  • Johnson was solid to Miami
    Tui was solid to UW
    Tufele was a Utah lean.
    Now suddenly?

    USC is definitely back to their old dirty tricks.
    They've been pulling offers from commits this past month to make room for this. For as much as I hate things like this, I at least have some respect for how Petersen does business

    Add to that they're the favorites to land Pili. That's some serious DL recruiting right there.

    Whether he goes to USC or UW, the most telling fact is that he and the other top recruit want nothing to do with the ducks. I get it if it is a choice between UO and the trees with their elite education but he is choosing strictly on football.

    Even one of the ducks most promising receivers for next year, Jalen Brown, has withdrawn to finish his eligibility at another program. This, after the hire of Taggart, whom ducks are touting as the next coming of Saban/Meyer with his mighty 40-45 record.

    And, the players kicked of team for crimes ranging from DUI to assault.

    Not to mention three players sent to the hospital, with two being serious enough to stay for an entire week and still not released.

    Everything is so great in duckland that they have nothing better to do than spend an inordinate amount of time bagging on the Huskies.


    UO went 4-8, and still beat your crap coach and team.

  • There was a recent exodus at one of the Oregon sites a couple weeks ago. The insider there has showed up on the forum I've been reading for years now and dropped this info

    Reaves arrest hurt Ducks a little. More so this weekend with the visitors. Especially with a distance kid like Ellis Brooks.

    Couple guys were gonna commit and held off because of Reaves news. (Gibson/Judson) Oregon could still get both pretty easily. (As of today)

    Oregon is not going to take Tyler Johnson.

    George Moore will visit Baylor and Utah this week. He loves Mario Cristobal, I think Oregon snags him. No done deal yet.

    Greg Johnson will sign with Nebraska IMO. (As of today)

    Oregon is out for Stephen Carr. He signs with USC.

    Ducks will get Lenoir.

    Put Habibi-Likio on Quack Watch.

    Marlon Tuipulotu will not be visiting Oregon.

    Joseph Lewis didn't visit Oregon this weekend. Won't be making a trip before signing day either.

    Tongamoa = Quack Quack (On NSD)

    Ameer Speed is one to watch. Could be a real surprise there.

    Josh Falo, nothing new, he's visiting the last weekend for a reason. Still think Oregon sneaks this one out even though they don't have a TE coach now.

    Jhop is THE man when it comes to Oregon football recruiting. Sucks what happened to him at 247. The exodus was because he got fired from 247. Wherever he ends up for his next gig is where most Oregon recruiting fans will be.

  • All in all sounds like Oregon will come out with a pretty solid class

    Next year is the year to watch. Need Oregon to win like 8 games and score a lot of points to generate a lot of excitement again. Only way to get up to top 10 in recruiting again.

    Also, never thought Carr would come to Oregon. RB depth right now at Oregon is ridiculous, especially with Freeman coming back.

    Cj Vardell is a stud as well. He's absolutely underrated as a 3 star. He's going to be very good. Felix will also be a good running back, although he may play more in the slot.

    I think we're still going to get one more running back. AJ Davis and Cordarrian Richardson are both visiting Eugene this upcoming weekend. We should get one or the other.

    Or Ford to the DL...

    I've been waiting for a Kirkland offer and happy it happened. Regardless of getting or not getting Ford (whom I want as well) I hope UW points a full court press on Kirkland.

    Ever noticed how Oregon recruits are always "underrated."

    And then, "absolutely" underrated? Owing to the fact that all of the star recruiting outlets have him at 3-star, it would seem that he is absolutely rated right where he should be.

    But, if it looks like they might go to UW, 3-star recruits all of a sudden are not Pac-12 caliber?

    If multiple sites list you as 3-star you are most assuredly a Pac-12 caliber player.

    Ducks also offered Kirkland a few days ago. And we're all hoping he either sticks with UCLA or goes to UW. I'm not going to pretend to be a scout or anything, and even if i were i think o'linemen are the toughest to project, but all the guys i know who pay attention to high school football and know there stuff dont think Kirkland is a pac 12 caliber player. The most common thought is that he's just a big guy who leans on people. Big upper body, small lower body, and plays really stiff. So in conclusion, i too hope that you get him.

    I know he's scheduled to visit Eugene on Tuesday. And then he's visiting UCLA this weekend. The Oregon mod said that he's likely to visit UW inbetween those.

    Jhop has been calling this one for months too. Ever since he commited to UW he said he wouldnt end up there, and would likely end up at USC. It was his high school coach, who played for Petersen at Boise State, that was pushing him to UW more then anything.

    Really hurts UW because they didnt land a DT in last years class, and he was the only one in this class. If Vea and Gaines both go pro after this season, which is likely, they're looking at serious depth issues at DT. Makes that Gaye dude pretty much a must get for UW at this point.

  • It's odd they can't recruit better after the season they had

    With the decommit they're currently at about 23 in the country

    Maybe they finish strong? If not, that's a poor effort for a team in their position

    the bump usually comes the year after.

    The problem in recruiting is that Petersen by his nature hates buzz and runs his program accordingly.

