For Hemet (Calif.) offensive lineman Hamani Stevens, his decision was much tougher than he thought. He went back and forth between Oregon and UCLA for the last 48 hours and still wasn't 100% sure of his decision moments before he announced.
In the end, Stevens decided to leave home and signed with the Ducks.
"It was very stressful for me," Stevens said. "Tuesday during the day, I was feeling UCLA and thought I was going there. I just loved the coaches, my family wanted me close and I know they're going to win.
"Then later that night, I thought about it some more and just decided Oregon was the best fit for me. I can't really explain it but I just felt so comfortable there and I love the people at Oregon. Coach Belotti is a great guy, I love the support the football program gets and in the end, I just had a better vibe about Oregon than UCLA.
"Last night, I was feeling really good about it but when I woke up this morning, I was stressed out and not sure what I was going to do again. It wasn't that I was having second thoughts about Oregon, it was just this decision was so big that I was feeling a little overwhelmed by it.
"I'm happy with it though, I'm happy to be going to Oregon and I feel good about it. This wasn't easy for me but in my heart, I feel I made the right choice."
