Gasu clears things up

Santa Ana DT Spencer Gasu put in a call to JCFootball.com on Sunday evening to clear some things up. There are reports out there that he's committed to the University of Oregon and that he has injured his shoulder. He cleared up one misconception and confirmed another when we talked…

"I don't know where they got the information that I hurt my shoulder," Gasu said emphatically. "I need to get that cleared up – I haven't hurt my shoulder. I actually played both ways (Saturday) and you couldn't that if you were hurt.

"I'm not sure why someone would write that because I haven't even been missing time because of an injury. So, just so people know, I'm not hurt and I'm fine."

Gasu also wanted to clarify his commitment to Oregon.

"I got my offer from them a couple of weeks ago, during our bye week," Gasu said. "They offered me and they were really loyal to me because when I was in high school them and Oregon State recruited me really hard, but when we found out I wasn't going to qualify, OSU dropped me and the Oregon coaches kept on me and told me I still would have an offer waiting.

"They offered me and told me they need inside guys on defense and they liked that fact that I could even move outside if they need me to in a different set so they liked my versatility. They said they want to come see me soon and I'm planning on going up there to visit them for the Civil War (vs. Oregon State)."

So does that mean that Gasu is solid to Oregon? Not quite.

"Well, since I committed, a lot of schools found out about that and they've been coming on me pretty hard," Gasu said. "Tennessee has been asking for film on me for a while and they're the school I really want to check out so I would say I'm 75% committed to Oregon, but I might take another visit or two depending on who else offers me."

For the season, Gasu has posted 25 tackles, seven tackles for loss and two sacks as a run stuffer for the Dons and he and his teammates will face Mt. San Antonio next weekend on the road.
