Oregon recruiting: Safeties to watch
February, 27, 2013
By Brandon P. Oliver | ESPN Insider
With the impending departure of both of their starting safeties following the 2013 season, the Oregon Ducks will be looking to add at least a couple of standouts to the back end of their defense in the Class of 2014.
The Ducks have plenty of young talent at the position and will likely return the emerging Erick Dargan in 2013. The young and talented group, consisting of redshirt freshmen Reggie Daniels, Oshay Dunmore and Eric Amoako, is unproven on the field. The Ducks also didn't sign any true safeties in the Class of 2013. Incoming freshmen Tyree Robinson and Chris Seisay are both versatile athletes with good size that have unlimited potential as defensive backs. Like the group of redshirt freshmen ahead of them, Robinson and Seisay have a lot to prove before stepping in and maintaining the level of play the Ducks have enjoyed with T.J. Ward, Patrick Chung, John Boyett, Brian Jackson and Avery Patterson manning the deep third over the past few seasons.
Here is a look at some of the Ducks' top targets at the position in the Class of 2014.
