The Oregon Ducks will own the Pac-12 on Signing Day
We’re less than 24 hours away from National Signing Day, and the Oregon Ducks currently have 25 commits, the nation’s No. 7 ranked recruiting class overall on Rivals.
What Oregon coach Mario Cristobal has been able to do in short time is rare. He has already surpassed his 22 signees and three commitments from 2018, which was UO’s best in school history. The #M19ghtOregon class is now on pace to be the highest-ranked class, and Oregon’s first in the Top 10 of the 247Sports team rankings.
Oregon’s 2019 class includes the No. 1 high school and junior college prospect overall and the highest-rated linebacker in program history. Let’s take a look at some of Oregon’s future flock.
5* DE Kayvon Thibodeaux
Kayvon Thibodeaux became the highest-rated prospect ever to commit to the Oregon Ducks on Dec. 15.
The 6-foot-5, 234 pound defensive end chose Mario Cristobal and the Ducks over Alabama, Florida and Florida State. He’s an elite pass-rusher with scary speed and agility, not to mention the top-rated high school player in the country.
Thibodeaux is already enrolled in classes and shared a photo of his first day at Oregon last month. He hopes to study journalism at UO.
4* JC OL Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu
Just last week, Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu was named the No. 1 junior college prospect in the country by college recruiting ranking site, JCGridiron.com.
The 6-foot-7, 345-pound offensive lineman chose the Ducks over Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Texas A&M and USC, to name a few.
Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu enrolled early and can be seen around campus for spring football.
4* WR Mycah Pittman
The four-star wide receiver chose Oregon in July over 35 offers, which included Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame and more.
Pittman, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound pass-catcher out of Calabas High School, had 62 receptions, 773 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns in his senior season.
He is the third-highest rated wide receiver to ever sign with the Ducks and one Cristobal called "an explosive and strong route runner.”
4* All-Purpose back Sean Dollars
247 Sports compost rankings name Sean Dollars as the nation's No. 2 all-purpose back.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder chose Oregon over offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Florida and Florida State amongst others in May.
Dollars is the ninth highest-ranked running back prospect to ever sign with Oregon.
4* TE Patrick Herbert
Four-star tight end Patrick Herbert, younger brother of Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert, signed a letter of intent with the Ducks in December.
The 6-foot-5, 225-pound physical receiver will feel right at home in Oregon. He chose UO over California, Nebraska, Florida and Oregon State among others.
Herbert is the fourth highest-ranked tight end prospect to ever sign with Oregon.
4* Inside LB Mase Funa
6-foot-2, 245 pound defensive prospect Mase Funa committed to the Ducks in April over BYU, California, Florida State, Nebraska and more.
Funa was nearly five-star recruit status before a torn ACL sidelined him for his senior year.
He is the highest-rated linebacker pledge in the history of Oregon football.
3* S Trikweze Bridges
Three-star Safety Trikweze Bridges signed a letter of intent with Oregon in July after multiple visits to the UO campus.
Bridges, a 6-foot-3, 185 pound defensive back, is a lengthy, sinewy athlete who could see the field sooner than later following Ugo Amadi’s graduation.
He is rated as the nation's No. 221 prospect overall and the No.18 safety by Rivals.
4* WR Josh Delgado
Four-star wideout Josh Delgado chose Oregon over offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Arkansas and Minnesota. He verbally committed in June on a visit.
Delgado, a former St. John Bosco High School star in California, continued his prep career at the IMG Academy.
He could be catching passes from senior quarterback Justin Herbert as early as next season, but competition in the 2019 class will be steep.
4/3* wide receiver Lance Wilhoite
The 6-2, 185-pound wide receiver signed with the Ducks on June 22, one week after his official visit to Oregon.
Despite being out for most of his senior year with injuries, Wilhoite was named to the Tennessee Williamson Country All-County Team.
He chose Oregon over Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and others.
4* OLB Ge’Mon Eaford
Under Armour All-American Ge’Mon Eaford chose Oregon over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, George, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State and others in December.
He is rated the No. 10 outside linebacker and has already enrolled in Oregon for winter term.
