Troy Warner is back on the market

Aug. 25 -- It has been a rough few weeks for Oregon as the Ducks just lost their second 4-star de-commitment this month with San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills corner Troy Warner deciding to open up the process...

Just a few weeks after receiver Theo Howard de-committed from Oregon, the Ducks lost another key commit as defensive back Troy Warner has decided to open things up as well.

"I started to think about de-committing a couple of weeks ago," Warner said. "Internally, I was having some reservations. It's such a big decision and I started to think I might have jumped the gun a little and committed too soon. As time went on, I didn't feel like my comfort level was where it needed to be and I just wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing.

"I had a few schools that were still recruiting me, namely BYU and Stanford plus USC. USC hasn't offered yet but I've been talking to Coach Heyward a lot and they seem really interested. I have a ton of respect for BYU since my brother goes there and they have been on me from the beginning and Stanford was my No. 2 choice when I first committed to Oregon so I'm interested in all three schools for sure."

Warner said Oregon is still in the mix and he's actually open to all colleges right now.

"I'm not closing any doors right now, I'm open to everyone," Warner said. "Before I committed, Notre Dame and UCLA were high on my list so I would be very interested in hearing from both of them again. There's a few schools that haven't offered yet that I would love an offer from. I mentioned USC already and TCU is another school that hasn't offered that I'm interested in too.

"I'm on track to graduate early so I would like to commit in November. My plan is to take four of five of my visits during the season and then make a decision. Right now, I don't have anything set up with anyone. This just happened a few minutes ago so I'm going to sit back and see who is interested and then I'll sort of my visits.
