Elite defensive back Elijah Gates took his long awaited visit to Oregon over the weekend and had a great trip.

The Ducks have been recruiting Gates heavily for some time and the athlete was able to connect with the staff on a personal level, which is very key in this recruitment. 

Gates had his parents with him on the trip too and the whole family enjoyed their time in Eugene. It's safe to say the Ducks will be a major player in this recruitment. Gates plans to visit Notre Dame in June and a trip to Nebraska is possible as well. You can probably also expect a visit to UCLA over spring practice as well.
