Recruiting Update: Helfrich’s March to the Sea

Football Recruiting

News

Oregon’s reach into the deep south gained even more momentum with a recent development coming by way of defensive end Arden Key (4-Star/Atlanta, GA).  While previously committed to South Carolina, Key opted to open his recruitment and tabbed the Ducks as his team of choice heading into the summer.

Oregon offers the best opportunity for me and my family,” said the 6-foot-6, 215 lb., Key.

A lanky-built defensive-minded prep, Key uses a blazing first step to gain quick advantages over larger opponents.  Once in the backfield, Key’s lateral speed and ability to track down ball carriers will serve him well at the collegiate level where We, The Oregon Faithful, will recognize a young Dion Jordan in the making.

Key plans to officially announce his decision at the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, stay tuned!

Dual-threat quarterback Travis Waller (3-Star/Anaheim, CA) has been a name of interest for some time as Oregon looks to replenish its signal-caller corps in the coming years.  An offer may be soon on the way as Waller indicated that contact has increased with Eugene.

Oregon said I will have an offer,” said the 6-foot-2, 195 lb. Waller.

With so many variables in place including recently renewed interest from Kyler Murray (4-Star/Allen, TX/Rivals100), headman Mark Helfrich and offensive coordinator Scott Frost will be in a calculated rush to bring clarity to an ever-intriguing carousel of options.  The muddy water may soon clear, as Murray plans to announce his decision at the end of the month, no doubt setting the course of Waller’s recruitment in a more focused direction.
