Football Recruiting


Recruiting success at the national level is no stranger to the Ducks. One could say however, that in-state talent hasn’t always been so ripe for the plucking as Oregon looks to reaffirm its foothold in the home state.

Developing almost in complete anonymity, tight end Cameron McCormick (3-Star/Bend, OR) is rumored to be close to giving the Ducks his college nod.

The visit was great,” said McCormick. “We got to see a lot… speaking with the players was very helpful and my meeting with Coach Mark Helfrich was really informative.”

You’d be hard pressed to know the six-foot-5, 230 lb. McCormick prior to his junior season, when a growth spurt and play on the field rippled towards Eugene.

“(Coach Helfrich) wanted me to know they take their time in recruiting and when they offer someone it is because they fit their program on and off the field.”

McCormick plans on announcing his program decision on his birthday, April 2nd, stay tuned!

New 2024 FishDuck Publishing Schedule….

During the off-season the 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!
