Dan Lanning just has a way of getting big-time visitors in Eugene for some of the biggest games that the Oregon Ducks have on the schedule.
I can now report that 5-star OT Kadyn Proctor, a verbal commit to the Iowa Hawkeyes, is in Eugene for the Oregon vs. Washington game on Saturday afternoon.
This report was kept on the low in the days leading up to the contest.
Proctor, who stands at 6-foot-7, 330 pounds, is ranked as the No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2023 class, and the No. 7 overall player in the nation.
The Ducks were originally part of Proctor’s top-7 less than a year ago, but he eventually trimmed it down and left Oregon on the outside before committing to the Hawkeyes, his home-state team. Despite that, Dan Lanning, and more importantly, Adrian Klemm, never let up, and they’ve been working hard to get Proctor back on campus this season. It just so happened that he is coming to the northwest for the rivalry environment of Oregon vs. Washington.
It’s hard to say how strongly Proctor is considering a flip to the Ducks, or even considering opening up his recruitment once again. However, the fact that he is taking a visit for this game isn’t nothing. We will keep a close eye on this going forward.
