    Just my opinion.

    There were I think 9 4 stars in Oregon this year, huganga (usc), Lenzy (Notre Dame) and Cota (UCLA) were the only ones I liked. The majority of Oregon high school players are overrated because they play crap competition, in my opinion. Including the ones signing with Oregon.


    C'mon, get real. If he decommits, "we didn't want him anyway." If he commits, he's a "borderline" 5-star. Very entertaining.



    Go back and read my post when he commited. The nicest thing I said about him was that his brother plays for the ducks.


    It seems to me this whole thing about Oregon players playing against "crap" competition started when some of the top Oregon players started choosing UDub over Oregon.

    Portland is a major metropolitan area, are you saying there is no competition there?

    Portland has notoriously bad football. The last time a Portland league team won the high school state championship was 1988. They produce a lot of basketball players, very few football players.

    This year Clackamas high school won the state title, they won’t put a single player into power 5 college football..

    They're Portland metropolitan area kids. That's what I wrote, Portland is a major metropolitan area. You won't find the best players coming from inside the city limits of Seattle either, it's 3A football, that doesn't mean they aren't Seattle area kids.

    Alright, fair enough. I was misunderstanding you. I thought you were talking about inner city Portland proper. I'm from here so I dont really consider all of those suburbs as part of Portland.

    Still, that misunderstanding aside, that list of players still proves my point. I dont think there's a player on that list that would ever be a regular starter at either UW or UO., and this is considered a banner year for Oregon high school talent.

    Lenzy would get into the rotation and make some plays, but i dont think he'd ever be "the man".

    Jaramillo, Winston and Cunningham are all commited to the Ducks. I think Jaramillo will be a rotation player eventually, i doubt he's ever a starter. Winston and Cunningham will be special teams players and mop up duties at best in their careers. If I had to bet i'd bet they end up transferring down to a lower division after getting buried on the deptch chart.

    Bynum and Lowe are going to UW. I'd bet Bynum has a similar career to Jaramillo. He'll get some playing time but i doubt he ever starts. Lowe i doubt ever even sniffs the field. (I'm sure you'll argue with me and tell me how great they are... but in reality, this is a compliment to UW's football team. Lowe is rated as a 4 star and I dont think he's anywhere near good enough to play for UW).

    I"ve never even heard of the last 4 names on the list. But I know they're not good enough to get scholarship offers from Oregon or Washington.

    Hufanga, from Corvallis, is the Oregon player who's going to be a first round nfl draft pick someday. He's heading to USC.

    And look, its all in the eye of the beholder. I'm sure there are some players that I really like a lot that you dont, and i'm sure there are players that you dont like that i do. There are Huskies I dont like, there are Ducks I dont like, there are Seahawks I dont like. There are also Huskies that I love (i'd take Yankoff over any player Oregon has commited). Its not an "Oh, he commited to UW, he sucks!" thing. Its just a, "in my personal opinion he's not very good" thing. (not very good obviously being relative. Obviously theyre all much better football players then I ever was cuz they're getting college scholarships to play). But you know as well as I do that not all scholarship players work out.

    And that my friend might be the longest post i've ever made in my 15 years on this site.

  • So youre telling me that you think the guys in the Portland area are playing against similar competition as guys in So Cal, Texas, Florida, Georgia, parts of Utah, Alabama, Ohio, Lousiana etc, etc? I'd take a 3 star from any of those states over a 4 star from Oregon almost every single time because of the competition they play.

    And no, i dont really care or pay that much attention to Oregon STate or Washington STate when it comes to recruiting because we almost never are competing for the same players.

    Lol, I've never seen anyone backpedal so much in my life. I just said that there are going to be more in more heavily populated areas but that doesn't mean that there can't be 4-star players from the Portland area, there just won't be as many. There are always going to be a certain percentage of elite athletes in any population, that's just a scientific fact. Do you think the people making these evaluations make a bias for Portland players? Do the coaches who also evaluate also do that?

    You are over-engaged in the hype.

    BTW, you aren't competing for the same players? Maybe you should be, you might be able to beat them one of these years. Apparently that doesn't extend to the WSU coaches whom you are pilfering one after another.

