Oregon’s resurgence in the 2015 campaign couldn’t be coming at a better time as the fall recruiting push is in full swing.
Just to the south, tabbed athlete Damian Alloway (4-Star/Fontana, Calif./Rivals250) made his thoughts known about a move to Eugene.
“If Oregon offers that’s going to put them right at the top,” said Alloway. “I’m definitely going to visit right away if I get that offer. I love the offense, it’s a perfect fit for me. I’ve dreamed of playing at Oregon so that’s going to be a big one [offer] if I get it.”
A 5-foot-10, 170-pound speedster, Alloway has made his mark all over the field but will most likely settle at slot receiver once he makes the transition to the collegiate level.
“I’m just looking forward to the experience of an official visit […] to see Oregon,” said Schaffer. “I want to get the student-athlete aspect and the game experience. I’m really high on Oregon, I’m very excited for this visit and to see the program firsthand.”
An incredibly athletic 6-foot-7, 280 pounds, Schaffer is the type of recruit that could be turned into a perennial all-American. That honor would fall to defensive line headman Ron Aiken and could immediately rejuvenate a position group in question heading into next season; stay tuned!
