Plano West Bryce Cottrell has a double-digit offer list, but only two offers from inside the state…
Cottrell Speaks With Oregon "Weekly"
About how long ago did you receive that offer?
"A month ago."
Since the recruiting process started for you, what kind of contact have you had with Oregon?
"I talk to (linebackers) coach (Don) Pellum on a weekly basis."
Did you attend the Oregon camp in June?
How would you describe your experience while in Oregon?
"It was a very nice experience. I met a bunch of players there."
Did you get to take a tour of campus and the facilities while you were in Eugene?
"Yeah...they're the best, what else is there to talk about. They have up-to-date everything."
Has coach Pellum discussed with you the possibility of getting you out for an official visit during the season?
"Yeah, but I haven't scheduled one yet."
What would you say your overall interest is in Oregon right now?
"I'm very interested in Oregon, as long as they don't get put on probation or anything, you know?"
With some of the negative attention that they've been receiving, is that a big factor for you?
"It's not really affecting me; I'm very interested in Oregon."
How would you describe yourself as a player?
"Big and physical."
Have the Oregon coaches specified the position which they're looking at you at?
"Linebacker...they said outside linebacker, but they blitz the linebackers a lot!"
Is there a guy at the collegiate level that you try to pattern your game after at all?
"I'd say DeMarcus Ware."
What are you looking for in a program?
"Just a place to call home and good academics. That's about it."
Is distance a factor for you at all?
"I'm interested in going wherever makes me happy."
Have you given any thought as to what you might want to study when you get to college?
What are some of the offers that you currently hold right now?
"Arkansas, Boston College, Arizona, Arizona State, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt...I don't know off the top of my head. There is a lot."
Do you have a top five or a favorites list or a group of schools that is standing out to you at this point?
"No, I haven't narrowed it down yet."
Do you have a timetable for when you plan on narrowing it down?
As far as camps and unofficial visits go, where have you been and where do you plan on going this summer?
"I've been to Baylor, I'm going to Arkansas on the 16th, I've been to Ole Miss, SMU and a couple others...and USC."
Do you have a timetable set for when you would like to have a decision made?
"I'd like to decide in October or November."
