Ducks

After finishing as the runner-up for the nation's No. 1, and therefore Washington's No. 1. player last week, the Oregon Ducks are one step closer to landing its first four or five-star talent from the state since 2005.

Four-star offensive lineman Dave Iuli announced his top-five schools via his Twitter account which included Oregon, Oklahoma, USC, Washington and Cal with a commitment looming on Saturday. All but Cal were announced to be in his then-soon-to-be announced top-five in an interview with The Oregonian's  Andrew Nemec.

Wherever he commits, Iuli told Nemec he plans to sign this December during the early signing period and enroll to the university in January 2022. 

Ahead of his decision, five 247Sports cystal ball predictions came in for the Oregon Ducks with confidence intervals ranging from six to eight.

247Sports composite ranking has the 6'4", 320-pound lineman as the nation's No. 9 interior offensive lineman and No. 194 player nationally. 

Brandon Huffman of 247Sports projects Iuli as a Day 3 NFL Draft pick with a player comparison to Wyatt Teller.

"Good athlete with mobility, versatility to play inside or outside," he wrote. "Uses strength to open up holes, gets out in front and paves the way when pulling and can pick up blitzers and adept in pass protection. Somewhat of a tweener and had some injury concerns. A Projects as multi-year Power 5 starter and projects as third day pick."

 

He officially visited the Ducks on June 18th.
