With spring practice under way for a number of Pac-12 programs, position battles are underway, newcomers are looking to make their mark and some teams will work on keeping everything the exact same. For Oregon, they want to keep everything as is, but they do have a little situation known as a brand-new head coach.
On the field, not much is expected to change with a team loaded with returners on both sides of the ball. Off the field, the Ducks have already changed some things in terms of their approach to recruiting. There are still plenty of questions regarding West Coast prospects and why some have been offered and others have not.
There was a mailbag full of great questions this week, so we decided on a couple of key topics and this is what we came up with. Feel free to read through these while you skip work to watch the Ducks take on No. 1 Louisville in the Sweet 16. As always, submit your questions for next week's mailbag via twitter @BoliverESPN or @ESPNDuckNation.
Clark O. (Clackamas, Ore.): Are there any in-state kids that might be able to throw their name in the hat for an Oregon offer by attending, and shining, at Oregon's camp in June? Who are some of the top in-state kids in this class. I know about the Jesuit kids (Alfieri, Mondeaux) and Connor Humphreys from Central Catholic, but who are the other top kids from the [Portland] metro area? What about the rest of the state?