    I think a guy like Trey Lowe playing against the competition up here looks like a super star. Put a guy like Trey Lowe in a league in Louisiana and I think he's probably a 2nd or 3rd string running back at a lot of schools down there. So yes, Trey Lowe is a 4 star playing in Oregon and probably wouldnt be ranked as high playing in Louisiana. Coaches make mistakes in evaluations all the time. Look back at Chris Peterson's classes at WAshington a bunch of dudes never amount to anything. Dabo Sweeney and Nick Saban recruit guys that never amount to anything. Its not an exact science. Every coach in the country makes mistakes in evaluations. I am sharing my opinion of who is good and who isnt. It doesnt make me right. It makes it my opinion.

    If youre still here in 4 years we'll look back and see what kind of careers Jaramillo, Bynum, Lowe, Winston and Cunningham had. And if they turn into solid players yo'ure more then welcome to call me out on it. I really hope that in 3 of those cases i'm wrong. But right now you dont know that they're going to be good any more then i think that they won't.

  • I know you guys have talked about this a bit but I'm really hoping to close out the class by stealing Tuli Letuligasenoa from USC. He's a perfect fit here with the departure of Vita Vea and there's a logjam at his position at USC.

    This would make 21 commits, I have heard that we might take another depending on who's available but Petersen likes to recruit 17-20 recruits each year to keep his classes balanced.

  • I'm into recruiting as it's an extension of the on field competition. All of these high school kids are very good against high school competition. Some of these kids appear to be on a level greater than all the others around them and appear to be can't miss recruits. Well there are far more misses than hits. There are so many variables that go into the equation, relative physical maturity, mental maturity, level of competition, going from being the big thing to just being one of the guys, etc. Over the years I've worried about that can't miss talent that got away, and they never even make the field. So I'll get excited about the kids SC signs, and wish the others good luck, except that week that they step on the field against SC.

    Good post Anajimmc, I have experienced this process on a very personal level and I know that these are really good kids. As competitive as I am, I would rather have an eight-win coach whose ethics are beyond reproach that a 10-11 win coach that has a win-at-all-costs approach. While a football coach isn't necessarily a life coach these are still kids and while the vast majority won't make a living playing football, even those that do will still need some basic structure to succeed in life.

    It's not quite over but it's been a fun (and yes, contentious) recruiting season, it's all good, nothing wrong with a good scrap now and then.

    This upcoming season looks like a good one, should be fun, I actually think this may be the Huskies best season of the three. I wish all you guy's teams (even J's, lol) luck and that you have an injury-free season.

    I hope that's not too optimistic but in either case IT'S GREAT TO BE A HUSKY!!!

    Nice post, and good luck to the Huskies. I like Peterson quite a bit, I also like Helton. They seem to be of the same mold. Helton's "pitch" to players and their families is "Faith, Family and Football" He seems to be an even and honorable person, never over the top, really more fitting of a mid west school as opposed to SC, but it seems to be working for him. Hopefully SC will continue to do well, regardless I'll always be a fan.

    Uw also has Jeremiah Martin visiting this weekend. He’s a pass rushing specialist that I really like. He was kind of a late bloomer so hasn’t got a ton of attention until recently. He had something insane like 30 sacks this season (I can’t remember the exact number but it was in that range.) Hes going to be choosing between Texas A&M, usc, Washington and Oregon.

    Yep, whichever school you root for you’re only going to get between 18-28 and miss out on 500 others, so you might as well celebrate the ones you get and not stress out about the ones you don’t.

    There's no buzz or even talk about him on any SC sites. That Cardinal & Gold hat will likely be on the table for window dressing.

    I found the stats: 30.5 sacks, 47 tackles for loss, 89 total tackles as a defensive end. Senior season highlights:

    This would make 21 commits, I have heard that we might take another depending on who's available but Petersen likes to recruit 17-20 recruits each year to keep his classes balanced.

    Uw also has Jeremiah Martin visiting this weekend. He’s a pass rushing specialist that I really like. He was kind of a late bloomer so hasn’t got a ton of attention until recently. He had something insane like 30 sacks this season (I can’t remember the exact number but it was in that range.) Hes going to be choosing between Texas A&M, usc, Washington and Oregon.

    There's no buzz or even talk about him on any SC sites. That Cardinal & Gold hat will likely be on the table for window dressing.


    He is most likely headed to A&M I believe with UW having a chance. USC is probably in better position than Oregon for him, but very slim for either.

