2019 WR Melquan Stovall from Lancaster, California

Recruiting is starting to head up for 2019 wide receiver Melquan Stovall, Paraclete High School, Lancaster, Calif. On April 15, Stovall visited Oregon and he spoke to us about his unofficial trip.

Hello Melquan Stovall, sounds like you had a nice visit to Eugene? When was that?

MS: Yes, sir I had an amazing time I was there April 15th.

Can you tell me a little about it? Had you been to Eugene before? What did you think of the school/city?

MS: That was my first time being in Eugene and I was blown away. The facilities were off the chain, and the school was amazing.

How much interest do you have in the Ducks? In general, how is recruiting going? Which schools have offered, or do you feel close to offering?

MS: I have really high interest with Oregon after the visit, two days ago they’re wide receiver coach (Mike Johnson) stopped by my school and was talking to me and he said I'm looking for a player that's ready to win a national championship and I told him I'm that guy coach. The whole PAC 12 is close to offering me, and a few other schools.

Very good! What your current height/weight/forty/bench numbers?

MS: Height: 5-9.5; weight: 178; 40-yard dash: 4.5; bench: 255.

What plans do you have for the summer?

MS: I'm going to a lot of football camps this summer, and taking a lot of unofficial visits.

Do you play any other sports?

MS: I ran track this year but it interfered with football so I couldn't run anymore.

How is your team going to be next year?

MS: We're going to be great, we got Brevin White from Chaminade high school, and the two Hunt twins from Luzinger High School, and a DE transfer coming in.

I really like Brevin White, good news if you're a WR lol. Did he happen to visit Oregon with you?

Yes sir he did.

As far as your game, what do you consider to be your strengths, and what would you like to work on over the summer?

MS: I am a playmaker put the ball in my hands when it's crunch time, I am explosive, can make a guy miss, and I will catch everything thrown my way. I am working on polishing my routes, and coming off the ball faster.

What do you do away from football for fun or to relax?

MS: I help kids around my neighborhood recently I just suffered a tragic loss of one of my close friends who I helped around my neighborhood, trained, and workout with. He had special needs, I helped him a lot, and that was a tough loss. I never really relax a lot, I'm always working on getting better, a lot of people say that they want to be great, well to be great you have to put in the work. 

Very sorry for your loss, that's rough, my prayers are with you and the family.

MS: I really appreciate it. 

You sound like a really great young man, your family should be proud.

MS: Thank you.
