Chris McCain, a 4* Linebacker originally out of Northern Guilford High School in Greensboro, North Carolina, has committed to Oregon! McCain announced on ESPNU this afternoon. McCain is part of a group of students from the high school that visited Oregon earlier this year. Oregon is reportedly still in the running for teamates Keenan Allen and James Scales.
Chris is 6-6 and 210 pounds, and will likely play outside linebacker, though he could also play DE, much like Kenny Rowe. He will likely add some size, and will fit right into what is quickly becoming an extremely versatile defense. Due to a recent school transfer from Northern Guilford, he will not graduate until the end of 2010, so he could end up a 2011 recruit. Welcome to the family Chris!
