Oregon has received a commitment from a rather large defensive lineman from the state of Florida.
Jordon Scott, a 6-foot-1, 350-pound defensive tackle out of Pinessal Park High School in Largo, Fla., has committed to play for the Ducks, he announced on Twitter.
Scott, who visited Florida State, Indiana and Iowa State, was named all-state in Florida after making 88 tackles with 10 sacks and 29 tackles for loss. He is rated as a three-star prospect by both Rivals.com and 247Sports. The latter rates Scott as the 59th best defensive tackle in the nation and as the 117th best overall prospect in the state of Florida.
Scott, based on his highlight video, is certainly athletic for his size. He could be the perfect fit as the nose tackle in new defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt's 3-4 scheme.
New Oregon coach Willie Taggart offered Scott a scholarship to play at South Florida.
Scott's commitment gives Oregon 13 for the 2017 class, and it bumped the team's rankings on Rivals.com to 47th.
Scott is the second player from the state of Florida to commit to Oregon since Taggart replaced the fired Mark Helfrich as head coach earlier this month.
Taggart convinced three-star athlete Darrian McNeal to decommit from Arizona and commit to the Ducks.
