USC Football Recruiting: Nico Falah to Get Visit from Oregon Ducks' Chip Kelly


Nico Falah has been committed to USC for 187 days and counting, but with Signing Day just 23 days away, it’ll be interesting to see if he can make it to day No. 210. The 6-foot-4 offensive tackle has been considered to be a ‘soft verbal’ of late, with Steve Sarkisian’s Washington Huskies pushing hard for his services.

But with time running out in the recruiting season, Oregon is starting to make another serious push for Falah, as head coach Chip Kelly will visit Falah in his Bellflower home, according to Falah himself on Twitter.

Before Falah committed to USC in July, he tweeted ‘Win the Day’, the phrase that is part of a Chip Kelly mantra that wound up as part of Nike’s branding for Oregon Ducks athletics. He officially visited Oregon in Eugene back on November 16th, the week the Ducks lost to the Stanford Cardinal.

After Falah gets in-home an visit from Oregon tonight, he and family will need to keep the house in tip-top shape, as according to Blair Angulo of ESPN, Kelly won’t be the only visitor this week.

 

Falah is expected to visit USC this weekend with the rest of the fall-enrolling Trojan commits for the Class of 2013. Also visiting is Eddie Vanderdoes, who is still considering the Trojans in addition to Notre Dame, Washington and UCLA.

    “Win The Day” did not come from Nike. It is not Nike-Branded. It originally came from Chip Kelly, which Nike/Oregon use when creating merchandise.

      Gotcha. Thanks, Alphonse. It’s one of those traditional chicken vs. the egg mishaps. Nike’s done a fantastic job marketing the UO-born ideas and making it part of a full-on branding movement.
