With tomorrow marking the first day that prep players can sign letters-of-intent, much of the quack is related to recruiting.Here's hoping we get a few pleasant surprises tomorrow.
- Rob Moseley goes over the unexpected visit by De'Anthony Thomas this past weekend and lists some of the impressive accolades that Thomas has received.
- Matt Prehm notes that Oregon has made a habit of finishing strong in the recruiting process. It's looking like there's a good chance that Oregon will continue that trend this year.
- With Oregon looking to sign a class full of big-name players, Lindsay Schnell considers how Oregon will attempt to keep everyone happy. The blog entry focuses on Tra Carson, who will sign with Oregon tomorrow despite an already loaded depth chart at running back.
- Bob Rickert has a list of the last few undecided recruits who are considering Oregon and when they will announce tomorrow. For what it's worth, Rickert is (optimistically) predicting Fisher, Heywood and Thomas all signing with Oregon.
- In his weekly look around the conference, Bob Clark focuses on the recent controversy caused by USC's Nikola Vucevic when he compared the play of his team to women. And, in his weekly rankings, the Ducks move up to #7.
- Ron Bellamy has an update on how former Duck basketball players are faring in the professional careers, primarily focusing on Ivan Johnson, Luke Jackson and Tajuan Porter. And, there's also a Flo Hartenstein sighting!
- And, just for TennesseeQuackAttack, here's a little baseball quack: the Ducks are ranked #12 in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association's preseason top 35 poll. The Oregon baseball season will kick off the 2011 season on February 18 in Hawaii.
- In Track and Field news, Vin Lananna denied reports that he is a finalist for the USA Track & Field CEO position. While it may be a good move for the sport on a national level, it'd be a shame to see Lananna leave Eugene considering all he has accomplished in his six years here.
