We at NEI would like to thank all of you for the overwhelming support and feedback that has been given since we started less then two months ago. All of the rankings are subject to change as we breakdown individuals based on college potential and where they project at the next level.
Our goal is to provide you with a reliable rankings source that Oregon has been lacking. Here you will find updated information, as well as current stats and all relevant info for each player. We are always looking for individuals we have missed so feel free to let us know who’s deserving.
Rankings are never perfect, but the goal is to help Northwest athletes find a home at the next level. We are very excited and feel that the development of NEI should help put Northwest football on the map in a much bigger way. Thanks again
