Central Catholic defensive end Alex Balducci has verbally committed to Oregon, rivals.com announced today. The 6-4, 270 lb. defensive end is the number two-rated recruit in the state.
A U.S. Army All-American who sported eight offers, incuding Washington, Boise State and Oregon State, Balducci is listed at 4.85 in the 40 with a 265-lb. bench press. He has room to grow and get stronger.
The Ram senior visited Oregon last December during the Arizona game, an unofficial visit.
Balducci may be able to move inside to defensive tackle, although he plays outside at Central Catholic. Rivals rates him a four-star prospect, 178th in the country.
