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.
