eDuck caught up with Forcier at the Scout combine in Los Angeles today and although he is not prepared to name Oregon as a top favorite, it's clear that the 6-1, 190 pound signal caller likes the Ducks a lot. Tate visited Eugene during spring drills and was able to take in some Duck practices and tour the facilities.
"I really liked the fast pace of the practices and how the quarterbacks all get a lot of snaps," said Forcier.
Like most recruits he was also dazzled with Oregon's cutting edge facilities and loves the uniforms but something more important stood out, "I really get along with all the coaches and I would love to play for Mike Bellotti," Tate added enthusiastically.
Forcier also indicated that he is well aware that Oregon's spread offense presents nearly a perfect fit for his dual threat quarterback skills and an added attraction is that the school is in the Pac-10 and a manageable distance from his San Diego home. Tate would like to get another look at the University of Oregon before he cuts his favorites list to ten this summer and he is tentatively planning to attend the Oregon Nike Elite 11 camp in June.
It would appear that the Ducks are in the hunt.
