Mix a Top 25 battle versus Arizona State with ESPN's "College GameDay" and official visits from a handful of the best prospects in the West, and what do you get?

A potentially huge weekend for the Oregon Ducks.

Two ESPNU 150 standouts headline the weekend, although the Ducks will need to make up some ground to get in the running for both athletes. Defensive lineman Ellis McCarthy (Monrovia, Calif./Monrovia) will take his first official visit of the year; the Ducks have been heavily recruiting the lineman since the spring.
