Decision coming soon for Rivals100 RB

Oregon has had Rancho Cucamonga running back Sean Dollars on the top of their board for a long time for obvious reasons. He is fast, strong and agile with great vision and balance. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound athlete has the potential to be a college standout and has the offers to prove it.

This past weekend the Ducks had an opportunity to put their best foot forward when the Rivals100 playmaker made a trip to Eugene to experience their annual spring game.

“On this trip it was very fun, and I was excited to actually watch a game,” said Dollars. “The highlight of the weekend was really talking to the players and chopping it up with the coaches.”

For Oregon football, the weekend was big on many levels. The current team, with its revamped staff led by Mario Cristobal, had the opportunity to showcase itself in front of more than 20,000 Duck fans. At the same time, nearly five dozen recruits were in Autzen Stadium soaking in the action.

Numerous Pro Ducks were also on hand including honorary team captains Tennessee Titan Marcus Mariota and San Francisco 49er DeForest Buckner. LaGarrette Blount, fresh off signing a contract with the Detroit Lions, was in town as well.

The former Duck running back star was another highlight for the nation’s No. 59-ranked overall prospect.

“Meeting LaGarrette Blount was a big deal for me,” confessed Dollars. “I use him on Madden and it’s crazy to take motivation from him.”

The admiration seemed to be reciprocal.

Dollars did not make the trip alone. Accompanying him on the flight to Oregon were both parents.

“They loved the trip,” Dollars confirmed.

In terms of future travels, Dollars has nothing currently planned. One thing he does know is that the end of his recruitment is in sight.

“I will be making a decision soon,” said Dollars.

How soon is soon?

“I’m still trying to figure that out,” he laughed.

Regardless of when it happens, Oregon has every reason to pay close attention to his pending decision.

“They are up there on my list,” said Dollars.
