Oregon to check in with Rahming

Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern wide receiver T.J. Rahming discusses Oregon entering the fray during his recruitment.

Speedy McEachern wide receiver T.J. Rahming is starting to see bigger programs enter the picture as the recruiting process rolls on for him this spring.

Recently, Rahming has seen Oregon express interest in him. His teammate Taj Griffin, already a Ducks verbal commit, had a hand in connecting the staff with Rahming following a phone conversation with offensive coordinator Scott Frost.

"Probably about two weeks ago Coach Frost called Taj to talk about me and asked if I still went to McEachern and stuff like that," Rahming said. "He said he'd been watching my film and a couple one-on-one's from camps…and he was saying he liked me a lot."

Once Rahming got a chance to talk with Frost in person, he learned what attributes of his stand out in the coaching staff's eyes.

"They told me they like how I can get in and out of my cuts and my acceleration," Rahming said. "I have great route-running [ability] and they said they need someone like me."

Rahming is going to wait to schedule a visit to Oregon until the summer. But, with spring practice about to start at McEachern, Frost has let the junior know they'll be by to see him sooner than that.

"Our spring practice starts Monday," Rahming said. "I think he said next Wednesday."

The hope for Rahming is that he lands an offer from Oregon once they see him in person. With his speed and ability to be a factor on special teams as well as at wide receiver, he thinks Oregon would be a good fit for his skill set.

"My interest is very high," Rahming said. "Of course I think I'd fit great in the offense because it fits my style of play. I could see myself doing really good at Oregon."

Duke and Tennessee are the two programs that Rahming cited as recruiting him the hardest at this point. But, schools like Auburn and Miami are also in pursuit and the three-star prospect is confident he can land offers from all of them.

"They're all coming back in the spring," Rahming said. "So once they see me live, I think I can get the offers."
