5 Star OT from Oregon Enters Transfer Portal

Clemson was one of the schools who originally offered him. We should get this guy! It won’t help us so much this season, but could help us next year.

I have a feeling that when a 5 star geos into the portal,

that their destination is already known.

BYU.

Because that's the only reason players enter the portal. I'd much rather have a 2 or 3 star offensive line player who's father played with Dabo. On second thought, just give the scholarship to a walk-on.

Exactly

After all there's only one way to win national championships, and if a guy is not All-in right out of high school, then he is without a doubt not a good fit here. Lets move along

True that!!!!!!

Dabo gave 7 schollies to his own kid Drew, and Teammate'kids and other walk ons and I bet one will contribute in any significant way.

Unless he has felony charges pending, which I’m assuming would have made the article, we need to pursue him. Even if you conspiracy theorists are right and he already knows where he is going, give him something to think about. At least show that you are willing to do what it takes to plug some holes.

Our huge Mormon presence would be a big draw I suspect (got that from post below)

If there is one place we absolutely need help it's the Oline. It's even worse with Bockhorst gone.

Brockhorst has no more eligibility. Your point is thus moot.

If you use the portal use it to get someone that's has experience not a developmental situation that no different from getting a kid from. High school

Supposedly he's homesick

and his home is very close to Provo, UT. He's also Mormon so currently all projections have him going to BYU.

It wouldn't help at all this season and if he wasn't playing at Oregon, is he another make believe 5 Star? Players play on the field, not in the magazines.

He's a great kid and will end up having a good career. Nothing wrong with transfers. Kids transfer for all kinds of reasons. Just have to dig and find those diamonds.

You should have learned by now that kids transfer for many reasons. And sometimes the first school just wasn't a good fit for them. Alabama, Ohio State, and Georgia all have transfers starting for them right now. We've been crushed in two straight playoff games by transfer quarterbacks.

Yeah, we're all set next year,
we don't need any 5* 6'7" 330 lb OT's w/ 3 years eligibility on the roster-

Dabo doesn't use the portal....he should, but he doesn't***

He wants to be closer to his home...

Oct 27, 2021, 9:36 AM

so the feeling is he'll land at either Utah or BYU.

These big strong kids who probably haven't spent any significant time away from home, if any, aren't immune from getting home sick.

Yeah I read that he is a BYU lean. Why not go after him? What does BYU have other than proximity?

Many Samoans and other Pacific Islanders like Utah. Many are Mormon. He is probably Mormon. You ever notice that BYU and The University Utah always have a couple Pacific Islanders?
