Never A Doubt for Voeller

The West Linn (Ore.) offensive tackle and Oregon commit, Evan Voeller, has never had doubts about the Ducks and he's rock solid to the in-state powerhouse...

West Linn (Ore.) offensive lineman Evan Voeller has been free from the stress of recruiting for months, committing to Oregon in the spring.

The only real obstacle was seeing what Ducks head coach Chip Kelly would do.

With Kelly returning to Oregon, Voeller is thrilled to play for him, but insisted that no matter what Kelly did, Voeller would have ended up in green and gold.

"I'm 100% to Oregon no matter what, I chose the school not based on the coaches, but based on the school," said Voeller. "Coach Kelly is a great coach, but I was going to Oregon no matter who was the coach."

Steve Greatwood, the Ducks' offensive line coach, is Voeller's primary recruiter, and the two have a strong relationship.

"I talk to him a lot on the phone and it's a real good relationship," said Voeller. "Before I got to the UnderArmour Game, we talked and he just said to compete and do the best I can."

Voeller enjoyed the opportunity to play in the UnderArmour Game, the lone player selected from Oregon to the game.

"It's been a great experience, and an honor, to be able to see where I'm at, and get some practice for the next level.," said Voeller. "It's definitely really cool and it's also a big responsibility to take it serious."

Voeller and future Oregon teammate Dontre Wilson also built a good relationship.

"I talked with Dontre a lot and he's a nice guy," said Voeller.

Voeller has already officially visited Oregon, but may return in January for an unofficial visit, especially if Oregon brings in a number of recruits on any one weekend.

"Me and Doug (Brenner) took our official visits together and it was really cool and we may go back one of those weekends," said Voeller.

Brandon is in his eighth year with, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the network since 2003.
