More schools in the mix?

Former USC Trojan- Eugene Germany tripped to Kansas State last weekend and left uncommitted. Currently weighing his present options, Germany discusses where he is at in terms of recruiting as signing day approaches

Eugene Germany is a 6-4, 265-pound defensive end from Pomona, California, and the former USC signee has re-opened the recruiting process after deciding to take his game away from Los Angeles.

"I took a trip this past weekend to K-State," Germany told Tuesday. "It went good, I liked it and everything. I liked the atmosphere and the players treated me cool. The academic program was cool, they went through everything for me."

Some more schools have come into the mix. "I haven't made a decision yet," he said. "I'm thinking about taking a trip to Oregon this coming weekend. I want to see what they have to offer." Germany will know whether or not that trip has been finalized by the end of the day Wednesday.

"I'll make my decision on February 2nd," he added, also saying that he doesn't have a favorite. Geography will not play a part in his decision.

Oregon, Kansas State, Michigan, Oregon State and Washington State have all offered a scholarship to Germany, who will have 5 years to play four starting this fall. There's still a chance Eugene could enroll early, but it appears as if that will not be the most important factor when considering a school.

Meanwhile, Germany is doing the best he can as far as keeping himself in playing shape. "I've been running long distance just to keep my wind up and also 100-yard and 40-yard sprints," he said.
