The news keeps getting better for Plant DB Eric Dungy.

First Florida State offered. Now Oregon, the Pac-10 champ, has followed suit.

The 6-foot-2, 180-pound standout took an official visit to FSU over the weekend and will trip to Oregon next weekend.

FSU previously offered Dungy, the son of legendary NFL coach Tony Dungy, a grayshirt, meaning he wouldn’t enroll there until January 2011 should he pick that school. But during his official visit, Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher said there was still a possibility Dungy could be part of the 2010 class.

“He said he couldn’t make any promises, but that something could happen,” Dungy said. “He said there’s a chance, but he didn’t want to guarantee it; he couldn’t do that right now.”

FSU is “definitely” in the mix, Dungy said.

“It was my first official visit and it was a good visit,” Dungy said. “It went fine.”

Dungy initially was expected to visit New Mexico, but when FSU jumped into the picture he changed his plans. Now, he’s preparing for a trip to Oregon, which offered him a scholarship last week.

“It was pretty cool -- a West coast program knowing about me down in Tampa,” Dungy said.

As of today, Dungy has no leader.

“After the Oregon visit, I might be closer to having a list,” he said.
