Oregon Extends Offer to Talented 2016 Recruit

The biggest challenge in college sports is filling the spots of those who move on. Whether that person is graduating and moving on, or taking their talents to the professional ranks, the recruiting battle is forever endless. With that being said, the Oregon Ducks have extended an offer to Nathan Smith, a top lineman recruit in the class of 2016, according to oregon247sports. Nathan plays football at Murrieta’s Mesa High School, in Southern California.

This kid is absolutely massive. At 6’7, 275 pounds, he has the size of a college football player already, with much room to grow. Smith is a Junior, so he will have a full year from now until he graduates high school to mature and improve his craft. He has also received offers from the likes of BaylorSMU, and UCLA, so it doesn’t surprise us one bit that Oregon decided to jump on this bandwagon. Smith is an incredibly talented player, with room to improve, and if the image below showing Smith pulling a car doesn’t wow you, then I have no idea what would. While some people might consider it very early to give an offer to a kid this young, obvious talent is discovered from a young age, hence the multiple offers he has already received. Coach Mark Helfrich and staff are doing a great job at recruiting talent now, and securing talent for future classes as well.

New 2024 FishDuck Publishing Schedule….

During the off-season the FishDuck.com publishing schedule will consist of articles on Mondays and Tuesdays. Do keep checking as new articles could be published during the week when a writer has something to say.

In mid-August of 2024, we will go back to the seven-days-a-week of articles during the football season as we did in the football season of 2023.

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!
