08:26 AM ET 02.03 | For Arizona native Tyler Johnstone, a quick trip to Oregon's locker room was all it took. "You know how the only thing that smells worse than a football locker room after a game is a hockey locker room?" Johnstone said. "Well, Oregon's didn't smell whatsoever. Each locker has these vents that blow air up from the bottom and sucks the air out from the top so nothing stays wet or smells. It's incredible." The state's top high school athletes gathered at Majerle's Sports Grill Wednesday morning to sign their national letters-of-intent. Many pledged allegiance to Arizona State or the University of Arizona. But it's Oregon that left the largest footprint. The Ducks, who have three Arizona products on their roster, signed three of the state's best high school players: Johnstone, Mesa Mountain View defensive tackle Sam Kamp and Scottsdale Chaparral tackle Andre Yruretaguyena.

It wasn't. He also toured the Oregon cheerleaders' facility.

Yes they do. Don't they play LSU in Dallas though? That should be a good one.
