the coaches in meetings today.

“They were showing me the depth chart at linebacker and it’s wide open. It’s full of juniors and seniors. There’s a great chance to come in and compete right away … [My mom said she] really liked how Oregon has it all set up for you. She was pretty impressed.”

The 5-foot-11, 235 pound Harris is currently committed to 1-4 Arkansas but may wind up on the west coast with the turmoil surrounding the Razorbacks.

“Once I take that (Arkansas) visit I can compare the two and make my final decision after that. I’m still solid to Arkansas but I’m definitely thinking about Oregon too.”

Check back next week for reactions from several other recruits in attendance last Saturday, WTD!

    Maybe the beatdown by the Utes was a blessing in disguise… The recruits thinking that the Ducks need a LOT of help in all phases. ;-)

    I think a whole lot of how they’ve been playing is Coaching because this team is loaded with Talent and just hasn’t worked out so far behind center.
