Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
Dale Newton lays out what the Arik Armstead commitment means for Oregon.

It means Cal, UW and USC didn't get him.

If the young man from Sacramento applies himself on the practice field and in the weight room and classroom, he can become a great, dominating college football player.

• ESPN's Craig Haubert (via Ted Miller) believes Armstead would help the Ducks on the O-line.

 He's a good fit for their offensive scheme with his combination of size and athletic skills. He can quickly come off the ball low and hard, knock defenders back and, at times, dominate them in the run game.

Ty and Dan @The Solid Verbal talk recruiting news which includes the surprise Oregon signing of Arik Armstead.

• Under the can't win them all category, Aaron Fentress reports Armstead's good friend, safety Shaq Thompson  has given his verbal commitment to Washington.

• Dale Newton believes Oregon can finish strong in recruiting if the land a few key players. Here are two from his list:

Bralon Addison and Chance Allen: The two swift, athletic wide receivers visited Oregon this week and are childhood friends, playing at rival schools a few miles from each other in Missouri City, Texas. Both originally committed to other schools but came away impressed by their Oregon visit.

Wow...I can't believe Shaq would choose Washington over Oregon, especially since his buddy is going to Oregon. They're paying him.
