Summer is upon us. Life along the recruiting trail is getting its first glimpse of heat rising off the ever-changing national landscape.
Oregon’s move into California has been well-documented as of late with increasing interest in standout JUCO corner, Devron Davis (3-Star/Merced, CA).
“I really like the offer from Oregon,” said Davis. “Oregon is short on defensive backs and they need some physical help at defensive back. They like me at corner and they like that I’m bigger and I can run.”
A sturdy 6’0, 210 lbs., Davis can be an imposing corner but also a prime candidate to step into the rover position for defensive backs’ headman, John Neal.
Heavy hitting by nature appeals to Davis, who relishes the chance to play against pass-heavy competition — which could eventually direct him permanently to Eugene.
“I love the way the offenses throw the ball a lot and that gives me a lot of chances to make plays.”
“I definitely want to visit Oregon [for an official] …” Bledsoe said. “I know [it] will be in September …”
An imposing 6’5, 265 lbs., Bledsoe is the quintessential Oregon drop-end target. A strong relationship with former NFL-turned Oregon D-line coach, Ron Aiken, could be the hinge-point to bring the affectionately nicknamed “Moose” to greener pastures.

FishDuck Going to Articles on Monday and Tuesday Only…
Our off-season schedule begins, and we move from publishing articles seven days a week to Mondays and Tuesdays only. Same great group of writers, and we will have an article on other days on occasion.
The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there. At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.
Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!
