Barton Elite Event Video: OREGON Part 3 -LB/DB
In Part 3 of our Oregon series we take a look at the Linebackers and Defensive Backs and what they will provide moving forward. James Banks highlights a linebacker group as the #2 overall recruit in Oregon at that position. There are also three sophomores who project in the top five state wide for the class of 2014 at backer.
Each week we have had more and more of the top athletes from both Oregon and Washington coming out to compete. There are very few of the state’s best not in attendance, and we expect an additional increase once the Winter sports season ends.
The camp and combine tour is just around the corner, and we look forward to seeing the remainder of Oregon’s top athletes coming out in the coming weeks…Check the Video, as we will have segment 4 ready to go with receivers and Te’s tomorrow

Jake Biglow (5-11 210 So. Tigard) All league on both sides of the ball as a sophomore with multiple Td games from his Tigh End position. Moves exceptionally well for a big man, and should be considered one of the top dual threats Sophs in Oregon. Projects as a backer due to height.

Joe Lobbato (6-2 205 So. Tigard) Extremely big upside, with natural football ability.Good sized kid that will just get better in Tigard’s system. Should play big role this season on very talented Tigard team..
Jimbo Davis (5-11 165 Jr. Mt Si ,WA) Super talented kid that had the best lock down coverage of the day. Jimbo’s sneaky good, and receivers have a hard time losing him. All league kid from a year ago that started on both sides of the ball as an underclassmen. Should be

Maleke Nathman (5-10 175 So. Southridge) Multiple varsity starts on both sides of the ball this past season. One of three very talented RB’s on Southridge team coming back, so expect to see him starting as a DB, but still getting carries offensively… Will team with the “Human Ping Pong Ball” Devin Martinez, and Pruit to form a deadly trio of RB’s.
Kelsie Turmer (5-9 165 Jr. Jefferson) Started as a DB in 2011, did a good job on receivers but was very critical of himself. Super quick kid with good instincts, should be one of the better defensive backs in the PIL.
