Oregon’s 11th straight victory over the “not-so-noisy northern neighbors” paid big dividends along the recruiting trail as several big names were in town to take in the spectacle that is Autzen Stadium.

Among the visitors, tabbed athlete Tevis Bartlett (3-Star/Cheyenne, WY) found himself smack in the middle of Oregon’s plan going forward.

Coach (Don) Pellum and coach (Erik) Chinander both said they like me at inside linebacker.” said Bartlett. “They went over the Washington game plan with me and told me how they could use me and how I would fit in there. It was great to see it in action and watch it on the field.”

The stout 6-foot-4, 215 lb. defender is the type of athlete that will find his mold under the guidance of Chinander.

While on the sidelines, Bartlett spent ample time interacting with his weekend-mates, including nationally touted defensive lineman Rasheem Green (5-Star/Gardena, CA/Rivals100) (see highlights below).

The visit went very well for me,” said Green. “I hung out with the players and got to experience gameday in Eugene which was pretty impressive. It was very different to see the whole town centered around the football team. You can tell the town takes pride in the team.”

The 6-foot-4, 290 lb. Green had previously taken a trip to Eugene but was visibly upbeat during a second, more familiar experience.

“The game day atmosphere was impressive. That’s what impressed me the most I think. I know Rasheem liked it, too,” said Bartlett. “We spent a little time talking with one another and he seemed pretty impressed. It was a great visit; I don’t think it could have gone any better.”

Commanding a Ducks offer, Bartlett could quack in the very near future and could easily find his way to early playing time with his athletic prowess at the ‘backer level. In the trenches, only time will tell in regards to Green who continues to project a strong connection with Oregon. Stay tuned!
