UO recruiting at a glance

Hits: Cameron Colvin, 6-1, 184, wide receiver; Aaron Klovas, 6-6, 311, offensive tackle; Willie Glasper, 5-11, 173, cornerback; Kwame Agyeman, 5-10, 188, safety; David Faaeteete, 6-2, 191, defensive lineman.
Misses: Getting Kyle Williams, a linebacker from Illinois who went to Iowa, and Glencoe High QB Erik Ainge would have vaulted this UO class into the national top seven. Ainge is headed to Tennessee. Also, the Ducks chased several junior college players who went to other schools.
Sleeper: Safety Jerome Boyd, 6-2, 191, from Los Angeles, apparently can run and hit with anybody; Jacob Hucko, 6-7, 285, offensive lineman; Jaison Williams, 6-4, 219, wide receiver; Ryan Phipps, 5-11, 200, linebacker; Ra'Shon Harris, 6-4, 292, defensive lineman.
Strongest areas: Oregon signed seven offensive linemen, and some might be ready to play in 2004. The Ducks also got stronger in the secondary.
Weakest areas: Linebackers are a question mark. Oregon also didn't sign any quarterbacks, punters or kickers, and only added one tight end Ñ Springfield's Ryan Keeling. The Ducks usually develop decent tight ends, however.
