Recruiting Update: Linebackers Keen on Oregon

Oregon’s recruiting haul over the last week is becoming the stuff of legends as the 2015-16 class is shaping up to be one of the greatest in school history. Linebacker LaMar Winston’s (4-Star/Portland, Ore./Rivals250) pledge to his home-state Ducks is already creating a ripple effect along the recruiting trail as several uncommitted preps are now on borrowed time in their program decision-making process.

Linebackers’ coach Erik Chinander is waiting to learn the future of long-time Oregon target Bryce Youngquist (4-Star/Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Rival250) as the depth chart around Eugene is rapidly filling.

Oregon has always been high on my list,” said Youngquist. “There isn’t anything bad about the school. Eugene is a great city, a football town and I love the program.”

A 6’2″, 210 lb. speedster with brawn in reserve, Youngquist fits Chinander’s mold of a nimble linebacker who pushes opposing quarterbacks from sideline to sideline. Originally slated to announce his program decision following his senior season, Youngquist now expects to make a decision in the next two or three weeks. Stay tuned!

Lightning Yellow & Thunder Green’s tug on recruits continues to impress as “committed-elsewhere” targets continue to keep in contact with the Oregon brass. One such prep, quarterback Terry Wilson (3-Star/Del City, Okla.) keeps in contact with offensive coordinator Scott Frost and is believed to be visiting Eugene next week. Said to be only considering his commitment to Nebraska and Oregon, Wilson will get a first-hand look at the nation’s premier facilities and could be a prime candidate to flip his pledge to that of a greener variety.
