Cunningham gets Oregon track offer

Oregon hosted Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman athlete Randall Cunningham II and he walked away with an offer. But, from which sport?

Oregon hosted Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman athlete Randall Cunningham II last week. Cunningham, a track and football player, got a chance to experience the atmosphere at a school known for excelling at both sports.

Previously, Cunningham and his father, the former NFL quarterback of the same name, met with track coach Jamie Cook at his home to discuss the possibility of coming to Oregon. After the meeting Cunningham had his sights set on a trip.

"We talked about track and taking a visit out there," Cunningham said. "After that it was pretty much set that I'd definitely like to take a visit out there when I got the chance."

Cunningham is still a developing quarterback, but he is dangerous in the open field with his legs. His size would make him an ideal big target wide receiver at the next level and his track background, where he's posted an impressive 7-foot, 3 1/4-inches, in the high jump, only adds to his upside.

Cunningham was escorted by Cook for most of the trip, which started last Thursday night. He got a chance to check out the facilities and Hayward Field, which impressed him.

"We got a chance to see a football practice, see the new facilities and the locker room," Cunningham said. "My host was Devon Allen. He's a good guy."

On Friday, Cunningham received his track offer which made him excited. His football offer, however, is still up in the air.

"The football team told me they were just going to keep watching me and hopefully make a decision later in the year," Cunningham said.

Despite not walking away with the offer, Cunningham said he was able to see how he would fit into the Oregon offense.

"I got a good gauge," Cunningham said. "I think I would be able to fit into the Oregon offense very well."

After the visit, Cunningham has Oregon as a favorite, but said he needed to take a couple of more visits to solidify his top teams.

"I plan on taking a visit to USC,a visit to UCLA and Arizona State or Arizona," Cunningham said.
