As reported by ESPN.com's Brandon P. Oliver earlier today, the Oregon Ducks have received a verbal commitment from Alex Redmond, a 3-star offensive lineman out of Los Alamitos, CA.
Redmond becomes the eighth recruit to commit to the Ducks in the 2013 class. He is ranked as the No. 15 OL in the country by Scout.com.
Redmond is 6'4", 290 lbs. and had a terrific performance at the Los Angeles Nike Camp in April. It appears that his stock rose dramatically with Oregon after that.
This is another Oregon recruit with his head on straight. Here's a quote from Scout.com that sums up Redmond:
“I really wanted to commit during the summer and now I can focus on my senior
season without any distractions. I’ll be coming in at guard and I’m comfortable
there. Our offense at Los Al is actually similar, we run a spread type so I
think I’ll fit in really well. My whole family is pumped up too, especially my
dad. Oregon was his favorite school that we visited so this is really exciting for the whole family as well."
Alex Redmond is the second offensive lineman to commit in the 2013 Oregon class. 4-star Evan Voeller from West Linn, OR, is the other.
