Oregon's 2018 recruiting class, ranked No. 5 in the nation by Rivals.com, is long on talent and beef.
The Ducks will use a more downhill power running offense under coach Willie Taggart and co-offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Mario Cristobal than in the past and that requires size and strength. It appears that plenty is on the way.
The class includes three offensive linemen that each weigh more than 330 pounds. To put that into perspective, the current Ducks' offensive line has just one player that weighs more than 325 and that's junior college transfer, George Moore.
The projected starting offensive line averages about 308 pounds across with a high of 317 in the form of senior Tyrell Crosby.
Oregon on Tuesday received a commitment from one of the centerpieces of this class, four-star guard Steven Jones out of Temecula, Calif. The No. 7-rated guard in the nation checks in at 6-foot-5 and 335 pounds.
Christopher Randazzo, a three-star recruit from Chino, Calif., is 6-5, 340.
Then theres three-star guard Justin Johnson out of Philadelphia, Penn., who is 6-7 and 342 pounds.
All three still must develop, shed baby fat, add muscle and strength and then perform on the field. But clearly the Ducks are going to start looking much larger along the offensive line in years to come under Taggart.
