Social Media Buzz: Top recruits, transfer portal players react to weekend visits at Oregon

As spring football got going again for the Oregon Ducks this past week, we saw the activity pick up around campus as the recruiting staff got to work and hosted some highly-rated recruits. There were some top high school prospects on campus, like 5-star CB Bryce West and 4-star S Aaron Flowers, as well as USC transfer WR Gary Bryant.

While it’s always important to get these types of players to Eugene in the fall so that they can experience gamedays at Oregon, head coach Dan Lanning told me on Thursday that it’s just as important, if not more so, to get them on campus to see practices as well.

“Our best pitch in recruiting is when people come and watch that practice and they see the way we work,” Lanning said. “They see how we develop talent and they see how much our guys enjoy practice. So it’s really important for us to take advantage of this beautiful place. Get people here where they can experience it firsthand and see it for themselves.”

After the weekend was over, a lot of those players took to social media to reflect on their visit,
