Zeke Lerner-Wood Recruiting

In 2010, the Ducks led the league in scoring, made top five in the majority of offensive categories, and qualified for a national championship. A fully fledged offensive force took the field, nimbly dancing around defenders and tearing apart formations. However, in recent years the Ducks have transitioned to a much more physical and aggressive play style, relying on larger …

The Big Ugly Ducklings: Jonah Tauanu’u is Here to Compete

Cameron Johansson Recruiting

Legendary football coach and NFL broadcaster John Madden used to refer to offensive linemen as “the big uglies.” Get behind those big uglies and push the ball downfield!

New Flock of Ducks: Oregon Women Add Sharpshooting Transfer

Alex Nordstrand Recruiting

For a college basketball team, losing arguably three of the top players in program history warrants an expected down time to rebuild and reload. However, that is not the case for Oregon Women’s Basketball, as Kelly Graves and staff continue to show that this program is going to be around for a long time to come. Not only are the …

There’s a New Herbert in Town

Cameron Johansson Recruiting

When the Ducks eventually start their pre-season practices, they will be pretty thin at the tight-end position. Last season, the passing game put a huge emphasis on tight ends. Jacob Breeland was on track for a potential record-setting season before he injured his leg. This forced Justin Herbert to adjust to Hunter Kampmoyer and Ryan Bay. Both of these tight …

Recruiting Update: The Ducks Strongest Class Ever?

Mark Flores Recruiting

Under Mario Cristobal, Oregon’s coaching staff could write the book on finishing strong in a recruiting cycle.

Alex Nordstrand Recruiting

The Oregon Men’s Basketball team is bringing back plenty of returning talent for the upcoming season. However, if there is one thing we know about Dana Altman, it is that he is always looking for ways to improve his roster, particularly with experience, and this off season has been no different.

Dollars Provides Additional Depth in Ducks’ Backfield

Cameron Johansson Recruiting

With a new quarterback and a depleted offensive line, the Ducks will be entering the season with some question marks on offense. However, there is no lack of depth at the running back position. CJ Verdell, Cyrus Habibi-Likio, Travis Dye, and redshirt freshman Sean Dollars will be headlining the Oregon offense in 2020. Dollars is a four-star recruit from Oregon’s …

DJ James is Ready to Make his Mark

Zeke Lerner-Wood Recruiting

The 2019 recruiting process was a bit of a whirlwind when it came to cornerbacks. After the sudden de-commitment of Marques Caldwell and Elijah Blades, the second reserve slot was left open. Sure, Mykael Wright, who went on to have a fantastic first season, had Ducks fans feeling somewhat confident about the future of the cornerback position, but there was …

Mario Cristobal Stocks the Recruiting Larder With Latest Hire

Mark Flores Recruiting

It’s becoming almost an embarrassment of recruiting riches in Eugene under Mario Cristobal. Last week we learned that Oregon has reportedly hired Bryan McClendon as passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach. Though McClendon looks to have considerable coaching chops, the real weight of this hire may be less on the coaching side and more on the recruiting side. This is the …
