Oregon safety recruiting update
July, 22, 2012
By Brandon P. Oliver | ESPN Insider
Nick Ruland for ESPN.comOregon made Priest Willis' top 16 recently and if the Ducks were able to secure his commitment, that'd be a big coup for the Oregon staff.When USC wants a recruit from Southern California, it usually gets that recruit. When Oregon swooped in and flipped long time Trojans commit De'Anthony Thomas on national signing day in 2011, it was the exception and not the rule. After a long relationship with the Trojans staff, safety Max Redfield (Mission Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) made it official last week when he committed to USC.
Redfield had long been a top target of the Oregon staff, but it was just a matter of time until he made the call for the local favorite. The Ducks already have athlete Chris Seisay locked up and it looks like he will wind up at safety, filling one of the safety spots. With Redfield off the board, the Ducks have a few options in place and will be watching others closely as the season wears on.
The Ducks will likely take one more safety unless plans for Seisay go another direction. If two or three out of Tahaan Goodman, Priest Willis, Tyrell Robinson and Antonio Conner want to commit, the Ducks would likely make room because of the versatility of each of them.
