Grasu evaluates Oregon visit

It is almost always a special occasion for a high school kid to make his first official visit during the recruiting cycle and for Oregon verbal commit, Hroniss Grasu, this weekend a special one for many reasons. Not only did he have a chance to officially visit his school of choice, but he got to do so with his best friend and his family. Duck Sports Authority caught up with the Oregon commit to see where things stand with him after his official visit to Eugene.

"It is so awesome here. It is even better than I remember it. Actually seeing the way the team and the coaches prepare for the game and running out there with the guys is something I will never forget."
From the word go, Grasu has been solidly committed to Chip Kelly and the Ducks and this weekend did nothing to change that.

"I am all Duck and so is BB (Bryan Bennett). This is where we want to be. It was great to be able to see a game, especially a night game and see this place rocking. Even though it was a blowout, the crowd was still in it until the end and I had my eye on the game the whole time." (Grasu's brother is the kicker for WSU)
When asked his thoughts about the game, Grasu had this to say.

"It was cool to see them prepare for a game like that. Even though they blew out a top 10 team last week, they didn't take Washington State lightly and they went out and handled their business. I love the way their line played and the running backs and wide receivers are getting better each game. Ed Dickson is a warrior out there. It was cool to be able to meet him on Saturday."

Grasu's family made the trek up to Eugene in order to catch two of their sons in the Pac-10 battle. One was on the losing end of the game and the other got to watch his future team continue to roll.

"They loved it too. They were happy to see my brother play and the whole family wanted to see where I would be spending the next few years of my life. Overall, I think it's fair to say everyone had a great time, except maybe my brother (laughing). I kind of felt bad for him out there."
