Capital athlete solid on the Ducks spoke with Michael Carey, father of Olympia (Wash.) Capital athlete Jordan Carey, and Michael talked a little bit about Jordan's newest offer, Washington, and whether or not it affects his son's verbal commitment to the University of Oregon.

"Coach Neuheisel just told Jordan that if he changed his mind that a ride is available to him," Michael said. "It was a great conversation. He talked about how if the situations had been reversed and if Jordan had gone to Washington's summer camp they would have seen what Oregon had seen and offered."

Jordan also got re-confirmations of his previous offers extended by Louisiana Tech and Oregon State, but Michael said those offers will have no bearing on Jordan's future.

"The offers are nice, but they don't change anything," Michael said. "He's comfortable with his decision to go to Oregon and we are too."

The 6-0, 195-pound Carey, recruited to play receiver for the Ducks, has already been named to both the Tacoma News-Tribune and Seattle Times Pre-Season All-State teams. Michael also said that Jordan plans on trying to graduate early so he can enroll early and be available for Oregon's spring practices.

"That something he wants to do, and we'll know in the next month or two if it's going to be possible," Michael said.
