19.Jan.2010 Owa Situation
I’m not sure what to think of this.
On the 15th he comes back from the Army Navy game and writes off Oregon State, saying, “I just didn’t feel like I could see myself there.” Then, on the 18th, there’s a report saying Oregon State is back in the mix and Owa is searching for a reason to write off one of the 4 schools he’s still considering. To compound issues, Mike Riley has been rumored to have an in-home visit for about 3 weeks now but never seems to take the in-home. Oregon, ruled out about a month ago, is now rumored to be the favorite.
So what happens?
I still stick with my contention that having two Oregon schools in the top 4 means he wants to stay local. And you heard straight from the man’s mouth that he can’t see himself at OSU, which leaves Oregon standing.
I have to say…this is a really strange recruitment. The way Oregon shot into the picture, and Owa being pulled in every direction, well, it screams foul play to these eyes. You can bet there is some shady recruiting going on behind the scenes. The kid doesn’t seem able to see through it, though.
