Here is to hoping that Lubrick lives up to his billing, because I totally agree it is less about coaches who can coach now but more coaches who can get kids to come onto campus. For every kid that is logical about his decision and thinks it out, there are ten that use only emotion in their decision. But they are all 17 and I know I was stupid, so it is more shocking to see guys that are logical than not. Thankfully we have a great class full of them, and maybe a couple others who came based on emotion, who knows. As long as they are Ducks I am glad they are here.

Source close to UO football program tells me that twins Tyree and Tyrell Robinson will remain committed to Oregon.
Kate Upton would be a kick ass recruiter.
I think based on the info that's out there it's safe to say the coaching staff has been told they are staying.
Agreed - the really only worry is tosh blowing them up on the phone all night
The vibe on twitter from them is that the decision is made -
Don't undersell the coaching. We've been averaging recruiting classes in the 15-20 range and we're finishing inside the top 5. By all accounts it was coaching that made the difference. Both Kelly and the most experienced and continual staff in the country. Not a coincidence. (Now the possibility of having both with the coaching staff is exciting).
So I know Tyrell is OLB all the way. Has it ever been determined if they're going to start Tyree at safety or wide receiver?
Not really, but we expect him to get his start at DB. Won't really know for sure until he gets on campus.
Quick question - if a kid red shirts his freshman year in football, can he go ahead and workout and play basketball from the start of the season or do they have to wait until January too?
Enjoy Life, it has an expiration date.
I'm not blaming the Robinsons. Changing of the recruiting culture....really? All I'm sayin is we've secured plenty of recruits after Chipper left who've stayed true to the SCHOOL. I will never believe a commit goes to a school SOLELY whether or not a head coach stays or goes. And with the Ducks, I think we've proven its not about the head coach, it's about a heck of a lot more than that. A head coach who leaves is just a way out for some recruits. Oh and also, so our head coach leaves for the NFL, and you DONT want to come to that university whos coach recruited you and could potentially draft you to the NFL??? Hey, no big deal, gimme hungry 3 stars into U of O and we'll be fine. We haven't made BCS bowls for 4 years in a Row on 4 and 5 stars anyway.
I'd guess safety, because we are deep at wideout; however, we have pretty good depth at safety too.
Check out this video of Tyree. I know it's just one play, but...
The future is looking Rosy
Actually we have had quite a few 4-5 star guys...but also some very good 3 stars. But it isn't like we've gone to 4 BCS bowls on 3 star talent...this isn't 2001.
Sorry if this came off as coach bashing. This was purely a getting the recruit on campus statement. I think we have one of, if not the best coaching staff in the country for building kids up. But playing the Tosh/Urban/Kiffin game we were lacking. If we can combine the two then good luck to everyone else in the country.
That's not exactly true. Go back and look at the last few classes, mostly four stars and high three stars.
Well.. Just wondering if ether of the twins red shirts could he play a full year of freshman basketball?
You got a phone number? Might as well give it a shot.
P.s. Honeybadger was thrown in for no reason, just did not realize it was an option lol
Thanks for sharing
Can't wait to see these brothers flying around Oregon's D, laying wood on people!
This class is more of the same.
I'm going to hold back my excitement until they've signed on the dotted line. If I remember correctly there was a thread that basically said Wilson was Oregon bound, but 24 hours later he was a Buckeye. Hard to get excited about this stuff anymore. OT, but I really, really hope we sign Hunt tomorrow.
For one he's a beast and we need talent and depth at OL and secondly Hunt is boys, he may even be teammates with one of my top wants at WR in 2014. Kids name is Barry Ware. 6'3", 185 lbs, and a very skilled player. 247 has him as a 4* top 100 player and a top 10 overall WR. He and Micah Quick are the top two WR's on my '14 big board. Hunt could help us out with him next year. Looking forward to next year.
Wrong Tyree Robinson, unfortunately. This Tyree Robinson is playing for Western Kentucky...
I don't think so. I would imagine Helf would want them around for practices.
I believe if you are on a football scholarship, redshirt or not you don't play/practice other sports until season is over. How many "potential" redshirts had to be forced into action due to injuries? Hard to be in "football" shape if you haven't been on the football field.
Well, I'll be...
Hear Trash, I mean Tosh wasn't all that effective, but that Romar was pretty compelling ... Also hearing that there really wasn't as much of 'waver' as has been rumored, and that Tyree was not tempted, in the slightess ...
