It looks to me like if Greg Gaines goes down they are in a world of trouble. I gotta wonder even how effective he's going to be without Vea commanding so much attention.

    If Chico McClatcher comes back to full strength (what was his injury?) and if Ty Jones can be as good as I think he'll be, the receiving core should at least be good enough to keep defenses honest and let Gaskin do his thing.


    Of course, and that is why I referenced those two DL's, especially DT Tuli Letuligasenoa, as my wish list for finishing the recruiting process. Chico is a decent receiver but he's 5'7" and runs a 4.55 40, his natural position is slot receiver. Ty Jones could end up being really good but I would have liked to see him get more experience as a freshman. I like the size though and an eventual tandem of Jones at 6'4" and Spiker at 6'3" is very appealing. Probably is going to be receiver-by-committee this year though.

    A little thin at DL but deep at LB and DB where I have zero concerns.

    PS: I believe Chico broke his ankle.

    This is very far from official but just reading around on some things on different boards looking for info on Jeremiah Martin and one of the mods on the Texas A&m site said that he was in contact with a uw insider and that insider said that UW would not have room for Martin. To me that implies that UW is probably getting Tuli as I think they’d have room for one, not both of Tuli and Martin.


    I have no idea how credible the A&M guy is, or who his UW contact is, or if my A+B=C assumption is correct. But that’s how I read the situation.

    Interesting I had heard they would find the room for both if they both wanted to come. But the things I hear are not always correct. I would definitely take Tuli if I had to choose.

  • Oregon mod Justin Hopkins (who in my biased opinion) is the best in the business just said that he’s hearing Tuli to UW is a done deal. Again, not official, but more smoke to the fire. Would be a good get at a big position of need.

    He also said their are some concerns about a knee problem with him. I don’t know how serious.

    This would be great news if true. If there's any way Petersen can do it, I am sure he would try his hardest to take both if they are amenable to that. It's a great opportunity for both to come in and get early playing time.

    2 issues with Tuli & SC. SC did not let him sign in the early signing period, heard that was an issue with Irvin also. Kenechi Udeze has been in talks with the 49'ers to be their DL coach. So the perceived early signing slight and coaching uncertainty are driving factors that point north.

    Word is Sewell to Oregon likely, but SC made some ground with their recent in-home as it was mostly focused on little brother Noah. Likely a package 2 for 1 here. Which isn't a bad thing, Noah is good on his own.

    I respect your sincerity Anajimmc but most of these rumors on recruiting boards turn out to be just that. I really have a lot of confidence in this coaching staff, regardless of whether we get either or both of those players I really like the class so I'm all good.

    I know, I eat em all up (rumors). The rumor guy for Sewell has a good track record, but even he says hard to read and ever changing.

    I'm hearing the same thing from the Oregon end on Sewell. Justin Hopkins (scoopduck.com if anyone is interested), is by far the guy with the most Oregon inside connections and he's saying Devon Williams is 100% a lock to Oregon. Oregon is confident on Sewell but its not a done deal yet (i think he put it at 75%). He basically said if the decision was made now it would be Oregon, but both USC and Alabama are still pushing hard. The Alabama mod just Crystal ball'd Sewell to Oregon today which is a big one since they're also in the conversation.

  • I tell ya, Williams is the one I covet. There a lot of smaller quick guys, and speed demons, But big athletic receivers are hard to come by and harder to defend.

    Oh my.

    Please, please, please go on the record and tell us who the 3 are that are likely not to sign with the ducks. Here are your options:

    Jalen hall
    Spencer Webb
    Elijah Winston
    teagon quintariano
    Andrew Johnson
    Justin johnson

    Winston is the only one who is slightly wavering and I hope he decommits cuz I don’t think he’s very good.

    The reason they didn’t sign before is because they hadn’t yet taken their official visits before the early signing day. They were scheduled to the weekend right before signing day when we got stuck playing in a crappy bowl game.


    Circling back on this, with two days remaining til signing day it sounds like Quintariano will not be signing with the Ducks on Wednesday. But he's not signing anywhere else either. Hes' got some legal stuff he has to work out involving a hazing incident with his basketball team. If it gets worked out he'll still be a Duck, but it wont be on signing day. (Remember, Wednesday is the first day of the signing period (and 99% will do it then, but they have all the way until I think April 1 to sign somewhere).

