Signing Day Surprise

Signing Day Surprise

For the last several years Oregon has pulled a surprise on National Letter of Intent signing day and this year is no different. The surprise came when four-star defensive end Torrodney Prevot announced he would become and Oregon Duck.

Torrodney Prevot, from Taylor HS in Houston, Texas had been a verbal commitment to USC for several months but withdrew his commitment on Tuesday according to reports.

Prevot visited Oregon on January 18.

Prevot is 6-4 and weighs in at 205 pounds and according to Scout.com analyst Greg Powers, a force to be reckoned with.

"Extremely quick off the ball," says Powers of Prevot. "He is past offensive linemen in a flash and makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. A pass rushing specialist, he will likely play a hybrid DE/OLB role in college and play it well. He will need to add a lot of muscle and size, but he uses his long arm and hands to keep his distance from blockers, which gives him the space to his quickness and burst. He uses that same length to bat down balls."

Prevot was a US Army All-American in 2013.
