Very interesting Joe and Heard have favorited a couple tweets on Twitter about flipping Arrion Springs. Tells me two things 1) Heard and Joe aren't going anywhere and 2) They are going to try and get Springs on board. If you follow Heard and Joe on Twitter they aren't very responsive on Twitter (I actually think that's a good thing). For them to be favoriting Tweets about flipping Springs is very interesting.

Oregon 247 boards think his mom is coming with him, and I think that's important. Springs is a SA kid, do you think his mom wants him playing close to home or a 1,000 miles away? Strong needs to work on the mom just as much as Arrion.

 

The other thing about Springs is he's already used up his 5 official visits, so he's visiting on his own dime. You can't tell me he's not at least a little bit interested in Texas if his family is spending their own money.

What is the news for John Bonney tonight?

 

Here is a local TV news feature from last night (Fri) on Bonney

 

Sounds pretty good from this

 

He also has something interesting to say about who encouraged him to start taking other visits and when that encouragement occurred.

 

Here is the link also as I cannot tell if the embed is working http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/video?id=9415423

It's actually 2000 mi. CS should be recruiting his Mom hard with the idea that she'll be able to easily attend 8-9 games per year compared to maybe 1 at UO.

If you think Bonney is thin you should see Alaka, and Alaka plays LB. Sometimes 17 and 18 year olds aren't physically ready for the next level until a couple years. That's why I'm interested to see if Alaka plays next year (that apparently was the selling card that got him to College Station). If Alaka plays next year he's going to be eaten alive, because he needs to add at least 30 or 40 pounds IMO.

Similar to Peter Jinkens, if I recall he was faster than Jonathan Gray, but about 195 lbs as a Sr. He could have used a redshirt since he is just now putting on mass.

With 6 Texans already on the Ducks roster, I'm sure they would charter a plane to get this kid's family up there.

any chance we're still talking to olaka? I mean, once the realization that you've opted to go live in college station sets in you wonder if the kid is still in play up to signing day.

what about harvey, i know he's a long shot but is that one totally over?

LSU academics? Losing Tristan would be devastating

 

Maybe its the extensive online catalog?
