Oregon Football Inks Top-5 Recruiting Class

The Ducks success on the recruiting trail is even more amplified when compared to the shortcomings from the rest of the conference.

EUGENE—Oregon football did what the rest of the Pac-12 conference could not on Wednesday, as the NCAA early signing period window opened for college recruits.

With 238 of the ESPN 300 prospects locked in with letters of intent, the Ducks 2019 signing class ranks fifth in the country and tops in the Pac-12—both of which are program bests.

No other Pac-12 school cracked the national top ten, nor has one yet to sign a five-star recruit like Oregon has.

Highlighting the Ducks haul is Kayvon Thibodeaux, the nation’s No. 1 overall prospect—the first of the sort to ever sign with Oregon.

Thibodeaux, a defensive lineman, joins a star-studded group of lineman on both sides of the football—a clear indication head coach Mario Cristobal had his sales pitch dialed in.

“You cut me open and you look inside, I'm a lineman,” Cristobal said. “I'll be that until the day I go to the grave. I want brag on these guys. (Kayvon) and Jonah (Tauanu’u) are exactly what you want. They’re made of the right stuff. They're tough, they're physical, they're athletic and they’ve got flexibility.”

Oregon’s final 2019 class standing is still fluid with a few more top-300 athletes expected to sign before the early window closes on Friday and the rest set to lock in commitments on National Signing Day in February. Still, don’t expect it to change much with most of the top-300 athletes already signed.
