Uzoma schedules Oregon trip

Randy Uzoma, who committed to Nevada in late August, was recently offered by Oregon and the Canoga Park, Calif., wide receiver has scheduled his first official visit with the Ducks.
Uzoma, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect, will visit Eugene the weekend of Oct. 29 when Oregon hosts Washington State.
It will be the first time Uzoma has seen a college football game in person and Canoga Park offensive coordinator Kevin Carlsen said the wide receiver standout is excited about what he's going to see.
"He's excited to go visit," Carlsen said. "This is his first college or professional game he's ever been to. It's going to be at Oregon, at Autzen (Stadium), so you can imagine how his first game is going to be.
"He could make a decision up there, it's possible, but he definitely will figure it out later. He's not going to wait until February to make his decision but he wants to see a couple schools, at least two or three, but he might take all five visits. He wants to see what it's like and we want him to enjoy the process. He's so excited and we just want him to enjoy it."
Uzoma will also take his official visit to Nevada the first weekend of December as many other Pac-12 schools are gaining interest in him.
Washington has been getting more involved - although the Huskies will probably hold off on an offer for the time being - and Utah is also showing more interest. Oregon State and UCLA are also in the mix.
The Huskies had considered offering Uzoma last week but since they already have a few wide receiver commits in their 2012 recruiting class they're not planning to offer him just yet.
"They're holding off a little bit," Carlsen said. "They really like Randy but they have three committed receivers already.
"They're saying they're still going to recruit Randy because if something goes on with one of these receivers they're going to bring him right in.
"The only reason they haven't offered him is the fact that they got three early commits for wide outs. They're still calling every week, they're still recruiting him hard but they have three committed guys already."
