Manley Yes, but Oregon Likes Him, Too

Former All-Pro defensive end Dexter Manley, left, made as much news off the field as he did on it, serving time and acknowledging before a Senate committee that he made it through school despite being illiterate. He appears to have things turned around and is working as a director of a drug rehabilitation program in Washington D.C. His son, Dexter Manley II, has been one of the most-sought recruits this year, and he has decided to attend Oregon. Manley, a defensive end from Santa Monica College, is described by coach Robert Taylor as "not really blockable." Despite offers from several top colleges, Manley choose Oregon because it plays in the pass-happy Pacific 10. "That's sack central for me," he said.
