Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Rob Moseley called it a recruiting coup as highly touted five star lineman Arik Armstead (6'8" 285lbs) announced he would sign his letter of intent to attend Oregon.

Aaron Fentress compares Armstead to Haloti Ngata.

Ted Miller wonders if Armstead's good friend, (five star safety) Shaq Thompson will choose Oregon to join his buddy.

• Aaron Fentress has a mini-profile on Oregon commit QB Jake Rodrigues.

The 2012 recruit committed to Oregon in May, graduated from high school in December and enrolled at UO this month, making him eligible to join the team this spring.

So while Bennett, who appeared in several games last fall, and Mariota, a highly-touted and viable challenger, are the front-runners, Rodrigues could very well find himself in the mix in the near future.

• Keeerrrttt1 wonders if the "Nike-U" nicknake should be changed to "X's & O's University?

The University of Oregon has long been a place of tremendous individual talents, even when the team performances were not noteworthy. From the College/NFL Hall of Famers that once graced the Oregon sidelines (14 in total) to the long lineage of recognizable coaches that at one time did the same, Oregon always has and continues to be a place of both tremendous long-term loyalty while developing some of the greatest football minds.

Really good story by Kurt, read the rest here.

I don't know about a recruiting coup, but I love his choice, and hope he rubs off on his friends as well :-)
