Shreve Sky High On Oregon

Quarterback, Tyler Shreve, of Redlands East Valley HS in Redlands, California is generating quite a buzz on the recruiting circuit. One of the schools Shreve is hearing from is the University of Oregon. Does he have any interest in Oregon? "They're probably one of my top schools," responded Shreve to the question of his overall interest in the Ducks at this time, "I'd really like to go there."

Have you had any contact with Oregon?

"I receive mail and I've been in contact with the tight ends coach (Tom Osborne). I've met with him at school quite a few times and he's told me that they [the coaching staff] would stay in touch with me and continue sending me letters…I've probably met him three or four times."

Do you currently hold an offer from Oregon?


What would you say your overall interest in Oregon is?

"They're probably one of my top schools. I'd really like to go there."

What is it about Oregon that has you interested?

"I like their system. They have the same system as us [Shreve's high school]. They have the best schemes, the quarterback likes to run a lot…you can't beat Oregon."

How would you describe yourself as a player?

"I'm probably more of a dual-threat guy. I can throw the ball and I'm an elite runner."

Would you compare yourself to anyone at the collegiate or professional level?

"Probably not. I have my own style."

What are you looking for in a program?

"Some place with a great quarterback coach, good contact with the head coach, and the guys on the staff. Obviously, from a player's standpoint, I want to know who's going with me in to battle."

Do you have any offers from other schools?

"[No] SC (Southern California) is really looking at me, Idaho, Arizona, Arizona State…Idaho said they might offer, but they want to look at my film first."

Where would Oregon stand if they were to offer?

"I think they would be my leader, or pretty much in my top three."

Are you planning on going to any camps this summer?

"I just got invited to play in a 7-on-7 camp which is in Las Vegas and then I'm supposed to go to a Nike camp at USC and I'm going to try to go to the Elite 11 [qualifier] again."

Are you planning on attending any Junior Days?

"Tennessee wants me to go a Junior Day and I think I'm supposed to go to Oregon in a month or so."
