Final Analysis of Oregon Football Recruiting 2016

Jason Fowler Recruiting

The recruiting class of 2016 for the Oregon Ducks did not end as well as I would have liked. Expecting to crack the top 15 for the first time under coach Mark Helfrich was initially promising but, like the second half of the Alamo Bowl, slowly got away from the Ducks.

The 41-24 box score from the Oregon vs Colorado contest would indicate, at least on the surface, that the Ducks are back to running opponents out of the building. However, questions regarding the quarterback position reached an all time high as former walk-on signal-caller Taylor Allie and wide receiver Bralon Addison took snaps as Oregon’s No. 1 QB this past weekend.
