    Sirmon looks like a lab grown QB in the mold of Carson Palmer or recent local recruit Jacob Eason, but in the four games or so I've seen him play, I was thoroughly underwhelmed. He has a strong arm, but it wasn't particularly accurate and there were some body language concerns.

    It didn't shock me seeing Petersen add a second highly rated QB in this class.

    This is good news, kids from the west need to goto Pac 12 schools, plus, even though I like Notre Dame, in a profession with some truly abhorrent people, Brian Kelly may be the worst of them all, and I can only wish horrible things to happen to him.

    Brian Kelly is definitely on the short list. I'd put Arizona States Todd Graham at the top (or the bottom) of that list though. Everything i've read or heard about him screams absolute douchebag and asshole.

  • Ducks get a commitment from 6'7", 325 linemen from Chino, California Christopher Randazzo. He's a 2 star right now, but that will certainly be bumped up once he gets evaluated. Christobal discovered him and loves him.

  • 4 star wide receiver Warren Thompson from Florida commits to the Ducks. This is the first of 3 or 4 big time commitments this week. By 4th of July Oregon should have a top 3 class.

  • Huskies add 3 star offensive lineman from Arizona Matteo Mele. 6'6", 250 pounds. I've heard he has a high ceiling but will probably need a redshirt year to add weight and work on some technique.

    His weight is north of 275 at this point, that being said, I think all OL should redshirt.

    Ducks are still going hard after Yankoff too. I personally like Yankoff a lot more then Sirmon, although the experts have Sirmon more highly rated.

  • Man, watch this clip of Xavier Thomas, the number 1 player in the country. (Going to Clemson). I would kill to have a dude like this on the ducks. I dont know who the o'linemen is, but this is at The Opening, which is an invite only football camp that invites the best of the best from the whole country.... so its not some chump he's going up against.

    Indeed. Got another huge one today. OLB Andrew Johnson from Tifton, Georgia. He's just a 3 star but he has offers from Alabama, Georgia, Florida State and all of the big boy schools down there. Kids a beast. About 9 spots left to fill.

    Not a commitable offer, no. He had a backup plan offer. Not taking shots at the kid, but there's a reason he's only a 2 star on some sites. (Max unger was also a 2 star olinemen and became an all pro).

    There are a couple of duck commits I'm not crazy about either.

    Thanks for the reply though, I was starting to think I was talking to myself in this thread.

    Ha ha. So I don't follow recruiting too much until a week or so before signing day. I do read about kids if they sign and check in every once in awhile. I admit I didn't know what a non-commitable offer was until I googled it. How do you know it was non-commitable and why would taggart have non-commitable offers out there this early in the process? Non-commitable or not, Taggart was interested.

    It's interesting, UW and UO right now are just about complete opposites in recruiting philosophies. Under Chris Petersen the Huskies are very selective in who they offer. They will pretty much only offer guys if they're ready to accept a commitment from them (under Chip Kelly and Mark Helfrich the Ducks were the same way). To be honest, its a much more ethical way of recruiting.

    Under Taggart the Ducks are taking more of a shot gun approach to recruiting, and they play "the game" a little bit more.
    They have thrown out 100's of offers, probably 3 or 4 times more than UW has. Some of those kids will get offered then hardly even be recruited. Some will get offered and be in constant communication with the coaching staff, but will be slow played and pushed back if they try and commit. Its a way of keeping back up options if things fall through with the top targets. That's the category that Ale fell in with the ducks.

    Right now Oregon has 21 commits and probably room for 7 or 8 more. They have offers out to about 300 kids all across the country but there are probably only about 15-20 who they are actively recruiting and would accept commits from. I know of at least 3 kids with offers who have tried to commit but have been told thanks but no thanks. Its kind of slimy and unethical, but its recruiting.

    Not "just big".

    Three time Australian Golden Gloves heavyweight boxing champion, and a high level rugby player until moving to Tacoma a few years ago.

    Only exposed to football for a couple of years now and while he's got a big learning curve, he's a really good athlete for a kid of his size.

    Thats funny, I dont know a lick about scouting o'linemen, but the guys who I trust said that his biggest problem is that he doesnt play with enough aggression, which is pretty wierd coming from a boxer and rugby player. And this criticism was from back when the Ducks offered him, long before he became a Husky, so its not just sourgrapes.

    In any case, I think scouting and projecting o'linemen from high school to college is just about the toughest position. Many high ranked guys become nothing, and many low or unranked guys become studs. Time will tell. I also read some guys on the Husky site speculating that he might move to d'line. So, we'll see.

    He's a teddy bear of a kid, but I think any hesitation he plays with is more a factor of him just not really knowing what the hell he was doing. His exposure to football pre highschool was essentially nil.

    Also, don't be surprised if he's announced as a DT by the time signing day rolls around. There's a Canadian OL prospect that the coaching staff is doing some more work on, and if they decide to offer, Ale may flip to DL, he's similar in size and athleticism to Vita Vea.

    http://www.hudl.com/video/3/6099606/583 ... 2fe82ac815

    Washington's class is up to 18th in the country. I believe (dont quote me on this) they have room for about 5 more guys.

    He was ready to commit to Oregon earlier in the Summer until family made him wait, but he seems pretty solid now with his decision so I don't expect a flip.

    Big kid, feet probably will never be good enough for an elite LT, but could be an absolute mauler at RT.

    Also, it gets reported that Shelton is his uncle, but that's not true, the families are just super close and Kalepo refers to Shelton as his uncle.
