News 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 …

Nik Brownlee Recruiting 3 Comments

As the rollercoaster Oregon football season continues, the recruiting season is keeping Duck fans guessing also.
