With two visits already taken, it’s understandable that Marlon Brisco is beginning to get a clearer picture of where he thinks he might end up playing his college ball.
After visiting Washington State earlier this month, the Inglewood (Calif.) Morningside defensive end visited Oregon over the weekend.
Brisco says he saw something at Oregon that he didn’t get to see at Washington State.
“At Oregon, I got to watch them practice,” Brisco explained. “I got to see the campus and what a regular day is all about there. I didn’t get to see that at Washington State because they had the game going on.”
That could make a big difference in which team eventually lands Brisco.
“I think the Oregon visit gave me a good idea of what it’s going to be like every day. You know we went out to practice and I was seeing them run sprints and do some pass rush moves, and I was kind of telling myself ‘This is how it could be.’”
Oregon is now the favorite for Brisco and could pick up a commitment at anytime from the 6-foot-4, 225-pound four-star defensive end who finished his senior season with 20 sacks.
“I told the coaches that I would be thinking about committing. I’m going to be talking to my mom and dad a little bit over the next few days or weeks. If I decide anything, the coaches said to just call them up. They gave me the direct line in to Coach (Mike) Belotti to make sure I called him if I wanted to commit.”
Brisco says that his current plans still include an official visit to Arizona on Dec. 7, but he doubts that he’ll make it until Jan. 25 to visit Fresno State before making a commitment to one school or another.
Oregon looks like the team to beat.
