A slew of offers to the nation’s elite seems to be the tone early in the 2015-16 recruiting cycle. Look no further than Oregon’s recent nod to hard-hitting safety Brandon Jones (4-Star/Nacogdoches, TX/Rivals100).
“I’ve been waiting on that one (offer) for a while,” said Jones. “… I already know Oregon will be in my top five when I put that out there. They are already in that group. I’ve dreamed of an Oregon offer since I was in the seventh grade.”
At 5-foot-10, 185 lbs., Jones plays above his height and consistently mixes it up in the passing lanes. No stranger to contact, Jones is the type of opportunistic defensive back that epitomizes Oregon’s deep coverage.
“I know I want to visit Oregon. I might go up with (Oregon QB commit) Seth Green (4-Star/Allen, Texas) if he goes up. He’s been recruiting me for a while and we’ve gotten close. If I get invited to ‘The Opening’ we might go up early or stay longer and visit Oregon then too… it’s definitely an important visit for me.”
Package deal anyone? Stay tuned, WTD!!!

FishDuck Salutes this Oregon Community…
I continue to be amazed at the quality of writing and the thought given to the posts/comments below the articles. I am very grateful that everyone has embraced the posting/commenting rules of this community as it has made my job a ton easier.
We have had as many as 3,000 posts a number of times before I ever have to delete one, and that just doesn’t happen on the web these days. My percentage of deletions to comments/posts is between one to two tenths of 1%, of which is stunning.
The new forum is delayed due to tech issues and my own life issues, but this Oregon Sports Community is going to be very special with the same rules and decorum that we presently see every day.
I salute you all for your thoughtfulness and respect toward fellow Duck fans. The Best is Yet to Be!
