Torrodney Prevot talks Oregon offer

When it comes to scholarship offers, four-star defensive end Torrodney Prevot (Houston/Alief Taylor) has heard from several heavyweights. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound junior added another big-name program to his list on Thursday.

Prevot added an offer from Oregon on Thursday and is now at 22 offers. Prevot said the Ducks -- popular to recruits for their style of play as well as their unorthodox-yet-drawing uniforms -- are definitely a program that he is interested in.

Prevot was offered by Oregon linebackers coach Don Pellum, who was in town for a visit. Little was said when the two connected.

“We had talked before,” Prevot said. “As soon as he shook hands, he offered. We didn’t even have to say anything. Oregon is a top school for me. Coach Pellum and I have already set up an official visit.”

Prevot, thought of as both a defensive end and outside linebacker, said Oregon is interested in him playing the outside backer spot. That official visit, Prevot said, is scheduled for Oct. 5.

Prevot will be near the Oregon campus in July, as he has been invited to participate in the 2012 The Opening, a four-day training and development camp featuring some of the nation’s elite players. In addition to the Oregon offer, he has offers from LSU, USC, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and others, including in-state schools Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, SMU and Houston.

Prevot is ranked No. 21 among defensive ends nationwide. He is No. 38 among all players in Texas.
