Recruiting Update: Wisconsin Offers Stanton, Washington Grabs 8 Commits


A quick look at what’s happening with all the Oregon targets and offers in 2013 football recruiting landscape.

First, four-star quarterback, Johnny Stanton, has now been offered by Wisconsin. Two days ago, Stanton had an unofficial visit with Nebraska (a second visit with the Huskers) and liked what he saw. Recently, Autzen Zoo scouted the recruit.

This is Stanton’s 11th offer. Evan Flood, Wisconsin football and basketball recruiting analyst for 247Sports, believes that the California quarterback “has a top five of Wisconsin, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, and Utah” and “he could also visit Oregon one more time this summer.”

Lastly, Washington had eight recruits commit today. That pushes the Huskies up to 16 recruits, according to 247Sports. Probably the highest-rated recruit across the board was defensive end Daeshon Hall, who we just talked about yesterday.

The four-star recruited just decommited from Texas yesterday, and Oregon was closer to his home in Seattle. Washington is just a bit closer. Longhorns fans may feel slightly cheated in the process, but always remember that a commitment isn’t always a 100 percent guarantee. All schools face it, and you just have to wish the athlete the best.

Wide receiver Demorea Stringfellow and offensive tackle Poasi Moala, both from Moreno Valley, California, are two other recruits that had ties with the Ducks. While never given an offer by Oregon, the players did have an interest in them.
