Oregon was out in Memphis on Tuesday checking up on prospects in the area. Offensive coordinator Scott Frost stopped by Whitehaven High School to evaluate a few 2016 prospects, in particular four-star safety Dante Vaughn, three-star defensive tackle Michael Perry and cornerback Rodney Saulsberry.

Saulsberry spoke with eDuck about the evaluations and what Oregon thinks of the trio.

“It was really good,” he said. “I got to talk with Coach Frost and touch bases and he said that Coach (Mark) Helfrich wanted him to pay a visit to me, Dante and Michael Perry. He just told us that he wants to get us out and on campus for camp and we’d be a good addition.

Saulsberry said that Frost was impressed with how the DB’s in particular improved the defense with their presence.

“He said that the way we play really compliments the team’s defense and we’re playmakers,” he said.

So far during his recruitment, Saulsberry has been hearing a lot from Indiana, Memphis, Northwestern, Yale, Penn and Purdue. He attended junior day at Memphis and has unofficially visited Purdue. But Oregon is one program that he said he has high interest in.

“They’ve been my favorite team since I was little,” he said. “That’d be my dream school.”

He's looking to impress at the Sound Mind Sound Body camp in June, where he expects to see plenty of Pac-12 and Big Ten coaches. During the offseason, Saulsberry is working on improving his overall game and bulking up for his senior year.

“Keep getting stronger and faster,” he said. “With me begin a shorter corner, bulk and aggressiveness and speed is going to play a big part in my game.”
