"I was just up there this weekend and I really loved it," George Uko, one of the top defensive players in country said of his trip to Oregon in a text message to eDuck Sports. "Just amazing, I loved them so much. It's the only college I've really seen but still I was like, woooowow, you know?"
Uko is a 4-star defensive tackle ranked seventh nationally out of Don Antonio Lugo HS, in Chino, Calif.
Oregon was the second school to take an interest in Uko after Nebraska and has established a good relationship. Oregon is now one of George's five finalists and he will likely be scheduling an official visit in the fall. Eugene was a destination that Uko and his father Johnson have been planning on traveling to for some time and they weren't disappointed.
Since Oregon's interest in Uko became known there have been programs from all over the country courting him for his services. While he hasn't said exactly who his top program is, it's a sure bet that Oregon is right at the top of the list.
Last week Uko was named the top defensive performer at Scout's combine in Los Angeles.
Trip to Eugene: WOW!
