Actually 3 questions:
1. Would we still take him after landing Hunt late?
2. Is there a time line on when the NCAA will be making a decision?
3. Any guesses on whether the NCAA will indeed restore his eligibility or not?
It really wouldn't shock me if Oregon took Purcell if he was ruled eligible to play. I know they brought in 5 OL, but their numbers depth wise still aren't great heading in to next season. Not sure on your other two questions, but these things usually take some time to process out. I wouldn't hold your breath on him.
Gotta love the NCAA and their obvious concern for prospective students and their member institutions. They are going to drag their feet like they always do and they don't care if that is to the detriment of Purcell or the UO.
I think they would definitely take NP if he is elligible. He is physically ready to rock and could make an instant impact ie Kyle Long. Not saying he'd be as good as Long, but he has the potential and the physical traits to play right away. I personally hope we get him. He'd be a good fit for guard and we need experienced depth at guard.
Yeah he would be a sick late edition. Six ol would be legit
My thoughts exactly. There is need and immediate opportunity for a player like Purcell who can contribute right away at guard.
Do teams want a 6'8" guy at guard though? QB's wouldn't be able to see around them.
Long finished at left guard and he is 6-7.
Any idea how many years he'll have if he gains eligibility, or is that up to the NCAA as well?
The future is looking Rosy
That will all hinge on the NCAA's ruling.
Is he 6'8"? I thought he was like 6'3" or something. If he's 6'8" then maybe he's best projected at tackle.
Doubt he gets more than a year. But yes that's the NCAA's decision.

I don't know what the appeal would be but if they rule his clock should not have started with his intermural league in Austrailia he'd have quite a bit of eligibility left. It was only 1 year playing JC if I remember right. Seems to me like it would be more of an all or nothing. Then again with the keystone cops you never know.
6'6" 300lb upon closer examination. Thought I saw 6'8" somewhere.
Not an ideal height, but Long played OG at close to 6'7". You also have to wonder if he's really 6'8". I'm sorry, but that pic has got to go. I know I'm not the only one on here who looks at that pic and thinks," Sure looks like a serial killer to me" ?

We need to stick with the process and bring him in, even if it's only for a year. The O Line depth is ridiculously thin. 3 of the freshmen are just not physically ready to play yet.
