"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
Heck yeah wanted this dude since first time i saw his video..i feel ya..hes my number one running back unless bo scar...ever entertains coming for visit and falls head over heals in love with michigan
Go blue.....beat ohio.....
Hell of an athlete, but from his latest comments I would be surprised if he doesn't end up a duck.
If he goes with the ducks I don't want a running back in this class unless its the hybrid McCaffery
Our coaches won't concede Ballage to the Ducks.
They identified him first. They offered him first. They showed the most faith in him.
And besides, let's wait and see how Oregon performs under Mark Helfrich.

Good point frank
Yeah I think this year will be interesting to see how Oregon performs on the field. They've been known of late to have a great offense and their players take advantage of that and can showcase their speed, but they could have some growing pains under their new head coach.
Oregon isn't out-of-the-woods yet with the NCAA either!
Note: that's the same time Fournette put up this weekend

Came here to post that too. I wonder how much hype Ballage would get if he played in the south.
I really think if he were from any other area of the country, he'd be a consensus top-100 guy. I really think his only problem is a lack of exposure.
Well ESPN would have given him a sixth star by now.
I believe they also are looking at him on Defense or as an ATH that will likely end up on D.
That could have an impact.
Texted with Kalen tonight, who said he ran a 10.64 later that same day.
247 ratings need updated:
Fournette runs 10.68 at 215lbs and is listed as Speed 9 Size 10
Ballage runs 10.64 at 225lbs and is listed as Speed 7 Size 9
Sounds like some Southern Bias! J/k
No, no. It's because at RB, it's better to be slower so you can more easily stay behind your blockers. It's also better to be smaller so that you can more easily hide behind said blockers. 8^D
Ballage has been the #1 RB I've wanted for months. He reminds me very much of Ty Isaac, who we lost to USC, but he's faster and runs less upright. Kid has Heisman Trophy candidate written all over him (see Eddie George).
I don't think our coaches concede much to anyone, anytime, or anywhere that is why they are very successful at getting all of the top talent we are growing accustomed to. However, it's still the kids preference in schools and Oregon seems to have the edge there. I just hope they can get him on campus and let Hokemania run wild.
