It is difficult to separate these four since all are about 6'-4", demonstrate excellent footwork, are polished, and can make the tough throws. Danville's Kyle Wright is the biggest name of the group after passing for over 3000 yards and 26 touchdowns last season, but Oregon is a long shot for his services since he is leaning hard toward USC and Tennessee. Dennis Dixon from San Leandro (Ca.) has the strongest arm of the bunch and has been known to rifle passes a staggering 80 yards in the air. This Randall Cunningham clone will be attending the Nike Camp in Eugene in two weeks and plans to take a close look at Oregon's facilities during the visit. Johnny DuRocher is the top quarterback in the Northwest (Spanaway, Wa.) this year and his initial interest has been directed toward football powers Washington and Oregon. Other schools that DuRocher likes in the west are ASU, UCLA, Stanford and Cal appears poised to push into the mix.
Signing a blue-chip quarterback is a top priority for Oregon's class of 2003. Not surprisingly, Mike Bellotti and Andy Ludwig spent much of their time watching the quarterback drills on Saturday. It is difficult to imagine that they could go wrong with any of these guys.
