Balducci Stays In-State
Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic defensive end Alex Balducci was ready for the process to be over, so he made a call to the Oregon coaching staff. "I committed to Oregon yesterday" said Balducci. "I was under a lot of stress. It came down to Oregon or Washington, and I made a decision." Balducci chose Oregon over offers from Arizona State, Boise State, California, Colorado, Oregon State, Utah and Washington. The 6'3" 245lbs junior talked about what separated Oregon from the rest. "I've been up to Oregon so many times, I like everything about Oregon," said Balducci. "I like the structure and support, it is almost impossible to fail academically." "The facilities are great there," said Balducci. "I really felt the love from the coaches. Coach Azzinaro has talked to me a lot about what I can be in the future." Balducci says that Oregon plans on allowing him to come in and try out three positions on the defensive line. The Ducks think he could play defensive end, defensive tackle and nose guard. There is a ton of relief in the decision," said Balducci. "It was getting out of hand, I'm glad that it is over. Now I am just going to focus on Central Catholic football."
