Official visits often leave prospects feeling warm and fuzzy all over for a good 24 hours after they have been completed, and then the decompression period takes effect and it’s onto the next visit.
JuJu Smith (Long Beach, Calif./Polytechnic) without question feels good about Oregon, but with all West Coast prospects I am waiting to see what happens with USC and their hire.
I wouldn’t read too much into how any prospect reacts from one visit, as down the stretch there is going to be so much that happens, including in-home head coach visits that can go a long, long way in January.
As for Smith, he is a difference-maker in our opinion, not too different from Marqise Lee when he came out as a player, who could be a viable commodity on both sides of the ball and where his heart is when it comes to what position he wants to play could have a major impact on where he signs. We believe a lean toward safety gives him the biggest upside at the next level.
