On Oregon ducks:
“This next weekend they’re going to welcome the No. 1 offensive lineman in the nation – Josh Conerly Jr. He had a top five and Oregon wasn’t in it. He ended up naming his top six and everything suddenly Oregon was on it.
Conerly Jr. narrowed its list of six finalists to Washington, Oregon, Miami, Oklahoma, USC and Michigan.
On Dan Lanning’s staff in Oregon:
“He’s got a staff that has huge recruiting abilities with Tosh Lupoi, Adrian Klemm, Junior Adams…while he’s got a staff that has a reputation for recruiting a lot…there’s more than the guys from Jimmy-and- Joe.”
In the State of Oregon:
“The sky’s the limit…there was adequate but not superb quarterback play…when the offensive guns click, the offense is gearing up…Oregon State hasn’t hit the gate heavy this year. They did not touch the heavy of the JUCO. They are heavy for high school students.
On Beavers three-star QB Travis Throckmorton:
“Throckmorton had a little injury problem (in high school). But he is the type of player who, in a year when there would have been a normal evaluation period, would have had more juice in his recruitment. He’s the kind of player Oregon State can get.
“Their big thing is they have to recruit this state (Washington). Chris Petersen had built momentum… which was pretty much wiped out under Jimmy Lake… Kalen DeBoer’s big thing is to regain the momentum that Chris Petersen had in the state.
On what happened to Jimmy Lake’s recruiting spree:
“There’s a part of me that wants to believe he just fell victim to the pandemic. He had some momentum… the pandemic hits, no one can make it happen in the spring, then they didn’t get results on the pitch that season…it snowballed and snowballed and got worse.
On Washington State and Jake Dickert:
“I like what Dickert has done. He’s done a good job bringing back coaches who understand the air raid. You can never compete with Oregon, Washingtons up North, but you can still build a good Pac roster. -12.
