Visit includes a trip to loud Mac Court

Rover Marvin Johnson, 5-11, 185, Compton (Calif.)Dominguez HS visited the University of Oregon this weekend and had a great time.

"It was cool," Marvin Johnson said of his visit to Oregon.

Johnson, had verbally committed to Oregon early in January, made his official visit this weekend (Jan. 13-15) and was able to tour the university, meet coaches, players and some of the other recruits. He also attended the Oregon-Arizona game on Saturday afternoon at McArthur Court.

Johnson indicated that Major Culbert, Alfred Rowe, Jamere Holland,Chad Peppars, Remene Alston and Dexter Manley also visited.

Johnson thinks Manley gave a commitment to the Ducks on his visit.

The basketball game was fun, but hard to keep up on the action on the floor because the students didn't sit down during the game. However the game was noisy.

"It was loud," said Johnson of the basketball game.

Even though Johnson and others have given a verbal commitment nothing is binding until a letter of intent is sent to the University. The earliest a National Letter of Intent can be sent this year is Feb. 1, 2006.
