Indicators of prep interest in Oregon continues to trickle out after the conclusion of Nike’s “The Opening.”
Recently named Rivals’ Top 2013 running back Derrick Green (5-Star/Richmond, VA/Rival’s100) was on-hand in Beaverton to “get a feel for Oregon.” A 6’0, 215 lb. bruiser with 4.4 speed, Green is anxious to visit the Ducks in person. “Coming out to Oregon was great. It’s been great to see the area and get a feel… Now I just need to see the facilities and campus at the University of Oregon.”
Speaking of Wilson, the recent Duck commit called his “The Opening” experience “really cool…overall.” Blowing through the 40-yard dash and agility drills, Wilson found his niche towards the end of the camp with several long touchdown runs, leading many observers to profess that he’s the real deal. Get excited for this future Duck, Oregon Faithful; we got a potential game-changer on our hands!
WE, THE GREEN AND YELLOW, WE – THE DUCK FAITHFUL!!!

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!
