Ducks offer Badgers commit Alec James

By Jared Shanker

Four-star defensive end Alec James (Brookfield, Wis./Brookfield East) remains committed to Wisconsin, but he has one more team to consider as he begins planning out official visits.

James said over the weekend Oregon visited his school last week to learn more about him. The Ducks offered Tuesday, James said.

The Ducks must feel confident with James as Oregon coach Chip Kelly does not like to offer committed prospects or allow them to take official visits to Oregon. James said he plans to officially visit Oregon in January but does not know when specifically.

The No. 1 player in Wisconsin, James committed to Wisconsin in April, but the coaching changes have caused James to reconsider his commitment. He plans to visit Clemson and Michigan State and now Oregon. Florida State is also in the mix.

Sources told ESPN college football reporter Brett McMurphy on Tuesday that Utah State coach Gary Andersen will be named the Badgers' next coach.
