Dontae Levingston has watched Oregon for years on television so when the Ducks recently offered the Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne offensive lineman it was an exciting time - and it meant they moved up high on his list.
"That's been my dream school," Levingston said. "I don't know stuff off the field but stuff on TV I watch their games every Saturday. I knew Jonathan Stewart, his little sister and I are friends, so Jonathan Stewart told me about Oregon so I have a little background on them.
"I don't know what it is about Oregon. It's just one of those schools when you watch them on TV when you're growing up, it's like that's where I want to be."
Levingston, one of the top offensive linemen at Sunday's Los Angeles Nike Camp, probably won't make a commitment yet because so many new schools are getting involved. It's been a busy time on the recruiting trail for him.
Arizona, New Mexico, SMU and Wyoming have also offered Levingston, a 6-foot-5, 279-pound prospect who said Arizona State and San Diego State have picked up interest recently. Other than Oregon, the Wildcats are also playing a big factor in his recruiting after he visited Tucson for a junior day.
"That's competition there," Levingston said. "That's another one of my top schools that I watch on TV every Saturday. I used to go to Arizona every summer. I went to their junior day and that was really good."
Since more programs are getting involved with Levingston, he said he's going to try to be as patient as possible with recruiting to see what else becomes available in the next couple months.
Oregon is definitely standing out to him but Levingston seems more interested in getting better and seeing if other schools start recruiting him before making a commitment anytime soon.
"In the last couple weeks schools have been after me," Levingston said. "It makes me feel like I'm doing a good job but I'm not satisfied because I know I can get better, get stronger and get faster. I still have a lot to improve."
