Holy Crap! Kayvon Thibodeaux, No. 1 Recruit is a DUCK!

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Announcements

Mario Cristobal continues achieve things never done at Oregon before with the verbal commitment today  of the nation’s No. 1 rated recruit in the nation Kayvon Thibodeaux from Southern California. He is a rush-defensive end at 6’5″ and 230 lbs. and is known for extraordinary speed. Sorry guys…I can hardly write as I’m a babbling mass of protoplasm right now as I can hardly believe it.

The announcement was on ESPN at close to 1:00 PM and even the sportscasters admitted that when Alabama is one of the two finalists–it is hard to imagine a player going anywhere else. “Thibs” tweeted after the Washington game, “I’m going to shock the World” after he visited, and recently tweeted the same line, which raised a lot of eyebrows and gave us Oregon fans hope.

My friends, Coach Cristobal has the biggest recruiting weekend of the year going on right now with 15 commits and five-six prospects and their parents on the Oregon campus to generate massive momentum going into the signing day this Wednesday. I cannot imagine the thunder that took place in the Cas Center as Kayvon made his announcement!

The impact on this class and future classes is immeasurable; if the No. 1 (and our first 5-Star player in a long time) will come here, then perhaps others will realize this is a destination for the future?

Tell what you think in the comments about the impact in the short and long term, this class and anything else you can sanely keyboard. (Yep…it is hard for me too!)

What a watershed event for the football team!
