Washington actually commented to the media that he thinks he'll be playing for Meyer, not Fickell. Seems a pretty low class thing to say, IMO.
And if the Meyer rumors turn out to be true and its announced soon, I wonder if that sways guys like Stanford. Meyer's receivers have done pretty well in the NFL. Of course, maybe he just doesn't want to stay close to home and loves the Oregon program. Can't say that I'd blame him for that.
But given the choice between getting a top tier defensive end and a top tier receiver, I'll take the end every time.
