Oregon was one of the schools Pinson (Ala.) Clay-Chalkville four-star offensive tackle Jac’Qawn McRoy grew up a fan of and he recently got his first real feel of what Eugene is all about.

Now, following a pair of expert predictions in favor of the Ducks, Oregon is trending to land a commitment from McRoy according to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine (RPM).

The Ducks now hold a 92.3% percent chance of securing McRoy’s commitment with Auburn in a distant second.

McRoy recently visited Oregon and told Scoop Duck’s Justin Hopkins that the Ducks have the best facilities he’s ever seen. He also noted that he spent time with Oregon coach Dan Lanning during the visit and the two sat in his office talking for an extended period of time.

McRoy announced his top 10 of ArkansasAuburnFloridaGeorgiaKentuckyLSUMiamiOle MissOregon and Tennessee on Feb. 4.

“Oregon has been my dream school,” McRoy told On3 in February. “It is not about this, but I love how they wear different uniforms. I like the program and I like what they offer in sports management. That is what I want to major in. They have been one of the schools recruiting me hardest.”

The 6-foot-8, 340-pounder is the No. 180 overall prospect and No. 14 offensive tackle in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 11 player in Alabama.
