Q&A: Lavon Bunkley-Shelton

April 12, 2018

Although he's a highly-rated recruit in the 2020 class, Lavon Bunkley-Shelton‍ hasn't been shy about his feelings for Oregon.

The Ducks have made Southern California a priority and that effort is beginning to pay off with class of 2019 and 2020 targets.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound athlete has nearly a dozen offers already, including one from Oregon. Below, as we've seen before, he talks very highly about Oregon and its coaching staff.

Hello Lavon, have you talked with Oregon staff recently?

Yes last night and this morning

What coach(s) how much interest in Ducks do you have?

Very high on the Ducks Oregon is my Dream School been a fan since Jeremiah Masoli n Darren ThomasCoach Heyward and Coach Donte

Great former ducks, do you have plans to visit Eugene?

I will be in attendance for the Spring Game 4/21 I can’t wait!! Always wanted to visit the Autzen Zoo.

My uncle Fin “James Finley” played for Oregon, so I heard some great stories of the fans in Eugene

That is awesome; James Finley was a sweet WR for the Ducks!

I know right! I am finally going to see Oregon in person. Lol I still have his game cleats from Oregon.

Did you play for the Pasadena Ducks youth team?

I grew up playing for the IE Ducks. We won Back2Back National Championships in AYF.

Is that the team Keyon Ware-Hudson played on?

I was on the team in 7th grade with Keyon, Max Williams, JT Daniels, and Bru McCoy.

That is a loaded youth team! Holy crap, did you ever lose?

Not one game lol.

Does not surprise me at all, how many offers do you currently have, who is recruiting you the hardest?

I currently have nine offers. I would say Oregon, Utah, UA, and ASU have been recruiting me the most. As of late, Florida has been showing love too.

What your current height/weight?

Currently I am 6-foot, 172-pounds.

What is James up to now days?

Funny you should ask, I just left working out with Fin at the park. He is my personal WR coach. I hear he is the new WR Coach at Mater Dei HS.

Nice that is very cool, does he talk about Oregon?

Yea we talk about Oregon often. I am trying to get him to come with me for the Spring Game.

That would be great; whom are you going to spring game with?

My parents and my lil Bro. Hopefully Fin can come too.

Do you play other sports?

Yea I also run track.

Who is your main coach recruiting you, Coach Johnson?

Coach Heyward and Coach Donte.

My Big Bro Thomas Graham is by far the biggest recruiter though. I just saw him Monday at Athletic Republic in the Rancho Cucamonga he is awesome.
