Oregon took a major step in honing its 2016 recruiting class with four early signatures coming by way of wide receiver receiver Dillon Mitchell (4-Star/Memphis, Tenn.), linebacker Eric Briscoe (3-Star/Yakima, Wash.), drop-end Hunter Kampmoyer (3-Star/Bishop, Calif.) and offensive guard Jacob Capra (3-Star/Auburn, Calif.).
All four preps have agreed to financial aid clauses and solidified their statuses as Men of Oregon.

With current freshman quarterback Travis Jonsen’s future unclear, offensive coordinator Scott Frost has begun to comb the JUCO ranks for possible options heading into next season.
Enter Jerod Evans (NR/Athens, Texas/Trinity Valley C.C.).
“In the last week or two, Oregon has jumped into the mix,” said Evans. “I’ve been talking to Scott Frost a lot more and he seems to be fairly interested.”
What makes Evans an intriguing prospect is his build. A stout 6-foot-4, 225-pound pocket passer who can burn opponents with his legs when needed, Evans will have two years to complete two seasons at the D1 level.
Evans has only recently burst into the recruiting channels despite tossing 38 TDs and being named the SW Junior College Conference’s MVP following his sophomore campaign.
