Oregon recruiting: Quick hitters

Radi Nabulsi/ESPN.comNorcross, Ga., running back Alvin Kamara has recently put the Ducks in his top 3 and is trying to get to Eugene this weekend for an official visit.After a long, slow period on the recruiting front, things are heating up for the No. 2 Oregon Ducks. While most of the news is tentative, there is some recent confirmed news. With No. 52 overall (No. 5 ATH) Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto) -- a future Ducks running back -- and No. 90 overall (No. 11 RB) Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha) already in the mix, the Ducks are working to add even more weapons to their future backfield.
One of the nation's premier running backs -- Derrick Green (Richmond, Va./Hermitage), No. 41 overall (No. 5 RB) -- was scheduled make his official visit to Eugene this weekend, but has postponed his visit due to a scheduling conflict. Green recently cut Virgina Tech from his list of favorites, which is now made up of Michigan, Auburn, Tennessee, Oregon and Miami (Fla). Green is a bruising runner that is more LaGarrette Blount than LaMichael James. The Ducks would love to add a bigger back to this class, and Green is their top option in that regard.
Like Green, Notre Dame commit Danny Mattingly (Spokane, Wash./Mead) postponed his official visit to Eugen due to a conflict with Mead's playoff schedule. Again, like Green, Mattingly maintains that he will visit Oregon, but will do so after his season has been completed.
