In the last two days, there has been major moves made in Oregon football recruiting that impacts next season and beyond. Does the good outweigh the bad? I don’t think so, but you decide.
GOOD: Two future offensive weapons demonstrate devotion and enthusiasm.
2019 four-star wide receiver plans to enroll early and get to work: Mycah Pittman, four-star recruit by 247 sports, plans on enrolling early at Oregon and going through football spring drills with hopes to compete as soon as possible at the college level.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound receiver chose Oregon in July over offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, Texas A&M, USC and Washington.
2021 prospect, nation’s No. 2 running back, re-commits to Oregon: After decomitting in September, Seven McGee, has decided to commit again to the Ducks.https://twitter.com/McgeeSeven/status/1067298553444356097
The 5-foot-9, 175-pound athlete is rated by 247Sports as the No. 2 running back and No. 51 overall prospect in the 2021 class. He has been recruited to Oregon as a running back but has desires to also play in the slot.
BAD: Two four-star defensive athletes decommit from Oregon in two days.
2019 four-star defensive back Jeremiah Criddell decommits from Oregon: The Mater Dei High School defensive back announced he was opening up his recruiting process on Twitter on Wednesday. The 6-foot, 188-pound prospect was the highest-rated safety to commit to Oregon in program history, ranked by ESPN as nation's No. 4 athlete.
2019 four-star linebacker Jared Casey decommits from Oregon: The 6-foot-2, 225-pound outside linebacker is from Louisville, Kentucky. According to Rivals, Casey decommited from Oregon after an in-home visit with Kentucky Wildcats coaches.
What this means: Oregon’s 2019 recruiting class currently has 20 commits and dropped three spots to No. 7 in the 247Sports Composite rankings.
The Ducks have three 2019 defensive back commits; three-star safety Lanett Trikweze Bridges, four-star cornerback Elijah Blades and four-star cornerback Mykael Wright.
At linebacker, Oregon has two 2019 commits; Under Armour All-American Ge'Mon Eaford and four-star Mase Funa, the highest-rated linebacker commit in UO history.
Will Oregon finish with a top 10 recruiting class? Stay tuned, as college football's early signing period is three weeks away! Recruits can finalize national letters of intent from Dec. 19-21 or wait until the traditional signing day on Feb. 6.