    OL and DL recruiting need to be reevaluated for sure. Altho some of the guys they have on the Dline are outstanding, just not enough total

    It was never going to be high. Only 17 spots available. Unlike other programs UW doesnt over recruit and then run kids

    A year ago I would have agreed. Anyone who's seen him this year wouldn't say that. Completely different player. He's definitely a pac12 caliber player if someone says he isn't theyre lying

    if that were the case he should have never committed at all. left UW in a bad spot at a bad time.

    I rarely ever get angry at a kid or his family, sarrell included even tho he never really gave UW a real look, but after how this went down I have little respect for him and his family

    yes it's still a good class overall. bad on the lines unless we can pull in someone good before this season ends.

    A number of very good DB's, a few talented LB'ers. a great WR class.

    It was never going to be high. Only 17 spots available. Unlike other programs UW doesnt over recruit and then run kids

    I love, love Ahmed. He's one of my favorite players in this entire class, regardless of the school he's attending. Ty Jones is underrated, I think he's going to be really good. And Hunter Bryant is a beast. Its a bummer you guys lost Connor Weddington as well, he looked really good the other day in the Polynesian bowl.

    Regardless of rankings, UW's staff is pretty damn good at coaching them up.

    Big loss for Washington.


    Oregon has several decommits as well and I've heard from an Oregon insider that the recent coaching debacles, and potential lawsuits from the hospitalized players, have several players on the verge of switching.

    It was always going to be a small class this year anyway so the rankings that give weight to more players don't always reflect the quality of the athletes. For instance, UW has 10 4-star and 4 3-star while Oregon is almost exactly the opposite with 6 4-star and 10 3-star players.

    It would seem that UW is recruiting higher quality football players.

    He did indeed commit tonight. Ali Gaye, 3 star DE from Edmonds, Washington (moved to the United States from Gambia 5 years ago). 6'6", 260.

    That link lists him at 260 and Scout lists him at 270. At his age and height he has plenty of room to grow, could play multiple positions.

    Husky defensive coaching staff is at the top of the Pac so the sky is the limit for this kid.

    I found this pic that says it's him but it looks different from his other pics. Is this him? (he looks 30 here)

  • Not comparing them as coaches. It's the situations that are similar. Only one usc coach in the last 20 years has been able to manage the incredible hype machine that they have there.

    Helton won a ton of games last year without any pressure. Same thing that usc did in 2011. USC then opened #1 and we're prematurely crowned pac-12 champions in 2012. Sound familiar?

    I don't know much about Helton's character but there were reports of him trying to purge recruits after SC went on their winning streak last year and were able to attract better recruits. That's cheap and it has also been speculated that Willie Taggart was trying to open up scholarships by purging some players at Oregon. Is that what inspired intense workouts eight months before the season even started?

    These kids are treated like expendable pieces of meat at some schools and they are completely without representation. They need to form a union. At the very least recruits shoud be wary of schools that play this game with young people's lives.

    The "oh you're his mom" type of response adds nothing to the conversation. Also, I've been a member of this site since 2010 and am known to be a rational poster.

    USC always gets good recruits when they are winning because of the University's tradition in college football. Having good recruiters on staff just ensures more of them come. It's the height of hyperbole to claim shady stuff is going on just because Helton and staff are closing well.

    Oh and yes, he is a good person. Just like Pete Carroll is. I was accused of being his mom too back in the day, but then people actually realized I was correct.

    Maybe he wants to win a championship. Better chance at that in the next few years at USC then at uw, IMO. Plus he wants to play with his buddy Jay Tufele.

    High value recruits want to get to the NFL and as quickly as possible. Anyone who thinks they place championships above that is naive. In '15 the Huskies put three defensive players in the first round of the NFL draft, this year they will add at least two more. Especially, when it comes to defense, there isn't a better place to be.

    It was a joke, lighten up. :2thumbs:

    But if what I've heard about is even half way true about some of the things Helton has done behind the scenes during the recruiting process (some have to do with marlon, some not) he's not close to the saint you make him out to be. But alls fair in recruiting...until it's not.

  • There seems to be some concern that the Husky's recruiting ranking has dropped. A good part of that ranking is based on points and teams with more recruits will naturally be given more points. If you go by the individual average ranking, the real value of the class, the Huskies would be ranked #10.

    In fact the Huskies, in spite of USC's recent coup, are currently out-recruiting USC in terms of individual recruit average.

    And, to say that USC is the clear favorite to win the Pac is pure hyperbole, USC will lose 11 starters from last year's class. UW has a very favorable schedule and almost all their skill players returning on offense. Given that, UW has an excellent chance to win the Pac.

    So, what, Helton was threatening to deport his family if he didnt commit to USC? I cant imagine how immigration status would play into recruiting... (not saying that you're wrong, just cant figure out how it would factor in).

    Honestly, recruiting is just a slimy, slimy business and nothing would really surprise me, and no schools are above it. Even Coach Petersen at UW, who i'll admit probably is not as slimey as most. UW doesnt let their commited kids visit other schools, but they have no problem trying to get kids commited to other schools to visit them and flip to them. When it comes to recruiting, everybody rolls around in the mud, some just get dirtier then others.
