Good morning -- here's your daily quack fix.
- In football recruiting news, Adam Hall (ATH) still has Oregon among his three finalists, along with Cal and Arizona. Looks like he still has home visits from all three schools planned for this week. Scout.com lists Hall as a WR/S, so I am not sure if Oregon is recruiting him on offense or defense.
- In other news, Tajh Boyd is set to make his announcement this afternoon. A South Carolina site has a few quotes from Boyd's father that indicate he'd be surprised if Boyd ended up somewhere other than Clemson. Later in the night, Boyd's mother claimed that Tajh had still not made up his mind. Clemson was the only school to meet with Tajh yesterday, so they were able to make the last impression.
- Moseley blogs that WR Elvis Krout is no longer enrolled at Oregon and has left the football team. Krout did not participate much this last season after he was hampered by an injury suffered in the summer. Still, losing players at a position that was already suffering from some depth questions can't help.
- In another blog entry, Moseley notes that C.E. Kaiser underwent ankle surgery and will be limited in spring drills. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.
- Here is Moseley's article on the Frost hiring. It includes the note that the both the interviewing and hiring was conducted by Bellotti rather than Kelly. Frost also mentions that he "doesn't know Chip real well," which seems interesting given that Pflugrad and the other coaches were told that Kelly felt close to some potential replacements at those positions as reasoning that their services were no longer needed at Oregon. Of course, there is a note at the end of the article that states that Pflugrad may stick around at another position on the Oregon staff. The article further notes that there is an "agreement in principle" with a new Defensive Line Coach, but it won't be made official until after signing day.
- And, in closing the Myles Wade saga, the Portland Tribune reports that he has now committed to Texas Tech. It includes some thoughts by Wade's father regarding what happened with his recruitment by Oregon along with speculation that Aliotti may not have been as high on Wade.
As always, feel free to post any other links that come up during the day.
