Spanaway (Wash.) Bethel offensive lineman Aaron Klovas has made his college decision. The All-American lineman narrowed his choices to Oregon and Washington State and his decision actually came as a surprise to us.
"I'm going to Oregon," Klovas said. "I thought things over this past weekend and just felt Oregon was the one school that didn't have any negatives. I love the facilities and coaches there and I'm planning to come down to Oregon on an unofficial visit this weekend to help out since this is their big recruiting weekend. Having Johnny (DuRocher, former teammate) there wasn't really a factor but at the same time, he's happy there and it will be cool to play with him again."
We had thought Klovas was a strong Cougar lean for the past month. He talked openly about his affection for WSU offensive line coach George Yarno and said his relationship with his position coach would be one of the most important factors in his decision. The commitment of Klovas is commit No. 5 along the offensive line for the Ducks and their top overall commitment to date in our eyes. The lineman could be the top prospect at his position in the West region and has huge upside.
In addition to the Ducks and Cougars, Klovas also visited UCLA, Arizona State and Michigan State and was also offered late in the process by Oklahoma along with just about every other school out West.
