Landing a marquee 2013 defensive line prospect gained new significance for Oregon with Eddie Vanderdoes‘ (4-Star/Placer, CA/Rivals100) decision to become a “Kiffin-lackey.” With that door closed, the Ducks may look cross-country to now address their needs in the trenches.
Mammoth defensive force Jaynard Bostwick (4-Star/Port St. Lucie, FL/Rivals250) considers Oregon the only program outside his home state “that I really want an offer from.” At 6’4″, 290 lbs., Bostwick indicated that “my burst off the ball and my agility as a defensive lineman” have caught the attention of Oregon coaches, and an official visit sometime during the 2012 season is very much in the realm of possibility.
Ralston, a 6’5″, 235 lb. tight end who traded Jesuit for Sheldon this upcoming prep season, noted “Oregon is where I have wanted to go ever since I was little.” Down the coast, Moffitt and Daniel both could find themselves manning the second level for Defensive Coordinator Nick Allioti. “(Oregon) really takes care of their players… they know how to win,” said the 6’2″, 205 lb. Moffitt.
Echoing his sentiments was Daniel, shorter but nonetheless athletic at 5’11”, 205 lbs. “Oregon has always been one of my favorite schools (to watch) growing up,” he said, “I started liking their uniforms when I was younger and now I would consider myself to be a pretty big Oregon fan.”

For Greybeards … the EYES Have it!
Want to know a secret about web behavior? Readers don’t like long stretches of sentences in comment posts without any breaks, and most readers don’t even like long paragraphs.
Break it up! After every third sentence in your post…hit “enter” on your keyboard twice if your computer is a PC, or “return” twice if you have a Mac.
This creates natural breaks between scads of sentences, and so many of us thank you for making it easier on our “Greybeard-age” eyes!
