Oregon’s 2013 line class will be something the likes we have never seen before. We have 10 legit D1 prospects at some level with half of them already receiving offers. They average 6-5 280 across the board, and will be a major reason that you will see plenty of scouts in the stands during the 2012 season. Without the big boys up front nothing works so this tells me we are going to have an exciting season to look forward to. We will have some of the best line coaches in the region working our NEI/Barton Tour Combine dates, and we look forward to seeing the Oregon Boys battle all the other athletes from the Northwest. Good luck to these big men as we will be reporting on all of them individually as the year progresses.
