The good, the bad and the ugly.
The Oregon Ducks and Dan Lanning are experiencing all of the recruiting trail ups and downs in the lead-in to Wednesday’s early signing period.
Projected to lose both five-star quarterback Dante Moore (UCLA?) and All-American cornerback Caleb Presley (Washington?), Oregon is in need of some good news.
And it appears to be on the way.
On Sunday morning multiple Oregon coaches and support staff members have tweeted thinly-veiled hints that new commitments are coming.
Multiple, in fact.
So, who could they be?
Well, Oregon picked up one (public) commitment Sunday morning when former Alabama defensive back Khyree Jackson chose Oregon over Kentucky.
In the past two seasons, Jackson has played in 21 of Alabama’s games, including one start this fall.
But the most likely new high school addition is clearly Cy Ranch (Texas) four-star defensive lineman Ashton Porter, an Under Armour All-American Game selection.
The 6-foot-3, 255-pound versatile defender accumulated more than 30 scholarship offers during the recruiting process, highlighted by Miami, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, TCU Tennessee and many others.
Already sky-high on the Ducks, Porter took a return trip to Eugene this weekend with the expectation that a commitment could be imminent.
Given that the staff is celebrating this weekend’s additions, Porter is definitely a player to watch for Oregon.