    The rest all appear to be rock solid as we go towards the finish.

    Agree'd. He's not Julio Jones, but if the Ducks land him he'll be the closest thing to Julio Jones/AJ green type we've ever had.

  • So here is the Oregon Duck signing day primer. Still a lot of balls up in the air and a lot of decisions to be made and battling some serious "blue bloods" for our final targets:

    Wide Receivers:

    Devon Williams. He's down to USC or Oregon. He's the guy on this list that Oregon insiders feel most confident about. He's making his announcement live on ESPN on signing day.

    Michael Ezeike: He's also down to USC and Oregon. My guess is that he goes to whichever Williams doesnt. He's a really good consolation prize (I'd very gladly take both if possible).

    Tre'Shaun Harrison: Florida State or Oregon. Its pretty much done for FSU, Oregon will just be a hat on the table. The only way this comes back to Oregon is if right at the end distance becomes to much of a factor and he decides to go where his family can see him play. But he seems to be a Willie Taggart guy.

    Jaylen Waddle: He's down to Texas A&M, Alabama and Oregon. This one is the pipe dream but he is on record as saying that Ducks offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo is the coach that he has the best relationship with in the country. However, I think the pull to Alabama is too strong. This dude is electric!!

    Offensive Line:

    Penei Sewell: Alabama, USC or Oregon. Most feel that Oregon currently leads but Alabama and USC are still pushing strong.

    Defensive Ends:

    Jeremiah Martin: Texas A&M, Washington, Oregon and maybe USC. Pass rushing specialist. Nobody seems to really have a good feel for where he ends up. Texas A&M insiders seem to be the most confident.

    Moro Ojomo: Texas or Oregon. With all those O's in his name he is made for Oregon. He's a defensive tackle.

    Joseph Ossai: Also down to Texas or Oregon. He's another edge rusher like Martin.

    My guess is that the Ducks will end up with 1 of those 3 dlinemen and if I had to guess it will be Ossai. There's a chance they might get 2 of them, and a chance they get none of them.

    There are also still a few backup options in play at WR and maybe LB but the names above are the guys to keep an eye on.

    If I had to guess the Ducks will finish the class with Williams, Sewell and either 1 or 2 of the other names listed here. Even if its just Williams and Sewell it will still be on paper the best class that Oregon has ever landed which is pretty remarkable considering that we're coming off of two lackluster seasons and we've had 3 head coaches trying to recruit kids in this recruiting cycle.

    One last thing if anybody is still reading. When Taggart was here he was intent on filling all the way up to 32 commits and trying to make the splash of a top 5 class. Cristobal is much more content with landing 25-27. The Ducks only have 10 graduating seniors next year so while it would have been exciting to be way up at the top of the rankings, its probably better for the long term health of the program to push some of this years available scholarships back to next year to try and even up the classes a little bit.

    All that said, crazy stuff happens in the last 48 hours and all of this could be completely different by tomorrow!

  • Oh, one more thing to add to the above post. There is also rumors of a big time incoming transfer that will be added to the Ducks roster sometime between signing day and spring football. The only hint that we've been given is that he's a big time guy. Dont even know the position and dont known if its a senior transfer or a hardship transfer that will be eligible immediatly or if its someone who will have to sit out a year.

    This isn't just a UW insider, this is purported to be a national recruiting insider.

    This isn't just a UW insider, this is a national recruiting insider.


    Which one? I follow just about all of them. Point me in the direction of the article and the info.


    C'mon, you know that these people can't reveal insider information at this stage of the game. Stay tuned.


    Yet they revealed it to you? I'll be waiting on the edge of my seat my man

  • As expected Tuli ImNotgoingtoattempttospellhislastname has flipped his commitment to UW. That will push UW's class at least temporarily past USC into 11th in the rankings.

  • After being committed to USC for more than nine months, four-star prospect Tuli Letuligasenoa will be coming to Washington instead.

    Letuligasenoa decided Monday he would back off his pledge from the Trojans to join UW and be part of the Huskies’ historic 2018 recruiting class. The story was first reported by Realdawg.com. It was later reinforced when members of the Huskies’ coaching staff tweeted about the team getting better. Huskies coach Chris Petersen soon followed by tweeting “Woof!!!!” which has become the official sign that they’ve locked up a recruit.

