Oregon commits plan Ohio State official
By Brad Bournival
At least two Oregon commits are planning an official visit to Ohio State.
With the absence of former Ducks coach Chip Kelly, whose departure for the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles was announced Wednesday, some commits are taking a look.
For ESPN 300 wide receiver Tyree Robinson and athlete Tyrell Robinson (San Diego/Lincoln) an official visit to the Buckeyes could come as soon as Jan. 25.
“I just want to make sure I’m making the best decision for my family,” Tyree said. “But as of now I’m still committed. I plan on visiting next week.”
The twins are likely a package deal, and the Buckeyes have shown tremendous interest in both, offering the pair Wednesday.
The brothers have offers from Arizona, Arizona State, California, Colorado, Georgia, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, Stanford, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Tyree, who is 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, is a four-star wide receiver ranked No. 42 at his position and 272nd overall.
Tyrell, who is 6-3 and 210 pounds, is a four-star athlete most suited for the linebacker position, but he can play wideout as well.
“I just wanted to check out other places besides Oregon,” Tyree said. “Ohio State is a top program and it’s a blessing to get an offer.”
