Mondeaux To Visit Oregon

Portland (Ore.) Jesuit two-way athlete Henry Mondeaux is receiving more attention on the recruiting trail and is planning on taking in a few visits over the coming weeks.

Henry Mondeaux is a top Oregon prospect that is versatile enough to play a variety of positions. The 6-foot-4, 224-pound athlete is a force playing either tight end or defensive end for Jesuit, and has been already accumulated three offers from Pac-12 schools in Oregon State, Cal and Washington.

Though Mondeaux said that the Huskies are currently recruiting him the hardest, there are a few other top programs that could be close to offering him.

"I know that Tennessee wants me to come to their summer camp," "But, I think Boise State and Oregon both could be close."

Oregon, a school in the Portland-native's backyard, is hosting Mondeaux this weekend.

"I'm actually going down on Saturday," Mondeaux said. "I know that they don't really know what position they want me to play yet, but I've been in contact with quite a few Oregon coaches."

Those coaches include defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti, linebackers coach Don Pellum, tight ends coach Tom Osborne and new defensive line coach Ron Aiken.

"A lot of the coaches say they like what I do with my hands and they are seeing me as more of a defensive end/outside linebacker type," Mondeaux said. "They like my speed and aggressiveness. They like how hard I've been working."

Mondeaux said he will be busy during his visit, which will include a tour of the facilities and sitting in on some team activities.

"I know I'm going down early because they want to get me into to some of the position meetings," Mondeaux said.

In addition to visiting Oregon, Mondeaux is planning to take in a Junior Day at Boise State next week and may travel to Washington and Washington State to take in spring practice.

Right now, Mondeaux is enjoying track season where he throws shot put and discus. Several of his teammates are dual sport athletes, and they've been working together to keep each other on top of their game.

"Most of the football players do track so we have a football workout instead of the track practice," Mondeaux said. "On the weekends, I've been in the weight room with a bunch of the seniors this year that are going to play college next year."
