Langley racking up offers early

Pleasanton (Calif.) Foothill ATH Isaiah Langley has 13 offers from around the country. Where does Oregon fit in?

At 6-foot, 165-pounds, Foothill athlete Isaiah Langley presents a blend of athleticism and length that top programs find desirable.

A four-star prospect, he has already landed on the radar of several schools and he's racked up 13 offers including, one from Oregon. He told eDuck on Friday that he is considering all of the schools that have offered him, but isn't planning on taking unofficial visits as of right now.

"I'm really waiting for officials," Langley said. "I'm actually starting to narrow down my decisions here towards the end of the school year so I will definitely take my officials to those top seven schools."

Last year, Langley camped at Oregon before his junior campaign and enjoyed the experience, despite the inclement weather.

"It was pouring rain," Langley said. "It was a different feel getting used to playing in the rain. It's challenging, but hey it's football."

It didn't take long for Oregon to offer him and they become the fifth school to do so following Ole Miss.

"I was excited because I was the first cornerback to be offered in my class," Langley said. "They took a chance on me and offered me early. Oregon doesn't really do that, so I respect that. I'm definitely considering them and I'd love to take another trip up there."

Langley has been in contact with both John Neal and Matt Lubick, the secondary and wide receivers coaches, as well as former Ducks quarterback and graduate assistant Nate Costa. Due to his ability to thrive on either side of the ball, Langley said that both Lubick and Neal have engaged in a competition to see which one can land him.

"I would love to play corner and I would love to play wide receiver," Langley said. "I'm a team player. I will definitely go to college to play corner. If coach gives me the chance to play both sides, I'll definitely play both sides. But my first first position would be cornerback."

The most important factor in Langley's final decision will focus on education. He plans on majoring in business.

"I want to make sure that I'm well off with that degree from that college," Langley said. "I also want to know what the graduation rate of the football team is and I also want to know how many players from the football team are in my major."

In addition to education, other factors that Langley wants to evaluate are the vibe and lifestyle of the city he will be living in throughout his collegiate career, as well as opportunities for playing time.

"Everybody wants to start as a true freshman," Langley said. "I would like to know what type of playing time I'll get and what type of coaching there is and what opportunities there are."

Even though he isn't planning many trips right now, Langley is looking to nab an invite to The Opening this summer on the Nike Campus in Beaverton, OR, and he is a prospect for the U.S. Army All-American Game that will take place next January. If he participates in the game, he plans on officially starting his college career later that month.

"I'm actually in the process of graduating early," Langley said. "I put together my plan as of Tuesday and I'm finishing off all of my classes. I'll be out of high school in mid-January, so wherever I make my choice, I'll be there then."
