Recruiting preview — Washington week
Five-star teammates John Houston and Rasheem Green, a linebacker and defensive end from Gardena (Calif.) will be in town and they’ll be joined by Cheyenne (Wyo.) East athlete Tevis Bartlett, a three-star prospect. Houston and Green have both been on Oregon’s radar for months and both look to be impact guys at the next level. This will be the first official visit for each player. Green, a top three prospect at his position, is a US Army All-American standing 6-foot-5, 290-pounds. So far, he has averaged over six tackles per game this season for Junipero Serra High School. Ducks offensive guard commit Zach Okun has been in Green’s ear to join him in Eugene next season and a successful visit could help edge him in that direction. Green told Scout.com’s Gerard Martinez that he will visit Stanford as well, but that he’s still sorting out the rest of his visits. Houston, an Under Armour All-American has spoken highly of Oregon on numerous occasions but it could be hard to get him to leave Southern California. A top five prospect at his position standing 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, Houston has been having a fantastic senior season, including a 20-plus tackle game against Bellevue (Wash.) earlier this year. Needing a true linebacker for the 2015 class, Houston could be about as good as it gets from the high school ranks for Oregon at that position. Defensive coordinator Don Pellum has done a good job of maintaining a relationship with Houston throughout the process, which has been one of the key reasons that the Ducks have remained in the picture up to this point. Outside of Oregon, Houston has also indicated that he’ll also visit Oklahoma. Bartlett spoke with eDuck.com earlier this week about his upcoming visit, and claimed he is excited to see what a game day in Eugene will be like. Bartlett unofficially visited Oregon previously, but was only in town for half of a day, so this trip will give him the opportunity to see what UO has to offer on and off the field in a full capacity. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect plays on both sides of the ball for East High School as their quarterback and a linebacker, but the Ducks like him at the latter position. He also has a decorated wrestling background which boosts his profile as a guy who can get it done just about anywhere. Without a true linebacker yet from the 2015 class, Bartlett is a great place for Oregon to start. Bartlett has taken only one other official visit to Colorado and is unsure of where he’ll visit next after Oregon. He has offers from the likes of Missouri, Cal, Utah, Washington, Iowa and Wyoming among others. Oregon wide receiver commit Alex Ofodile has told that he will also take his official visit this weekend according to Scout.com's Derek Young. Defensive back verbal commit Jihree Stewart has also indicated that he will be in town according to his Twitter account.
