Oregon's Recruiting Class Surging Towards Top Five

Well happy Monday everyone. I bet you found that surprise quite nice to start the week. The relentless pursuit of five-star EDGE Elijah Rushing has given the Ducks another elite commit.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder is one of the top-ranked recruits nationally. Rushing is the No. 35 ranked player in the country and No. 5 ranked EDGE prospect in the On3 Industry Rankings. That addition has pushed Oregon’s recruiting class dangerously close to a top five class.

In the last few weeks Oregon landed commitments from four-star JUCO DB Sione Laulea and near five-star defensive lineman Aydin Breland. Those two additions plus Rushing pushed Oregon’s class from the teens up to No. 6 nationally.

The Ducks have 24 commits in the class and remain in the hunt for several elite prospects.

Here is a look at the current On3 recruiting rankings after the Rushing commitment.

  1. Georgia
  2. Ohio State
  3. Florida
  4. Florida State
  5. Alabama
  6. Oregon

Last week I published my next three to commit. With Rushing in the fold, there are two names to immediately monitor. Check out those names here and the latest.

Can the Ducks move into the top five as we near the early signing period in December? Stay tuned to ScoopDuck for the latest updates.
