A soft commit?

There's been rumors all weekend that Josh Tauanu'u, a 6-2, 285 pound defensive lineman from Long Beach Poly (Calif.) committed Oregon early on his official visit. We haven't been able to reach Tauanu'u yet as he has been probably the hardest player for us to track down all year, but according to his family, they believe he has committed.

"Josh hasn't been home yet but I think he did," Tauanu'u older brother said. "Before the trip, that was his plan, to commit before coming home. He called here and left a message he was going to Oregon so it sounds legit but he won't be home until tomorrow so you can try back then."

Until then, we'll call Tauanu'u a soft commit and we will try and solidify it tomorrow. The Ducks have been leading most of the year for the talented defensive lineman and his commitment could help Oregon recruit his teammate and best friend Junior Lemau'u who is a soft commit to Cal right now.
