  • Via The Oregonian, recruiting analyst Jordan Johnson said this about Washington’s recruiting reach into the state of Oregon:

“Give credit to Washington. Coach Petersen has done some impressive things (up) there," Johnson said. "They're coming down here and grabbing a couple of our top kids, at least they have over the past couple of years. Jacob Kizer is up there right now. A lot of people don't remember him, because he was hurt his senior year, but a West Salem standout. I think it's kind of a slap in the face, and good for them. If they can come down here and do that, credit to the Huskies. I think Marlon is a special, special talent – one of the best D-linemen that has ever come out of the state, comparisons to Ndamukong Suh. They are doing a good job, so yeah, if I was Oregon or Oregon State and you have a four or five-star kid, I would definitely not be too happy about that.”
