Ducks' recruiting works itself out

Scott Olmos/US PresswireWashington may be winning some recruiting battles, but the Huskies have a long way to go to catch up to the Ducks on the field.The rivalry between Oregon and Washington seems to be slowly fading away as it has become an annual blowout for the Ducks. With their ninth straight win -- all of which have been by 17 points or more -- the Ducks have established their dominance over the Huskies.
The Huskies have come a long way since their 0-12 season in 2008 and their recruiting under the new staff is a big reason for it. With a solid recruiting class in the works so far this year, another blowout loss to Oregon doesn't mean their commits will begin to look elsewhere.
"Another loss [to Oregon] doesn't really have any effect on my recruitment, but nine in a row does make me think a little bit," said John Ross (Long Beach, Calif./Jordan), an athlete looking at both programs. "It comes down to where I fit the best."
