Increasingly popular for the Ducks coaching staff, the JUCO recruiting trail is once again heating up. Last week, defensive end Jeremiah Mitchell (2-Star/Riverside, CA) received an Oregon offer and immediately took notice.
“I’m interested in the offer for sure,” said Mitchell. “I definitely want to visit Oregon and check it out. I’m going to talk to coach (Ron) Aiken pretty soon about setting that up. Oregon is definitely pretty high on my list.”
At 6-foot-5, 255 lb., Mitchell, a former wrestler, is the ideal body type for Aiken’s schemes and would no doubt bulk up significantly once in Eugene.
It’s only a matter of time for Mitchell in regard to making an official visit and subsequent commitment to don Lightning Yellow and Thunder Green; he’ll be a Duck 10 minutes after stepping onto campus.

According to our friends over at DuckTerritory, Oregon’s grudge match with our not-so-noisy northern neighbors will be a crucial hinge point with several key preps.
Teammates John Houston (5-Star/Gardena, CA/Rivals100) and Rasheem Green (5-Star/Gardena, CA/Rivals100) will be on hand to take in the spectacle that is Autzen Stadium after first spending some time on campus.
Green, a 6-foot-4, 290 lb. defensive end is one of, if not the top trench warrior coming out of the 2015 class and is believed to be very high on Oregon entering the late fall. Both he and the hard-hitting ‘backer Houston (6-foot-3, 208 lb.) are bringing significant members of kin and are said to be taking this trek north very seriously.
A long-time Ducks lean, Green has been on campus twice and was close to committing during his visit on Sept. 6. After naming Oregon his outright leader earlier this year, Green could be the quarterback of the future as his ceiling continues to skyrocket during his current junior season. Stay tuned to FishDuck for rapid reaction following his press conference!
