The NIKE Camp in Eugene, (Ore.) was our first chance to get an up close look at Oregon commit Taylor Hart. The future Duck had a very solid camp and is one of the elite line prospects in the West region.
Hart measured in at a very solid 6-6, 255 pounds and has the kind of frame scouts drool over. He has an athletic build, long arms and will be at 290 pounds or so in a few years without a problem.
Hart shows the growth potential and athleticism to play inside or outside in college and has a very nice upside to him.

"I liked him a lot," NIKE lead DL coach Marty Spalding said. "He has good size and is very strong. He has a motor and once he learns more about technique, he's going to be very good."
As a junior, Hart totaled 59 tackles and eight sacks to earn all-league and HM all-state honors. Along with the offer from Oregon, Hart was also offered by Oregon state and Portland State.
"I've been an Oregon fan my whole life so it was an easy decision," Hart said. "It was a dream come true when they offered and I can't wait to get there. I think I'll have a chance to play early there and I'm going to work as hard as I can to do that."
