Three-star offensive lineman Jamaal Burrell (6-5, 275, 5.2) from Compton (Calif.) Dominguez had a very busy January planned, but he decided to stop all of his travel plans as he has decided what school was best for his to continue his football career and his education.
"Jamaal has decided to commit to Oregon," Dominguez line coach Vada Boykins said. "Jamaal felt close to Oregon's offensive line coach Steve Greatwood."
"Jamaal liked Oregon's program a lot and he felt like he fit in with the players and the coaches," Boykins said. "He liked Oregon's facilities a lot. Just last year they renovated a lot of their facilities and it is really nice."
"Jamaal has called all the coaches that recruited him," Boykins said. "He has canceled all his all of his other trips. He is now officially done with recruiting."
Burrell earned first-team all-league and all-area for his senior season performance.
The Ducks get a player who has been compared to former USC offensive lineman Chilo Rachal, who is now making his living on Sunday. He plays the position with a certain nastiness that is found in most successful offensive line prospects.
Not only is Burrell an outstanding prospect with a lot of football upside, but he is already qualified with a 3.2 core GPA and a qualifying SAT score.
Burrell was selected to the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's No. 79 prospect at any position.
