Quack Fix: Future QB impressive in camp, Altman prepares for important recruiting period

Even though we're closing in on the start of football, it looks like we're still lacking in the quack. At least we've got a Tako Tuesday and some good fandom stories to get us through.

  • The Steve Clarkson Maui Super 7 QB camp is going on now, and two Oregon prospects are making waves. Current Oregon soft commit Jerrard Randall was described as possibly having "the strongest arm of any of the quarterbacks we have seen in person, on tape or both for the 2011 class." He can make very hard throws and is a terrific athlete, but he'll need to learn to back off a bit and hit some of the more finesse throws required in Oregon's offense. Oregon recruit Brett Hundley was also in attendance, and drew strong praise as well. At this point, it's assumed that Oregon will take one more QB, and it will likely be Randall or Hundley. Either QB would be a huge pick-up for  the Ducks.
  • While Dave chose to take an optimistic approach to the current basketball roster, it doesn't sound like Coach Altman shares that view as the summer recruiting period begins and build his roster for the future. With only two scholarship players that are freshman or sophomore (though one more freshman may be added before the season), Altman and his staff have a lot of work to do in order to get the team ready for the 2012-2013 season. 
  • In a bit of Pac-10 and Oregon future opponent news, USC backup DE Malik Jackson will be be transferring to Tennessee. Jackson is listed as a DE, but is also listed at 270 pounds, and could very likely get pressed into playing at DT, where the Vols lack experience and depth.
