Oshay Dunmore has been confident in his commitment to Oregon and last weekend solidified his belief that he wanted to play for the Ducks.
After taking his official visit and spending time with the players after the game, Dunmore said Oregon is definitely the best fit for him.
"I stayed with Christian French and he was a pretty cool host," Dunmore said. "I got to hang out with a lot of the guys for the rest of the night and that was pretty cool. I had a good time and it was really fun. I got a sample of what it's like outside of football there and it's cool because they're all pretty good friends.
"That was my biggest concern because I know college sports are going to be a lot different than high school.
"The reason I like high school sports so much is because you have that sense of brotherhood, those are your best friends out there. It wasn't as much of a competition as I thought it would be. All the DBs hang out and even though they're battling for playing time they're all pretty good friends."
Oregon State, Washington and Duke have also offered Dunmore, a three-star athlete from Newport, Ore., who's rated No. 35 at his position in the 2012 class and third in the Oregon state rankings by Rivals.com.
He had been to Eugene numerous times so Dunmore didn't need the hard sell on the program, plus he has seen pretty much everything Oregon offers anyway, so spending time with the players was a big part of his visit.
Dunmore, who doesn't plan to take any other official trips, is projected as a free safety for the Ducks but he could also see time at wide receiver because he's such a multi-talented athlete.
In his junior season, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect rushed for 2,159 yards and 26 touchdowns and also threw for 980 yards and seven scores.
"They are saying free safety and I talked to coach (Jim) Fisher and he said I might want to speak with coach (Chip) Kelly about playing some offense," Dunmore said.
"They think I have the ability to play offense there as well so who knows really. Whatever is best for the team will be good for me."
