Ducks WR commit receiving interest
By Brandon P. Oliver
Chip Kelly's rule of recruits not being able to visit other programs after committing to the Ducks was an issue for certain recruits and their families. That was always the case for Ducks commit Darren Carrington Jr. (San Diego/Horizon), who has expressed interest in taking official visits to other programs in recent months.
With Kelly out of the picture, the four-star wide receiver is doing just that by visiting Arizona, and other programs have also been in touch.
However, Carrington remains committed to the Ducks and has no other visits planned as of now.
"Yes, Darren is in Arizona right now," said Darren's father, Darren Sr. "No other trips have been planned, but he has received interest from Ohio State, Texas Tech and ASU."
While his son wants to check out other programs, Carrington Sr. confirmed his son loves the Ducks, remains committed and believes they will be hard to beat in the end.
"He is still committed to the Ducks," Carrington Sr. said. "The cool thing is that he has seen what I believe is one of the best programs in the country. So anywhere else he visits is going to have to reach that level for a chance at him."
