It’s a brand new month, and the Ducks kick it off right with nabbing another commitment for the class of 2013. Alex Redmond, a 3-star recruit from Los Alamitos, California, is the eighth to commit to the team overall, and sixth in the last month.
247Sports’ Greg Biggins broke the news on his Twitter account earlier today. It was finally a decision between Oregon and Washington, and Redmond picked the Ducks because of “the whole package.”
“Every time I thought about where I wanted to go [I] wrote down all my favorite things about each school,” Redmond said in an interview with Scout. “It kept coming back to Oregon.”
Redmond is scheduled to be at The Opening camp at Beaverton, Oregon, this weekend. It’s assumed that to avoid more questions about commitment, the recruit decided to end the debate between the Ducks and the Huskies.
The 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive guard is preparing for his senior year with the Los Alamitos Griffins. Next season, he will join Evan Voeller on the Oregon offensive line.
Redmond is a three-star recruit across the board with the recruiting services. Scout has him at a much higher ranking at position at 15th compared to 247Sports and ESPN, who have him at 37th and 45th, respectively.
The offensive guard passed up offers from the aforementioned Huskies, Arizona State, Colorado, Washington State, Boston College, and San Diego State.
