San Antonio (Texas) Roosevelt Rivals250 defensive back Arrion Springs committed to the Oregon Ducks in July on ESPN. Deciding between Texas and Oregon, he was confident of his decision when he placed the hat on his head.
"I knew I wanted to be a Duck ever since I got the offer," Springs said to Ducks Sports Authority shortly after his decision. "That is all I have been waiting on. I've been talking to Coach (Mark) Helfrich for a long time now. When I got offered it was pretty much official on my end, but I tried to just keep an open mind until decision time."
In late August, Springs took his official visit to Eugene as the Ducks kicked off the 2013 season at home against Nicholls State. Nothing changed, he was sold. Oregon was his home.
However, he did decide to take a couple of official visits. He took a trip to Talahassee to see Florida State host Miami, and another to Norman to see Oklahoma take on Iowa State.
"After a couple of weeks when I came back from Oregon I was watching all the games on TV, and I said I would rather see these in person and I think I can," Springs said.
A visit to LSU could also be in the works, and this weekend a Big 12 visit is on the schedule.
"I think I'm supposed to go to the Texas and Baylor game, but I think that's an unofficial though," Springs said. "I'm not sure though."
While he is taking visits, he has continued to communicate with Oregon coaches, and he says there is nothing for Oregon to worry about.
"I'm still 100-percent committed to Oregon," Springs said. "I'm just taking the visits just because they were there."
Springs was selected as an Under Armour All-American and is currently ranked No. 227 in the 2014 Rivals250.
