"I'm very happy with it (commitment to Oregon)," said Faaeteete at the Nike Football Camp held in Eugene, Oregon June 14. "Since my freshman year, when I came up here for the state playoff, I have wanted to go to Oregon. The coaches are great. (They've) been here forever."
Faaeteete showed he was the best defensive lineman prospect at the camp. He ran the forty-yard dash in 5.0 seconds, the shuttle in 4.7 seconds, jumped 25.8 inches in vertical jump and bench pressed 185 pounds 21 times.
"David was the top lineman at the camp," said Gregg Biggins, Student Sports director of recruiting. "He has the flexibility to play inside or outside in college. He is very strong and quick off the ball. I really like his attitude. He wants to go up against the best and is (fearful) of no one."
Speaking again of the Ducks, Faaeteete said he is waiting on the Oregon coaches to offer his cousin, Sekeli Faaeteete, a 6-1, 212 pound, 4.4 second forty-yard dash, fullback/linebacker prospect from San Leandro, California.
"It was always my grandfather's dream to see the two of us play ball together," said Faaeteete. Faaeteete's grandfather has since passed away and the Faaeteete cousins' grandmother, Lupe, is now carrying that torch.
"She really wants to see us together," said Faaeteete. "(Sekeli) is coming up for the Fourth of July and we'll all talk about it. He's getting interest from the Los Angeles schools and wants me to consider them, but I'm firm about Oregon and want him to come here."
