Oregon does not shy away from recruiting prospects from different parts of the country and the Ducks have extended a scholarship to Staten Island (N.Y.) Curtis defensive end Dominique Easley.
The way things are going now Easley stands to be considered one of the top prospects in not only the Northeast, but the nation.
The 6-foot-3, 257-pound pass-rusher now holds offers from Oregon, UConn, Boston College, Duke, Maryland, Rutgers and Syracuse.
"I've had the offer from Oregon for about a week or two now, and I just got the offer from UConn in the mail," Easley said on Saturday afternoon.
"(Oregon) is a good school. I like them from what I know. I've talked to their defensive line coach."
Easley said he knew about the announcement that Mike Bellotti would be stepping down as coach of the Ducks, but that would not affect his decision.
Does he plan on visiting the west coast school at any point down the road?
"Yeah, if they want me to come up there on an official visit sometime later on I'd probably do that," he said. "I'd like to see what it's like out there."
Easley has been in touch with Notre Dame of late, and he feels the Irish may offer him before too long.
He is a member of the Rivals250.
