    The number that stands out is the GPA.

    The ALL CIF-SOUTHERN SECTION Div II 2003 link lists him at 6'1" and inch taller and 7 pounds heavier.

    I remember remember something about some schools using a 6.0 scale instead of a 4.0 scale. I would assume that is the case here.

    KSB- I checked the article again and it says 4.0 scale- pretty impressive but he only scored a 960 on his SAT- he will take it again

    I'm thinking that OSU must be recruiting him as a running back. I just can't imagine another offer to a DB who isn't the elite of the elite.

    he has good size for a running back, I like the GPA, sounds like a good prospect.

    Rivals now has video of Oatis and he's impressive on both sides of the ball. Shows good hands coming out of the backfield and although he doesn't have blazing speed he definitely has wheels and runs hard. I really like him as a safety. He comes up hard from his safety spot and doesn't shy away from contact. He was a lot more physical than Adam Myers-White was in his video. Not sure if we're looking at him as a RB or a S but he may be the type of athlete you get on campus and find a spot for him later.

    Is he Pete's #1 man... if so I doubt he leaves CA... interesting offer (if we get Adam MW no real need for more DB's, and we seem to be in on several RB's with a lot of talent), I'm sure the GPA didn't hurt either...

    according to the latest from Rivals- Oatis is claiming that tOSU is recruiting him the hardest and stays in contact with him the most

    He says he most likely will play Defense in college

    In a Ducks Sports Authority (University of Oregon) article dated tomorrow (but available on BSB today), Shawn Oatis had the following to say about the main criterion in determining his college choice:

    Then Oatis named a rather surprising leader:

    It is amazing how much cachet Notre Dame still holds for some kids. ND was far from competetive last year, and will struggle to equal its lack of success this year. It will be a long time before Notre Dame is mentioned with the "best teams".

    LordJeff: That's because Notre Dame consistently lead the nation in SOS...and we all know that's what counts the most. Right NDCHIEF? :roll1:

    disappointing news

    I guess ND still has some juice out in Cali- maybe TY has some connections from his Stanford days? They did pull Terrail Lambert out of the state last year.

    Being on National TV playing USC every year probably doesn't hurt either.

    fwiw, the guy over on the bucknuts message board who has ties with Ryan Williams said that Ryan meet with Oatis last week and now he is very interested in the bucks

    If someone's criteria is to play for a team that is competitive with the best schools over the last three or four years he certainly would not be looking at Notre Dame. If the Irish's little Ty Bubble had burst sooner his first season, he would already be gone. ND = fagetaboutit
