Littlejohn talks about his commitment

Sierra LB Bryson Littlejohn (6-2, 230) quickly became one of the fastest rising stars in the JC ranks this past season and earlier this week he made his decision on where he wanted to spend the next two years of his football career. Oregon got the call and Littlejohn spoke with on Thursday night detailing why he chose Oregon and what he's looking forward to...

"Everything about my trip was great," Littlejohn noted about his trip to Eugene last weekend. "They staff is great, the players were really welcoming and just spent time talking to me about the school and the program and Eugene just felt comfortable to me.

"Basically, it came down to Arizona and Oregon and the Arizona staff and the school was great, but the problem was...that I'd have to live in Arizona.

"There's nothing wrong with the state, but Oregon has the perfect weather for me and it just felt like home. I can't say enough about how they treated me and made sure I felt like I could fit in there well."

Littlejohn had an outstanding season for Sierra in 2008 posting 72 tackles, 9 sacks, 3 forced fumbles, 3 interceptions and 14.5 tackles for loss while earning First Team Gridwire All-American honors.

Besides his offers from Oregon and Arizona, Littlejohn also sported offers from Boise State, Kansas, California and Nevada and he was getting heavy interest from USC as well.

Littlejohn will finish his AA degree in March and he plans to enroll at Oregon April 1st so he can take part in spring ball. He'll have three years to play two once he arrives in Eugene.
