May 30, 2012
As May comes to an end, recruiting will begin to pick up steam as young men travel to multiple camps and make unofficial visits to their favorite programs. Leading up to the summer cap season for football, Duck Sports Authority spent the month of May looking in depth at each position. During that stretch we looked at those with a listed offer in the Rivals database as well as a few off the radar prospects and some other intriguing athletes who have some measured interest in the Oregon program.

It is a sign of just how far the Ducks program has ascended over the past few years that the coaches have been very selective in their early offers.

Today, Duck Sports Authority looks back at the earlier articles and gives a brief summary of each position on the interior defense.

Defensive Tackle:

Jaynard Bostwick: Offered, Medium Interest

Summary: Physically imposing at 6-4, 291 pounds, Bostwick has all the tools to be a great defensive tackle where ever he chooses. Bostwick is ranked as the 8th best defensive tackle and 85th best overall player in the nation by Rivals.

DSA Odds: Low Distance may be the biggest factor for Bostwick.

Scott Pagano: Offered, Medium Interest

Summary: Pagano has very good hands and uses them to engage linemen very well. He knows how to use his hands and arms to shed the block when needed and make a play.

DSA Odds: Low Very Low Pagano has recently said that the Ducks are no longer in his top 10.

Doug Brenner: Not Offered, Medium Interest

Summary: Brenner is intriguing as a local kid from top in-state high school, Jesuit. A gifted all-around athlete Brenner has a great frame for playing defensive line and is incredibly strong.

DSA Odds: Good If Oregon were to offer Brenner soon, there is a good chance he would jump at the chance to play for Oregon.

Ma'ataua Brown: Not Offered, Interest Unknown

Summary: Brown is one of those physical specimens that make many college football fans drool over. Listed at 6-5 and 309 pounds in his junior college football media guide, Brown is leaner than you would expect.
