Ricky Heimuli Oregon Bound: Prospect Surprises With Ducks Signing After Recent PAC-10 Visits

Ricky Heimuli is headed to Oregon, shocking the PAC-10 since he made recent visits to Washington and UCLA.

The Huskies and Bruins were seen by some as front-runners for Heimuli's services, with Oregon and Utah also in the mix.

Heimuli's decision was seen as a major blow to Utah's recruiting efforts.

Just a day ago, the Salt Lake City prospect told ESPNU, "Utah, I like that they are close to home, and very in tune with the LDS community."

Heimuli, a defensive tackle, was ranked by 88th overall in the nation.
