Number One Long Snapper in the Country Commits to the Oregon Ducks

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

Tanner Carew is Oregon's sixth commitment in the 2014 class.

The Oregon football team has picked up its sixth commitment in the 2014 class in long snapper Tanner Carew from LaVerne, California.

Carew, who was recruited by Steve Greatwood, picked up the offer from Oregon a couple of days ago and wasted no time in committing to the Ducks. Carew is the number one rated long snapper in the country according to Chris Sailer Kicking, who had this to say about Carew earlier this year:

He is a tremendous athlete, built extremely well and absolutely rips the ball back to the punter. He looks almost blas about the whole process but when the ball comes out...BOOM! He snaps a very tight spiral where the speed is almost fake. Ball picks up speed along the way. Runs like the wind and has a terrific attitude.

Carew fills a position of need on special teams as current long snapper Drew Howell will be a senior this year. Long snappers don't get a lot of fanfare but are an extremely important and underrated part of special teams. At 6'2, 215 lbs he is already about the same size as Howell and will likely put on some weight before taking over at the long snapping position, which will help him with blocking duties. If analyzing long snapping is your cup of tea, you can check out his video from the Chris Sailer camp below.