    Petersen and his staff have built the best recruiting class the school has enjoyed in the modern recruiting area.

    It’s a group that now features 11 composite four-star prospects. Both 247 Sports and Rivals deemed UW’s class as the No. 1 group in the Pac-12 prior to Letuligasenoa’s commitment.

    This is an amazing class and not just because of all the multi-star players but the makeup of the class. Somehow, Chris Petersen has been able to convince two of the top QB recruits to come here and compete with each other, that's no mean feat. We have a linebacker who is as good as any linebacker in the country, huge OL's including a 4-star offensive linemen, national top WR's, highly sought-after defensive backs who have witnessed multiple UDub defensive backs being drafted in the early rounds, and now a defensive tackle in the mold of Vita Vea.

    Enjoy the ride because: IT'S GREAT TO BE A HUSKY!!!

    Top QB's together usually means one a redshirt at least one year and a stagger so you get two senior seasons from them, good way to get them in one will start at some point and you have competition to see who is the back up to the typical incumbent.

    There is another possibility also. Jacob Eason, the former Gatorade National Football Player of the Year, is transferring from Georgia and is said to be thinking of joining those two at UW. Brock Huard said about Eason in a tweet: "I've seen a lot of talented throwers in person through my years: Patrick Mahomes, Favre, Stafford, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson...but as far as a teenager throwing the rock, this kid has no peers that I've seen."

    So, what happens if Eason beats out both of them? He has two years of eligibility left so here's my best scenario to keep all three of them:

    Redshirt one of the two as you say, Jake graduates, Eason plays two years, one of the two starts his senior season and then the redshirt plays his senior season the next year.

    Sounds like wishful thinking? Not necessarily, if you remember the James' era that's kinda how it went, you waited your turn. Yes, I know there were some exceptions (Billy-Joe) but for the most part that's how it went.

    Voila!

  • My "underrated recruit" in this years class is Devin Culp.

    He was originally bound for the Ducks but changed his mind.

    He's 6'5, a little slim, but I think he'll over 220 in a few years.

    Something about him reminds me of Brandon Marshall.

  • Jeremiah Martin Visit Report: 1 out of 10? He Gives Husky Visit a”15″

    “It was one of the best visits I've been on”, Martin said, “I mean, everyone else….the others were okay, but this was amazing. It was the best.”

    You can't read this unless you have a Realdawg subscription but I just wanted to post the quotes anyway.

    He does look very good in purple though.

  • Optimism level lowered in duck land today. Yesterday Devon Williams was thought to be a duck lock, 100%, today it sounds like usc still has a chance. Folks getting nervous as it comes down to the wire. I swear Oregon fans are the most insecure in the world.

    Ha! Yeah, I don't subscribe there, but she is ALL-OVER-IT as you say though. It seems eDuck has done something similar, lots of changes lately. Bit of paranoia too.

Rumors Rampant
Tue Feb 06, 2018 8:03 am
  • It's getting hairy out there, will USC pilfer Devon Williams and Penei Sewell from the dwindling ducks?

    Or will they land someplace else?

    Stay tuned sport's fans.

    When Ruth’s site was part of 247 network she and I used to have a love/hate relationship. We’d joke around, have fun, then I’d take it just a little too far and BAM two week ban for me. It was good times and all in the spirit of fun.

    I’ve never been on educk, I’ve heard mixed opinions on it. I used to be on 247, but I don’t think their Oregon mods now are very good, they’re more tied in with basketball recruiting than football recruiting. Now I spend all my time on scoopduck, which is awesome and busy.

National Signing Day Schedule
Tue Feb 06, 2018 8:53 am
  • I don't assign as much value to the rankings as some do and as much as 247's logarithm says it doesn't favor volume, all you have to do is look at USC's ranking to know it does. I think avg. pts. per recruit is maybe more accurate, but in the end, it's somewhat subjective anyway.

    NEVERTHELESS, it's something to do when you can't actually watch the greatest game in the world AND it definitely adds some suspense to the equation. Unfortunately, I will be traveling out of state by car :evil: tomorrow unless I can figure a way to get out of it.

    Anyway, here's a look at the schedule of signees.
