Henry Mondeaux is ready for his weekend trip to Oregon to meet the new coaches, get a tour of the campus and see if the Ducks are ready to offer.
"It's supposed to be like a little junior day for me," Mondeaux said. "I'm going down to meet the coaches and take the tour. I'm definitely very interested in Oregon. It's a great program and a really good football school.
"I think they want me to play defense but I'm not entirely sure yet. I'm sure they'll tell me a little bit more what they think on Saturday. I'm excited to get there and meet all the new coaches."

The Portland (Ore.) Jesuit prospect can play tight end or defensive end and that has made him an attractive recruit for many schools.
His former teammate, Doug Brenner, signed with the Ducks last recruiting cycle and has been used as a conduit between Mondeaux and the Oregon staff.
Mondeaux, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound prospect, said he's excited to visit Eugene and he's hopeful an offer could be close.
If the Ducks did offer, Mondeaux said they would definitely be one of the favorites although he still plans to take his time with the recruiting process and not rush any commitment.
"I'm not entirely sure about an offer," Mondeaux said. "I think they could offer me. I know they've been in contact with Doug Brenner and kind of using him to talk to me and they sound pretty interested but you can never be too certain.
"It would be one of the top schools I have right now but I'm going to definitely wait to make my decision."
So far, Mondeaux has landed offers from Cal, Oregon State and Washington and he recently returned from a trip to Berkeley.
The Portland Jesuit standout said UCLA and Colorado have gotten more involved recently and he's pretty much hearing from the entire Pac-12 with the exceptions of USC and Utah.
