Football Recruiting


Tyrell (3-Star/San Diego, CA/Rivals150) and Tyree Robinson (4-Star/ San Diego, CA/Rivals150)

Oregon’s incoming twin tandem of Stephen (3-Star/Arlington, TX) and Eric Amoako (3-Star/Arlington, TX) might have future second level company coming by way of family athlete duo Tyree (4-Star/San Diego, CA/Rivals150) and Tyrell Robinson (3-Star/ San Diego, CA/Rivals150).

The “Killer T’s,” nationally known for dual sport prowess (basketball) are in the process of trimming their program shortlist. Currently, both Robinson’s hold Oregon gridiron and hardwood offers. “We definitely want to visit Oregon, that’s definitely a school we are looking hard at,” said Tyrell. “Oregon does really well in both sports, especially on the football side.” Versatile on both fields of play, the Robinson’s could instantly create mismatches due to a blend of venerable size (6’4, 180-85 lbs.) and speed; stay tuned!

West Coast corner Dashon Hunt (4-Star/Westlake Village, CA/Rivals250), a former “the other school in Los Angeles” commit recently spoke on his continuing interest in the possibility of donning Lightning Yellow and Thunder Green. “I keep in touch with Oregon pretty regularly and I hope they offer,” said Hunt. “Coach (John) Neal says stay patient and that they are definitely interested.” Playing both sides of the ball at the prep level, Hunt’s 5’10, 175 lb. frame may float around the depth chart before settling on a slated role.

Despite a commitment to “Kiffin’s lackies”, cornerback Chris Hawkins (4-Star/Rancho Cucamonga, CA/Rivals100) may wind up in Eugene for an official visit. “(Oregon is) a school I would love to check out and go to one of their games and see the atmosphere and see what it would be like to play up there,” said Hawkins. A 5’11, 170 lb. ball-hawk, Hawkins could add depth to the rising wave of Duck defensive backs if Neal continues to maintain contact.

More than a month removed from a visit to Oregon, linebacker Jeff Camilli’s (3-Star/Shingle Springs, CA) interest in playing his college ball for Chip Kelly & Co. hasn’t waned. “(Oregon is) one school I’d love to get an offer from.” Named Linebacker MVP at Oregon’s Football Camp, the 6’4, 245 lb. Camilli could potentially excel as a mobile backer for Defensive Coordinator Nick Aliotti.

Baseketball Recruiting


After a relativity quiet summer, Head Coach Dana Altman extended an offer to 2013 combo-guard Darin Johnson (NR/Elk Grove, CA). At 6’4, 195 lbs., Johnson possesses the ability to elevate and finish drives to the rim in traffic. “I am very interested in Oregon right now,” said Johnson. “They are an up and coming program, have good coaches, I think I fit into their style of play.” An Oakland Soldiers AAU team member, Johnson shared the court with incoming Duck point guard commit Dominic Artis (4-Star/Vallejo, NV/Rivals150) and aforementioned prospects Tyree and Tyrell Robinson.
