Alabama has offered two Southern California offensive-line prospects who are ranked in the ESPN 150, but much to the dismay of Oregon fans and other recruits, neither holds an offer from the Ducks. In the Class of 2013, both Alabama and LSU had offered No. 10 overall prospect Eddie Vanderdoes by the time Oregon -- his longtime favorite -- came through with an offer.
Closer to home, a couple of SEC schools -- as well multiple Pac-12 schools -- have gotten a head start on Oregon on yet another fast-rising 2014 defensive lineman.
