Fisher Chooses Oregon

Midwest Regional Manager
Posted Feb 2, 2011

Oregon landed four-star offensive tackle Jake Fisher today, wrestling the Traverse City West (Mich.) product away from in-state schools and Florida.

The snow storm that hit the Midwest has forced Jake Fisher's big announcement back, but he is ready to tell the world that he is an Oregon Duck.

"School's canceled up here as well," Titans head coach Tim Wooer said. "We're trying to get the back up plan in order, but his big presser, we're delaying that for 24 hours, but he is releasing that he's going to Oregon."

The decision was made after Fisher took an official visit to Eugene, but it was finalized this week when his family got fully behind it.

"I didn't know until last night at about 9pm," Wooer admitted. "He talked it over with parents and decided to stick with his decision."

Fisher chose Oregon over Michigan, where he was committed for much of the year, Michigan State, and Florida. Wooer admits he wanted Fisher to be closer to home so the coach could see him play, but left his 6-7, 273-lb tackle to his own decision.

"To be honest, I haven't talked to him much. I tried to stay out of it. I know he was impressed by the facilities. He liked Coach Kelly and the offensive line coach Steve Greatwood. It's a team that is competitive at the national level. They proved that last year."

Wooer knows his star player is headed to a great place.

"I don't think you'll find a hotter team in the country than Oregon."
