Recruiting Update: Oregon’s Receiver Corps Getting Richer?

A mid-season resurgence has the Ducks poised to move back into the hunt for preps who may have had early reservations.

Being the flavor of the moment in almost a perennial sense is as important as what an institution can do for a prep four or five years down the road; an insistent repeat of “What have you done for me lately?”

Oregon’s push in the last half the season will be crucial in order to re-take the hearts of preps both near and far.

Just to the south, wide receiver Javon McKinley (4-Star/Corona, Calif./Rivals100) named the Ducks to his final four programs of choice and will take in the Autzen atmosphere this coming weekend.

I’ve been (to Eugene) before … ,” said McKinley, ” … but I’m looking forward to interacting with the players and my parents have a ton of questions to ask the coaches.”

McKinley has the tools to make him a venerable outside threat but one aspect in particular sets him apart.

Vision.

At 6-foot-2, 205 pounds McKinley makes the most nimble of corners miss but does so by lining up his running lanes once he makes a reception.

“(Oregon runs) a similar style of offense to what I’m playing in so I could easily translate to theirs (at) the next level and also the coaches tell me I’d be one of their top guys coming in as a receiver and Oregon has good academics as well.”

A strong showing by wide receivers headman Matt Lubick could firmly place McKinley on Oregon’s Quack Watch; stay tuned!
