RB Dontre Wilson (4-Star/De Soto, TX/Rivals250)


Following a rumor-filled weekend, head coach Chip Kelly declined a move to the NFL and will return to Oregon for the foreseeable future. Subsequent recruiting storylines will intensify and likely resolve as Kelly & Co. move forward in Eugene. Reactions from preps were almost instantaneous as news of Kelly’s return trickled out. “It’s an amazing feeling knowing that I will be playing with a phenomenal coach,” said running back Thomas Tyner (5-Star/Beaverton, OR/Rivals#4RB). Echoing his sentiments was Dontre Wilson (4-Star/DeSoto, TX/Rivals250), “I’m solid to the Ducks and I can’t wait to win a natty next year and break some records.”


This coming Saturday, Oregon will host No.1-rated JUCO dual-threat quarterback Tanner McEvoy (4-Star/Yuma, AZ). In what some are perceiving as a clear indicator of an impending transfer by Bryan Bennett, McEvoy’s run-and-gun mentality and 6’6″, 200 lb. frame would make him an ideal backup for current headman Marcus Mariota.

A possible round-out to Oregon’s aforementioned running back class, late recruiting-bloomer Rennie Childs (3-Star/Houston, TX) is a prospect to watch as signing day approaches. Standing 5’10”, 180 lbs., Childs utilizes excellent field vision to slash and in some cases bulldoze his way to pay dirt, stay tuned!

Our 32 rules can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) keep it clean, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!

Take note though, there are NO STRIKES, NO WARNINGS, and NO SLACK given. Violate the rules and you are gone, as this is what the 99% who post superb comments want. (The Ban could be for weeks, months or permanent) For the less than 1% out there who do not have impulse-control … as you write your comment that violates our rules, ask yourself, “is this worth getting banned over?”
