When a high-profile recruit receives offers from other schools, it’s not usually something to give much attention to. Even after a player has committed to a school — such as Oregon’s four-star 2024 WR Jordan Anderson, for example— it’s not uncommon to see more offers come in the door despite a verbal commitment.
It usually doesn’t mean much. But when an offer comes from a school — and coach — notorious for flipping high-profile prospects, it’s worth noting.
So when Anderson, the No. 13 WR in the 2024 class, announced on Friday afternoon that he had been offered by Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes, a few Duck fans may have taken note.
Colorado has been on a tear on the recruiting trail and the transfer portal, notably flipping five-star cornerback Cormani McClain from Miami, four-star running back Dylan Edwards from Notre Dame and a number of transfers such as five-star athlete Travis Hunter and quarterback Shedeur Sanders.
Does Coach Prime’s track record with high-profile recruits mean he is going to steal Anderson from the Ducks? Absolutely not. Is it something Oregon fans should keep an eye on over the next few months?
That seems like it would be smart.