  • I just read Oregon has put out 271 offers as of today in this recruiting cycle. That’s pathetic and speaks volumes about how poor the coaching staff is. They are not taking the time to be sure the guys they offer are a good fit for the program. Just for comparison UW has made just over 80 offers I believe and have more kids signed than Oregon. Very good chance next year OU will be on its 4th head coach in as many years.

    Alabama has 277 offers out. I suppose Saban sucks and is about to get fired too huh?

    https://247sports.com/college/alabama/S ... all/Offers

    Georgia has offered 295. Their coaching staff must REALLY suck!

    https://scout.com/college/georgia/Seaso ... all/Offers

    You know, you can pump up your Huskies without dissing the Ducks with every post. Especially when its completely silly. Not all offers are the same. A vast majority of those offers are backup options and non-commitable.

  • If this thread is about the "kids" then keep it about them and where they go.

    You want to start on thread on actual recruiting tactics, or how these schools use the kid athletes to make millions of dollars then start that thread and keep the discussion there.

    Off topic posts will be removed with warnings from here out.

    Just my opinion.

    There were I think 9 4 stars in Oregon this year, huganga (usc), Lenzy (Notre Dame) and Cota (UCLA) were the only ones I liked. The majority of Oregon high school players are overrated because they play crap competition, in my opinion. Including the ones signing with Oregon.



    This was an absolute freak show of a year for football players from Oregon. 5 to 6 of them will be in the NFL in five years.

  • Word is Devon Williams is taking a surprise "unofficial" visit to SC tonight. If he wasn't going, he would have just made a phone call. I'm betting he was USC, tripped to Oregon last week and they made a good impression, but his heart is at SC and he wants to confirm his choice.

    I'm guessing there is going to be some surprises come Edit: Wednesday, (for some reason I have the 5th stuck in my mind) anyone who has unsigned recruits can't be completely comfortable. Should be interesting.

    I'm guessing there is going to be some surprises come Monday, anyone who has unsigned recruits can't be completely comfortable. Should be interesting.

    Signing day is Wednesday. I doubt there will be any commitments before then. Look for "surprise visits and late offers" as a sign that someone is making a late or change in decision. Generally speaking the coaches know where the kids are going, but if there's a late change there's usually a late scramble.

  • So the whole thing started because of a snap chat with the location at a hotel right near USC. I guess We'll all find out together on Wednesday.

    On one hand, i'd be surprised if he chooses USC because he's been a strong Oregon lean for the last 9 months. Plus he has some childhood friends (Nick Pickett, Thomas Graham and Deommodore Lenoir) on the Ducks.

    On the other hand, I wouldnt be surprised if he ends up at USC because A. He's a So Cal kid. B. It's USC. We Duck fans have seen this story before, as recently as last year when Josh Falo was a long time Oregon lean and then USC swooped in at the end.

  • USC’s class is rated at #12 right now I believe. That will change next week. Would not be surprised at all if they finish in the top 5.

    For sure, if they dont it will only because they arent taking a huge class. They'll definitely be top 5 in average recruit ranking though.

    The hang up will be quantity. As it stands now, 18, could be as many as 20, as there are rumors of transfers/medical retirements. If they close out as expected their average star rating will be redonckulous. In fact right now their average star rating puts them at #1 or #2 nationally.

  • He hasnt publicly commited yet but it sounds like the kid from Seattle, Tre'shaun Harrison, is going to follow Willie Taggart to Florida State. Kid is a total stud. One of my favorite players in this whole class.

    The table is set for UW next season. With all the guys returning we are in win now mode, and hope it takes some time for USC to break in a new QB. Because you guys are going to be very hard to beat going forward. I think even for USC standards recruiting is better than usual. And there is coaching staff in place to use that talent.

    Peterson with the ability to recruit at a school like UW is formidable. I think for years to come the PAC will be between SC & UW with another program rotating in to challenge from year to year. The O-line gelling will be the key to SC's offense, any of the 3 QB's will be fine.

    UW is returning a lot of players and that is why they have been picked to win the Pac-12 this year. I think the whole thing is going to boil down to receiver play. We need at least one of those tall 4-star WR recruits to come in and make an immediate impact.

    UW had a reputation at one time as a TE factory, look for more targets to this position this year.

  • If I were a Husky fan I think the thing I would be worried about most is d'line depth. Especially on the inside. 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.
