This past Monday, Oregon welcomed prime-time visitor Kyler Murray (4-Star/Allen, TX/Rivals100) to Eugene. A consensus Top-3 dual-threat prospect heading into his senior season, Murray was said to have had a spectacular experience during his time with the Ducks. A lock for the Under Armour All-American Game and 2013 Texas Gatorade POY, Murray (5’11, 170 lbs) passed for 3,669 yards and accounted for 64 total touchdowns enroute to leading his prep squad to a perfect season. Stay tuned to FISHDUCK for a followup of Murray’s visit next week!
Special teams/tight ends coach Tom Osborne picked up Oregon’s second commitment of the 2015 class in athlete Jacob Breeland (3-Star/Mission Viejo, CA).
“The (Oregon) program is ridiculous,” said Breeland. “The staff is just awesome and the help you get with academics is as good as it gets. The technology and the facilities are insane. We visited on Thursday and Friday but stayed through the weekend. We came home and prayed about it as a family and just knew Oregon was the place.”
A 6-foot-5, 210 lb. route runner, Breeland’s role in the Ducks’ Blur is yet to be determined. A likely tight end with the capability to win jump balls, the west coast product is a lock for Lightning Yellow and Thunder Green.
“… This is it for me. I’ll be back for my official visit in September … but that will be it.”

FishDuck Going to Articles on Monday and Tuesday Only…
Our off-season schedule begins, and we move from publishing articles seven days a week to Mondays and Tuesdays only. Same great group of writers, and we will have an article on other days on occasion.
The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there. At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.
Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!
OBD Forum members….we got your back. No Trolls Allowed!
