Marcus Everett Still Undecided

The wide receiver/athlete, <b>Marcus Everett</b> of West Hills Chaminade, returns from his trip to Oregon, and talks about the race between the Ducks and the Bruins. There's also another school that could become a major player...

While UCLA has led for West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade athlete Marcus Everett, 6-1, 195, Oregon is making a fast move. After Everett's trip to Eugene this past weekend, the Ducks have pulled even with UCLA.

"It was a good trip, I had a good time," Everett said. "There were a lot of people on the trip. They have the most amazing facilities, probably the nicest in the nation. They are neck and neck with UCLA."

Everett has already visited UCLA and also tripped to Washington State, leaving him with two more visits he could take. One place that he is scheduled to visit is Boston College, though he is not sure he is going to make it that far. "Boston College is recruiting me as a defensive back. I don't know if I am going to take the trip though. It's basically between those four schools right now, though it could change."

The change is that Notre Dame has recently made some progress with Everett, to the point that coaches from the Fighting Irish staff will be at Chaminade to watch film of Everett, as they are recruiting him as a defensive back. "The coaches said if they like what they see, they could offer. If that happened, I would definitely trip there and see what they have to offer. My (remaining) trips just depend on what happens with Notre Dame. Once I find out what happens with them, I will be able to make my decision."

This week, the Everett household will entertain Oregon Coach Mike Belloti and Coach Karl Dorrell, as they will both be making their in-home visits.

Everett, a low to mid-major level basketball prospect, has had some conflicts with his recruiting trips and basketball, making things tough for him. "I had to miss a game last weekend when I left for Oregon, and we ended up losing. It's tough because I have to leave my teammates and go away."

Everett is fully qualified.
