On Friday, national powerhouse program St. John Bosco (California) defeated back-to-back Oregon 6A state champion Central Catholic 49-0 at Autzen Stadium.

Given that Oregon Ducks host Eastern Washington in their home opener Saturday, many St. John Bosco prospects are sticking around for an unofficial visit.

The headliners of that visitor list are a pair of five-star prospects - edge-rusher Matayo Uiagalelei (2023) and safety Peyton Woodyard (2024).

Uiagalelei is a 6-foot-5, 265-pound defender who is rated the nation's No. 8 overall prospect and No. 2 edge-rusher.

He has taken official visits to Ohio State, Oregon and USC, all of which are considered major contenders in his recruitment.

As for Woodyard, the 6-foot-2, 188-pound defensive back is rated the nation's No. 24 overall prospect and No. 2 safety, highlighting his similarity to his cousin, recent NFL Draft first-round pick Kyle Hamilton (Notre Dame; Baltimore Ravens).

Woodyard was scheduled to meet with Oregon coaches early Saturday and will stick around Sunday for a closer look at the program.

He holds offers from more than 30 programs, highlighted by Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M and USC. 

Still, his recruitment remains wide open early in the process. 

Oregon's 2023 recruiting class is ranked No. 13 nationally and No. 1 in the Pac-12 with an all-timer headliner - five-star quarterback Dante Moore, who is arguably the top prospect in the country.
