News The epicenter of prep football resides in Beaverton for the next week, seeing several key preps with Oregon ties showcasing their skills on a national stage. Not far from his own stomping grounds, vaunted local linebacker Lamar Winston (4-Star/Portland, Ore./Rivals250) will make the quick trip to Nike headquarters for what promises to be an exhibition of his under-the-radar prowess as a mid-level defender.
In addition, the 6’3″, 205 lb. athlete will announce his long-awaited program choice near the conclusion of Nike’s flagship camp on July 9th, prompting a perceived domino effect in Oregon’s approach to the rest of the ’15-’16 recruiting cycle. “I like what Oregon offers about furthering my education. They offer a lot of support to the student athletes,” said Winston. “They have a good network and there are a lot of doors that open after college from Oregon. I love the family aspect and the way coaches are with their players. I really get along with coach [Erik] Chinander and [Don] Pellum too. We have a great relationship.”
