Will Final Weekend Wrap up Recruiting?

National Letter of Intent day is just seven days off and the Oregon Ducks will host one more weekend of visitors. On the same weekend the men's basketball team hosts UCLA and USC, the Ducks' football coaching staff will bring in visitors in hopes of answering question and picking up verbal commitments to fill outstanding needs.

Scout.com lists four visitors that will make the trip to Eugene this upcoming weekend. Linebacker Larry Grant, 6-3, 225, 4.45 from City College of San Francisco, is a 5-star junior college player and could see immediate playing time for the Ducks next season. Running back Andre Crenshaw, 5-10, 185, 4.47, Lancaster (Calif.) Antelope Valley HS is a 3-star rated player that could add depth to the running back position. Tight end Garry Grafford, 6-4, 225, Concord (Calif.) Ygnacino Valley HS and kicker Andrew Aguila, 6-0, 175, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco HS are also reportedly scheduled to visit.

It is also possible that Matangi Tonga, a 4-star defensive tackle from Aragon HS (San Mateo, Calif.) may also visit. Tonga, 6-2, 250, 4.9 had indicated that he would visit Oregon after visiting BYU on January 6, but has not yet made a trip to Eugene.

February 1, 2006 is the earliest date a National Letter of Intent (NLOI) can be sent to a university. Only when the NLOI is sent and received by a football program does a commitment become binding. According to Scout.com's list of commitments, Oregon now has 18 verbal commitments.
