The Oregon Ducks have managed to secure the No. 3 nationally ranked recruiting class in 2021, but head coach Mario Cristobal is not done yet.

Three-star athlete Jeffrey Bassa from Kearns High School in Salt Lake City, Utah has committed to the Ducks.

"I have chosen to continue my athletic and academic career at [the University of Oregon]," said Bassa on Instagram Live. 

Oregon has recruited him to play boundary safety or nickel cornerback and he plans to enroll early this January. 

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound prospect is rated the No. 7 player in the state of Utah and the No. 44 strong safety nationally in the class of 2021. 

Bassa held 14 offers, nine from Pac-12 schools including Oregon, but named his top-3 on September 8, 2020: Oklahoma State, Oregon and Utah.

Bassa joins an elite group coming in 2021 featuring four-star safety Daymond David, four-star corner Jaylin Davies, and three-start corner Darren Barkins.

He is also the third high schooler from Utah to choose Oregon over the Utah Utes: four-star offensive tackle Kingsley Suamataia and four-star center Jackson Light.
