Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade Madonna quarterback Jerrard Randall had planned to sign with the University of Oregon back on National Signing Day, but the lack of a necessary test score prevented him from doing so. Recently, he got some good news with regards to making that dream a reality.
"I just qualified with the NCAA," Randall said. "I earned the necessary ACT score."
The 6-foot-2, 189-pound quarterback was glad to have finally earned the necessary test score.
"I just had to get through it," Randall said. "It was a lot of hard work."
With regards to his commitment to the Ducks, he intends to follow through on that and sign with Chip Kelly's team.
"I am pretty solid with Oregon," Randall said. "I have been committed for so long, so I plan to sign. I just haven't heard from the coaches in a minute. When they give me a call or send me my letter-of-intent, then I will sign."
Randall provided further clarification about his recent interaction with the staff in Eugene, Oregon.
"The last time I talked to them was the day I gave them my test score, last week some time," Randall said. "I talked to the recruiting coach and he told me he was excited. He said he was going to take it to the administration and then fax my letter-of-intent over. Then they said they have to wait for the NCAA to qualify it, so I had to wait a little longer. Now, I am not sure what is going on."
While Randall plans to sign with Oregon, he has heard from at least one other school that they are willing to bring him in if there is a change of plans.
"I've talked to LSU," Randall said. "I talked with Coach (Billy) Gonzales. He just told me that if Oregon doesn't take me or whatever, I have a spot at LSU."
As a senior, Randall threw for 1,571 yards and nine touchdowns. He has also rushed for 531 yards and nine touchdowns.
