Ducks land commitment from 4-star EDGE Matthew Johnson

The Oregon Ducks got a nice pickup to kick off the weekend, landing a commitment from 4-star EDGE rusher Matthew Johnson, a blue-chip player from De La Salle.

Johnson was previously predicted to land with the Ducks after taking a visit to Eugene earlier this month.

Johnson is rated by 247Sports as the No. 28 EDGE in the 2025 class, and the No. 363 overall player. He is Oregon’s first defensive addition to the 2025 class, which is ranked as the 12th best in the nation.

Standing at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, Johnson projects to be the next in a long line of incredibly successful, young edge rushers to excel in Eugene, such as Matay Uiagalelei, Blake Purchase, and Teitum Tuioti. The Ducks also bring in 5-star EDGE Elijah Rushing in the 2024 class as well.
