Pintola picks Oregon

Despite rampant reports that surfaced last week, Louis Pintola says he gave the Missouri Tigers a soft verbal, and indicated to all media services he still was considering other options.

Well, Pintola went forth in completing an official visit to Oregon last weekend, and now plans to sign with the Ducks on Thursday.

"I chose Oregon over Missouri mainly because my heart was more in Eugene than it was in Columbia," said Pintola. "Oregon offers a better program for my major, which is education, and I really liked the atmosphere there more. I felt more accepted by Oregon's players. I will sign with Oregon on Thursday."
