So, how do the Ducks look? Some say McKnight is leaning toward UCLA, others say he is a lock for Florida. Georgia Tech and Tennessee have also been in the mix. Then there is Oregon. Rhema took a official visit to Eugene for the Civil War game and reports are that he was very impressed. One advantage Oregon might have is that his high school coach, Mitch Olson, really respects the Webfoot program. Garrett Sabol also played his high school ball for Olson at Kennedy and there is a strong rumor that his sister recently signed a letter of intent to play softball for the Ducks. In addition, Rhema is an excellent student and is attracted to Oregon's Physiology program, which he considers to be one of the best in the country. Add it all up and the inside word is that Oregon is in the thick of it for Rhema McKnight and might even be the current favorite. Only time will tell, but don't count out the Ducks.
Can The Ducks Sign #1?
Rhema McKnight hasn't bought into the recruiting hype and has been pretty secretive about his favorite colleges. One thing is clear, just about every college with a football team wants him. McKnight is a 6-3, 185, 4.4 PrepStar Dream Team rated player who Pac-West Football rated as the #1 wide receiver prospect in the West and top five nationally. Ironically, he is so versatile that after his senior year he was honored as 1st team All-Orange County as a defensive back. On offense, because of need, he moved to the quarterback position this year after starring for Kennedy HS (La Palma, Ca) as a receiver last year. As a junior he did pretty well, he was named All-State, All-CIF, All-Orange County and league player of the year.
