2017 Sheldon (Eugene, Or.) OL Cody Shear recapped his visit to Montlake this weekend and also previewed his summer plans

2017 Sheldon (Eugene, Or.) OL Cody Shear took visit to Montlake over the weekend and he updated Dawgman.com about his trip and where things stand on the recruiting front...

"It was a great visit," Shear said. "The campus up there is really unique. I was up there for a game last season, so I had already seen the game atmosphere there, but I also was really excited to meet with coach (Chris) Strausser since coach (Jonathan) Smith was the coach that I've been talking to for them.

"Coach Strausser said he'd been watching my film and he really liked it. He said they like what I can do on the field, so now they need to make sure I'm the kind of player they want in the program, the OKG 'thing', so they are still evaluating me.

"I really like their offense and their practice was intense, so it was a real positive visit for me and now we'll just keep moving forward and I'll just be patient and wait to see what they want to do."

Shear currently holds 11 offers -- Arizona, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Ohio, Buffalo, Central Michigan, UMass, Toledo, Tulane and Montana State -- and he's getting a lot of attention from other Pac 12 programs including Washington.

"The only other visit I am planning right now is Oregon, but I don't have a date on that one yet," Shear noted. 

As far as when he plans to make a decision, Shear said he's in no rush, but he's also not going to draw out the process.

"I'm not the kind of guy who will play the 'hat dance' and put a hat on or anything like that," Shear said. "I am really happy with all of my offers right now and I'm going to go home and think about what I want to do, but I'm not in a hurry and I'm waiting on a few schools to see what they are going to do."

Shear had a dominant junior season for a 10-2 Sheldon squad that made it all the way to the 5A State Semi-Finals before losing to eventual champion Jesuit.

“I like to pass-block and run-block and I feel really comfortable doing either one,” Shear told Scout earlier this offseason. “If I had to just choose one though, I’m probably better at run-blocking just because of my aggressiveness and how I like to punish guys and finish my blocks.”

Shear hopes to hit the camp circuit this summer, but as of yet, he's unsure of which camps he'll take part in.
