I agree - that part is pretty significant. Oregon doesn't have much in-state talent and they rely on recruiting areas that aren't easily driveable, namely Southern California. Only having 37 officials is tough, considering a class of 24. That means you can't miss on many at all, which will deter Oregon from going after the hotly contested recruits. Don't expect Oregon to go after many Midwest recruits in the next three years.
