Oregon Ducks Football: Derrick Green and Leon McQuay on official visits


Derrick Green and Leon McQuay III are two of the top recruits left in the 2013 class still taking a look at the Oregon Ducks, and both of them are on official visits to other schools on their lists. Top 50 recruit Derrick Green is on an official trip to the Auburn Tigers, while McQuay is officially visiting the Michigan Wolverines.

Green is regarded as one of the best five running back recruits in the 2013 class, and he is currently weighing in offers from Ole Miss, Tennessee, Oregon, Virginia Tech, and Michigan. He has already taken official visits to Tennessee and Michigan, and he has an official trip to Eugene lined up next week. A week after the trip to Oregon, the Hermitage High standout has an official visit to Ole Miss scheduled.

The owner of a 4.4 forty time, Derrick Green is regarded by some as the best prospect in Virginia. The 6’0″, 220 pound back has an excellent blend of size and speed and also has a 32-inch vertical. A participant at “The Opening”, Green rushed for 1,493 yards and 20 touchdowns last season, and he is also well-regarded for his pass-catching ability.

Leon McQuay III comes from a great football pedigree, as his father and grandfather have both played at the collegiate level. McQuay is coming off of an official visit to Oregon last week and still has official trips lined up to Florida State and USC after his visit to Michigan. He is one of the top ten recruits in the state of Florida and is generally regarded as the third or fourth best safety prospect in the 2013 class.

The Armwood High star is weighing in offers from Oregon, Michigan, Vanderbilt, Florida State, and USC. The Trojans have a high chance of landing him after his official trip in December, and Vandy, Oregon, and Michigan are also major players in his recruitment. The official trip to Eugene was certainly a big one for the Ducks, and it is pretty wide open among those five teams. The decision from Max Redfield to decommit from USC has ramifications for McQuay, because it gives USC the chance at landing him if Redfield does not recommit.
