We simply preserve churning our approach by way of the summer season right here at Geese Digest. It seems like simply yesterday I used to be within the Artwork Litchman pressbox at Autzen writing NFL Draft tales whereas watching the spring soccer recreation, however right here we’re.
Recruiting is in full swing and fall camp is correct across the nook.
I did not know the place to place this, however I needed to say this.
Thanks to everybody who’s been studying us and trying out our stuff. The location has been rising and it is nice to see all of the work repay. I am engaged on some behind-the-scenes strikes which might be going to take our content material to the following degree.
With that out of the way in which, let’s get to what you got here right here for, the Geese.
We noticed two new soccer recruits pledge to Oregon for 2022 and acquired tons of updates on different precedence recruits. Mario Cristobal seems to be like he is likely to be closing in on a pair of massive teaching hires and we noticed a number of Geese chosen within the 2021 MLB Draft.
Let’s have a look again on the week that was in Oregon’s sports activities.
Iuli dedicated to Oregon Saturday, choosing the Geese over USC in one other Pac-12 recruiting battle. He offers Mario Cristobal and Alex Mirabal versatility in a glass that’s loaded with offensive tackles.
He says he desires to start out as a freshman and plans on being one other Penei Sewell for the Geese.
What’s that you just say? Oregon went 2/2 over USC?
Sategna visited Oregon final month as a Texas A&M commit, however fell in love with the Geese and determined to open up his recruitment. Shortly thereafter he took a shock go to to USC and shortly narrowed his selections to the Geese and the Trojans.
A wealth of alternatives, chief amongst them the possibility to get developed by Bryan McClendon helped seal the deal.
We had this recruitment coated from the soar, with tales on his official visits, his dedication, and a Geese Digest unique video interview.
Williams offers Oregon one other huge physique alongside the offensive line, but additionally an inroad into probably the most gifted highschool applications within the country–something to watch because the Geese pulled the set off and provided Williams’ teammate Omari Abor. It is fairly late for Oregon to become involved, however that hasn’t stopped the Geese previously.
Williams detailed how Oregon received out over huge names like Texas and Oklahoma.
The Geese continued their push into Southern California with the dedication of Wooten. He might not have an intensive provide sheet however throw on his movie and it is almost not possible to not see the upside.
Oregon is shortly filling up at extensive receiver this summer season following the commitments of Nicholas Anderson and Isaiah Sategna, however the Geese aren’t carried out. One of many greatest targets left on the board is McMillan, who was named MVP of The Opening, a nationwide recruiting occasion comprised of one of the best highschool expertise on the market.
I traveled to Los Angeles to cowl the occasion and caught up with him to speak about his recruitment, which is all the way down to Oregon, USC and Arizona. Spoiler: he REALLY likes the Geese.
Berry is one other goal I noticed in motion in Los Angeles and man, this child can flat out play. Line him up at receiver or defensive again and he will make an influence. He was snagging interceptions and reeling in tipped passes for touchdowns as a receiver.
Regardless of a busy June taking journeys to a number of Pac-12 faculties, he hasn’t been on campus in Eugene but, however that’s set to vary, and the Geese have a while to show up the warmth, as he isn’t set to announce his dedication till after his senior 12 months.
One of many prospects I would wager might be subsequent in line to decide to Oregon, Snelling was on campus in June and in addition checked out Arizona. Our Dylan Reubenking spoke with him to see what’s modified within the time since his go to and if he is nonetheless feeling the love from Oregon.
Similar to we noticed with Sategna and Iuli, the Geese might be within the midst of one other battle in opposition to USC for a prime cornerback from Southern California. A lengthier DB prospect, Prysock has taken visits to Ohio State and USC this summer season however tells me he plans on taking certainly one of his remaining official visits to Oregon.
Dickey is among the most gifted extensive receivers on the West Coast in 2023. This was a suggestion I would been ready for Oregon to make for a bit, particularly since he attends the identical faculty (Valley Christian) the place Oregon discovered do-it-all extensive receiver Byron Marshall. I feel this provide is a recreation changer for Dickey and it is good the Geese acquired in earlier as a result of he is solely going to see larger faculties come calling.
Fresno State Previews
The season-opener is lower than two months away, however feels proper on the doorstep with fall camp set to start early subsequent month. Fresno State is not an opponent the Geese ought to take calmly, returning a robust go rush and a few underrated offensive weapons.
New coaching hires? (Both unconfirmed by Oregon)
Reports surfaced this week that Oregon has hired the former UCF special teams coordinator. He’s worked with DeRuyter before at multiple stops and could be just what the doctor ordered to coach up the Ducks’ youth at outside linebacker.
*FWIW: Toth has changed his Twitter profile to reflect the move to Eugene*
This rent actually caught peoples’ consideration attributable to Brumbaugh’s heavy ties to the SEC each as a coach and a participant. If this rent is legit, Cristobal could have introduced in one other high-level assistant with nationwide championship pedigree that may influence his program in quite a lot of methods.
The Debut of the Geese Digest Podcast
This is not actually a narrative however I am very excited to interrupt by way of into the Podcasting scene. We have already got three episodes and are totally on Spotify, however plan to interrupt by way of into different podcasting platforms. Our newest pod takes a deep dive into Dave Iuli’s dedication and breaks down his recreation.
The Geese carried their momentum over from the 2021 season and noticed 4 gamers take their recreation to the very best degree. Oregon slugger Kenyon Yovan additionally signed with the Angels.
