Ducks Receive Another Signing Day Present

Oregon Football has made a habit of gaining unexpected commitments from highly recruited prospects on National Signing Day.  In 2010, the quiet and humble defensive tackle Ricky Heimuli, who played his recruiting cycle extremely close to the vest, sent his letter of intent to Eugene.  In 2011, heralded prospect DeAnthony Thomas out of Crenshaw High School in Los Angeles switched his commitment from USC to Oregon in one of the biggest recruiting shockers in college football history.  Last year, the 2012 class received two remarkable receivers in Chance Allen and Bralon Addison, who were previously committed to Texas A&M.

Prevot is a 4-star recruit on every recruiting site, with offers from powerhouses like Texas, Oklahoma, USC and LSU as well as powerhouse Oregon.

And yesterday the Ducks did it again.  Long-time verbal Torrodney Prevot decommited from USC last week, and went silent when he got back from his Oregon official visit. Expected to sign with Texas A&M, Prevot becomes the most recent signee in a growing list of signing day wins for the Oregon Ducks.

Prevot, the 19th ranked defensive end in the ESPN 300, fills a position of need being the only defensive line recruit to sign with the Ducks this year.  Assumed to compete for playing time at the hybrid defensive end/linebacker spot where Dion Jordan provided a vital role over the past few years, Prevot will battle with guys like Tony Washington and Christian French.  The 6’4″ 220 pound product of Houston, Texas is one of the most crucial signees in the 2013 class due to the loss of Jordan.

Because the spot has been occupied for the last few years, this will mark arguably the most intriguing position battle during summer and fall camp.
