Recruiting Update: Oregon Commit Reaches Out

As the so-called recruiting junkie for this site, I perhaps am the most anxious of everyone to see how this current campaign’s success affects the future.

Enter current Oregon commit La’Mar Winston (4-Star/Portland, Ore./Rivals250). While most high school seniors can barely see past the surface of wins/losses, Winston not only understands what’s at stake, but is rallying the troops in the face of adversity.

And he’s taking a jab at USC in the process.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound linebacker could be one of the more important recruits in Oregon’s pocket moving forward as his unabashed loyalty is on full display.

Despite the mishaps last Saturday, another linebacker Caleb Kelly (5-Star/Fresno, Calif./Rivals100) indicated that time spent in Eugene was eye-opening.

Oregon definitely moved up the list for me,” said Kelly. “I didn’t really know a lot about Oregon before. I didn’t really know the coaches that well. I spent a ton of time with (Don) Pellum and coach (Eric Chinander).

“In fact I hung out with them more than anyone else. I really liked them, they were very cool. I didn’t have a great feel for them from before but now I do. It’s amazing to think coach Pellum has been there 29 years. That’s longer than I’ve been alive.”

Kelly is already imposing at 6-foot-3, 214-lbs and would no doubt only add to his physical prowess once on campus. Continued contact between both parties only paves the way to a favorable result come signing day; stay tuned!
