    1. I personally know the person that edited his "I commit to Oregon" edit for him before his mom jumped into the picture. You can believe it or not, doesnt really matter, because hes going to UW.

    2. Oregon recruiting is just getting started. Wait til you see what we finish up with this cycle. We've got 2 five stars still coming, plus a few more high 4 stars. I have zero worries in that department.

    a large number of your current "commits" are taking multiple visits. let's see where y'all are at when you're 2-5 in conference in a month.

  • I think UW is gonna finish with a strong class. I have no doubt Oregon's will be rated higher as it will take time to change the reputation of the two programs. but that is half the game. if recruiting were all that mattered USC would win the pac-12 every season. the way taggart runs his program is very sark-like.

    I'd welcome a UW Oregon rivalry where both teams are top 10, especially given UW and Oregon don't seem to be recruiting the same players. ND and Stanford are killing us.

    Yep, Taggarts rule is that commits can take as many visits as they want, as long as Oregon gets the final visit. I love that rule personally. Losing a few games wont be a problem, they commited to a 4-8 team. They knew it was a rebuilding project when they commited. Just gotta keep pushing hope for the future, which there is tons of. Defense is massively improved and offense was top 5 in the country before injuries hit. I'm sure there will be a decommit or two though, there always is, and I have full confidence in this staff to replace them with other studs. The 2nd 5 star is Devon Williams, athlete from Los Angeles.

    Curious, did you hear anything about how Tommy Togiai's visit went? That dude is a stud.

    Btw, i'm not completely sold on Taggart as an x's and o's coach. But I am completely sold on the staff he built, especially defensively.

    ruth is claiming it went super well and we may even be the leaders now, which doesn't surprise me and I'm not buying.

  • malloe needs to and will be replaced this offseason. he can coach DL that is for sure, but like with strausser if you can't recruit you have to go (kwitkowski the one exception). and he's not a good recruiter

    Really? You think they'll fire Malloe? I figured he might be your d'coordinator in waiting (assuming Jimmy Lake gets a head coach job or big time D. Coordinator position somewhere else)

  • if UW can finish with
    2 of taimani, tremblay, and togiai. (I think we get tremblay and taimani feels like either we're neck and neck with ND or leading)
    1 of martin and Kaho (I think we get him)
    and then 1 or both of Irvin and Gordon it'll be a great class.
    Not sure about RB but given how deep we are in that position I'm not sure it matters. Not in love with Newton or Brown

    kwitkowski is the D-coordinator, and he's not going anywhere. I do think malloe gets fired unless he saves himself this recruiting cycle.

    He seems like a great coach. Although you're right, his recruiting doesnt seem up to par.

    For what its worth, Jhop says that Oregon is in a pretty good spot with Tremblay. We'll see what happens. Thanks for participating in this thread though, i love talking about this stuff. Recruiting is a year long roller coaster.

  • The number 2 overall player in the 2019 class. DT from Louisiana. I'm guessing he'll probably end up at Alabama or LSU, but still cool to see:

  • This article is from 2014 it shows that bad coaching staffs will ruin any recruit regardless of star rating.

    http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/10 ... igning-day

    I would trust Chris Petersen with the 100th rated class more then I would trust Willie Taggart with the number 1 class.

    Just look at Oregon's top performing class of 2008 was ranked 8th in the conference.

    https://oregon.247sports.com/Season/200 ... ll/Commits

    It is all about coaching who can turn a homesick 18-year old into a football force in three years.

    Player development under Helfrich was nonexistent. There were some good coaches on that staff, but I think even the good coaches were burnt out. Taggart's staff, especially the defensive side, is freaking amazing at developing and using talent. The improvement of both the individuals, as well as the whole, is off the charts. Offensively I don't think there is as much of a difference, but there wasn't nearly as much room for improvement. I don't know about Taggart himself, but he built an incredible staff that I wouldn't trade for anyone else in the country, especially on the defensive side. Leavitt, Salave'a, Clark and Heyward were worth every penny.

    sark brought on Wilcox, Tosh, Sirmon, etc. and while the recruiting and defense improved the team was still an undisciplined mess.

    Ohio State mod says if togiai decides today it's likely UW.

    Will announce in December because it sounds like his coach is pushing tOSU and told him to hold off. Won't even visit USC.
    this would be gigantic.

    Would be a huge get. If he's not announcing til December the Huskies need to worry about the post visit glow wearing off. Obviously distance favors Washington in this one, but Urban Meyer usually gets his man. Togiai is a beast. If that happens you may have to rescind your "fire Malloe" idea.

    Are you a member over at realdawg? Whats your name there? I've been banned from that place more times then I can count, usually just for being a smartass, not even for saying anything bad. My current banning was because I asked why any recruit would want to wear the color purple. Ruth doesnt have much of a sense of humor.

    I just lurk there really.


    And as for firing malloe, I will gladly praise malloe if he pulls this off. I may even finally get over tuiapulotu

    Did you see that Tuipaloto is out for the year after back surgery? You might have dodged a bullet on that one. Back problems can't be good for a DT.
