Leingang Picks Oregon | VideoScott Westerburg | 12/31/2012
"I went for a visit there and it felt really comfortable there. I really liked the team. The coaches are great and overall it`s just a great tradition there, and I feel that`s the best place that running can take me."
Leingang says he made the choice just a few days after Christmas, and didn`t give either Oregon or Oklahoma State any hints beforehand.
"He was really excited because both coaches knew I was deciding between which one. I wasn`t leaning toward either of them, so he was pretty excited to know. He wasn`t really sure where I was at throughout the whole process, so when I told him the news he was pretty happy."
Leingang will run both track and cross country at Oregon. Classes won`t begin there until September, but he will join the Ducks for a team camp this summer.
