Nico Falah had all but written off Oregon after its coaching staff told the USC pledge earlier this season he could not visit if still committed to the Trojans, but that stance has changed.
According to Falah, he talked with Oregon offensive line coach Steve Greatwood on Wednesday and it was decided that the four-star offensive tackle could now visit in two weekends for the Stanford matchup.

"I'm still committed to SC but they called yesterday and they still want me to visit," Falah said. "It's kind of random, totally a surprise.
"I liked Oregon a lot, but when they said I had to de-commit to take the visit they were pretty much out of the picture. I didn't want to de-commit just for a visit. They called yesterday, so they're back in it.
"They just called me and their O-line coach said they were watching film on me, he said he likes me a lot and he wants to pursue me again and try to get me to open up and go to Oregon."
Falah, a 6-foot-4, 267-pound four-star from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco, made it no secret that he wanted to visit Oregon for some time, even though he's been committed to the Trojans since July.
But after looking at official visit dates for the fall, Falah said he was informed by the Oregon coaching staff he would have to back off his USC pledge to make it to Eugene.
Falah said it is unlikely he will flip from his commitment, but he's at least interested enough to take a trip.
"It's going to be a good experience for me," Falah said. "I've never been to a school out of state so far. I've only been to the California schools. It's going to be pretty exciting for me to get the Oregon experience.
"I just want to get up there. Oregon is an option for me. As of now I'm all SC and I don't think that's going to change either."
