Sullivan talks Ducks

Concord (Calif.) De La Salle offensive guard Drew Sullivan discusses his interest in Oregon.

At 6-foot-3, 315-pounds, De La Salle offensive guard Drew Sullivan is an aggressive and agile prospect for his size. Holding one offer from Cal, the junior is hopeful that more offers come in soon.

Lately, Sullivan has been building a bond with Oregon assistant offensive line coach Joe Bernardi. The Ducks hasve stopped by during the evaluation period and like what he and the Spartan offensive line bring to the table.

"They like how we get off the line at De La Salle," Sullivan said. "They like the whole idea of the speed and the power to get off and be able to get the defensive linemen back right away."

Able to play at either guard position or center, Sullivan is ready to play at multiple positions on the line.

"Depending on what they need, I'd play wherever they need me," Sullivan said. "I just want to get on the field."

Sullivan has a couple of connections to Oregon. He's currently coached by Spartans assistant Joe Aliotti, brother of former Ducks defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti. His brother also attends nearby Northwest Christian University next door to the Oregon campus, which has allowed the junior to get to know the school from a distance.

"My brother actually goes to a school across the street from Oregon, so I kind of corner him about what he has to say about it," Sullivan said. "Coach Bernardi is saying the same exact type of stuff about how everyone's into football and how the fan base is so dedicated."

Sullivan took an unofficial visit to Oregon a few weeks ago and, like many, was impressed by the upgrades around Autzen Stadium.

"We saw the facilities and stuff," Sullivan said. "It was crazy. It was so nice."

Cal is still pursuing Sullivan steadily but the three-star prospect is garnering interest from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, and he has established contact with Tennessee and Oklahoma.

"I just started talking to them recently," Sullivan said. "I'm kind of feeling it out and seeing how they like it."
