Ready to Rethink Recruiting for Lanning’s 2022 Class?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Recruiting

Oregon Head Coach Dan Lanning has been impressing everyone with the portal transfers brought in, and the recruiting of freshmen for 2023. At one time the recruiting class for 2022 was a dumpster fire from all the defections after Coach Mario Cristobal left, and the current coaching staff was thrown into a near-impossible situation. I was having some fun going …

Oregon’s QB1: Who Gets The Nod Week 1?

Alex Heining Editorials, Recruiting

Most of the Oregon fan base believes the spring game can say a lot about the state of Our Beloved Ducks program. Generally, with a returning coaching staff and most of the same pieces, that’s usually the case. However this season, I can’t say I agree. We’re in the earliest stages of our new head coach Dan Lanning’s command. But …

Will Henry To’oto’o Please Fix Our Defense?

Ryan Robertson Editorials, Recruiting

Henry To’oto’o has been a star at Tennessee. Unfortunately for the Vol’s, the rest of the team hasn’t matched his ability over the last few years and they find themselves in search of a coach. For To’oto’o, that was enough to put his name in the transfer portal. It looks more and more likely that the linebacker might just end up …

Oregon Poised to Land HUGE Commitment Today

Joshua Whitted Recruiting

It’s time to (finally) close the book on 2020 and see what the future holds for the Oregon Ducks, and that starts with recruiting. It’s no secret that Mario Cristobal is an ace recruiter, and he’s up to his usual tricks once again, putting a bow on what is shaping up to be Oregon’s best-ever class. Right now, the Ducks …

Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu: Sewell’s Replacement at Tackle?

Cameron Johansson Recruiting

Monday afternoon, Oregon football kicked off the week with more bad news. All-American offensive lineman Penei Sewell has decided to forgo the 2020-2021 football season and enter the NFL Draft. Although this move makes sense for Sewell and was expected, it’s still a big blow. Sewell closed the door on his illustrious Oregon career, going down as one of the …

Locked In: Jamal Hill, the Human Missile

Zeke Lerner-Wood Recruiting

In 2018, defensive back recruits Elijah Blades and Jeremiah Criddell made the decision to decommit from the Ducks. This left the Ducks in dire need of a solid defensive back. Oregon had already received verbal commitments from two other defensive backs, Trikweze Bridges and Mykael Wright, but something was still missing from the roster.  Then, in January of 2019, DB …

Happy Days! Is Oregon Going to set a New RECRUITING RECORD?

Charles Fischer, Mr. FishDuck Recruiting

Forget the buzz-kill of COVID and player demands. We are using this site as an escape from reality — a GREEN REFUGE, if you will. It is Thursday, and we don’t have a regular article scheduled, but I wanted your thoughts/predictions/WAGs about Oregon’s recruiting class that will be signed in December of 2020. Will it be a new record, a …

Oregon’s Can’t Miss Kid From Carson

Cameron Johansson Recruiting

In the last few years, Oregon has had lots of success recruiting four and five-star talent from southern California. Kids who played their high school ball in USC’s backyard are increasingly choosing to spend their winters up north in Eugene. In fact, Oregon has done so well in this region that Oregon fans have dubbed this annual group of SoCal …

Oregon’s Cali Flock: Keyon Ware-Hudson is READY to ROCK the PAC

Cameron Johansson Recruiting

After the Ducks’ wide receiving corps, Oregon’s defensive front seven is arguably the deepest unit on the roster. Kayvon Thibodeaux, Jordon Scott and Austin Faoliu will most definitely be leading the defensive line into the season, but there are also plenty of players who will be knocking on the door looking for some action in the 2020 season. One of …

Oregon’s Jayvaun Wilson: Can He Swim Amidst the RB Depth?

Zeke Lerner-Wood Recruiting

The Ducks have had some fantastic running backs in the past. Players like LaMichael James, Derek Loville, and Jonathan Stewart have all cemented themselves as stars in Oregon’s football history. However, the Ducks have also historically had some difficulty dealing with depth for the running back spot, and that hasn’t changed. Currently on the roster, we have CJ Verdell, Travis …

Out With the Old, in With the New: Is Cale Millen the Ducks’ Next Big QB?

Zeke Lerner-Wood Recruiting

West Coast football runs strong in the Millen family. Former NFL quarterback Hugh Millen played for the University of Washington, even leading the Huskies to a victory at the 1985 Orange Bowl before continuing his career professionally. Millen’s second son Clay Millen recently committed to Arizona. And Cale Millen, Hugh’s eldest son, signed with the Ducks in December of 2018. …
