Mesquite, Texas, quarterback Kelly Page had a really strong summer, showcasing his skills at the Texas 7-on-7 Tournament and several other camps throughout the nation.
That strong summer after coming back from an injury in his junior season, led to early offer from Tulsa. He committed after thinking things over, but one school kept pursuing him despite the pledge.
And now that one school is where he's ending up at.
"I just committed to Oregon," Page, who is 6-foot-3 and 202 pounds, said. "When I committed to Tulsa, I stayed in touch with the Oregon coaches. They got my game tape about two days before I committed to Tulsa. I stayed in touch with them, texting them when it was still legal. They asked me to call them, so I did and they offered me.
"I think it was last Friday when they officially offered me. I talked things over with my parents, and I liked what I heard from the coaches. So, I decided to go ahead and commit to Oregon. I feel great about it."
So why the switch?
"They've got great coaching stability there," Page said. "Mike Bellotti has been there a lot time, and so have a lot of the other coaches. The coaching stability is something that really stood out to me. I talked to coach Chip Kelly and coach Bellotti each for about an hour, and they said the offense we run at Mesquite is exactly like what they run. They said I would fit in perfectly."
While Page said it was tough to turn away from Gus Malzahn and Tulsa, the chance to play in the Pac 10 was too tough to turn down. He said the Ducks told him at this point he is their quarterback recruit for this year's class, but they also did mention that another signal-caller might be taken.
"They said I'm their quarterback recruit until the end of recruiting," he said. "But if they have another scholarship open up, then they're going to go after another guy. That doesn't matter to me. I love to compete. I want to go in there and compete for the job."
Page had a really strong summer, coming back from a torn ACL that he suffered in the fifth game of his junior season. Before the injury he had 61 completions in 103 attempts for 752 yards and eight touchdowns in the air and added 342 yards on 63 carries and six touchdowns on the ground.
