Dieter To Save An Official Visit For Oregon

After flying under the radar for most of the summer, South Bend (IN) Washington three-star wideout Gehrig Dieter burst on to the scene this high school season in impressive fashion, setting an Indiana high school record for most receiving yards in a game with 383 yards and five touchdowns on only eight catches. With a full season ahead of him, Dieter is poised to draw the eye of many a school.

"I don't really have a timetable, maybe the latest (I would decide) is December, but other than that, I really don't have one."

"Probably pretty high. They've always been a really good team, so I have high interest in them right now."
