If ever a recruiting visit was well-timed, Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton QB Tyler Shough’s visit to Oregon fit that category. With the Ducks depleted at QB due to injury and transfer, the Rivals250 prospect arrived in Eugene to watch a Duck practice featuring a true freshman and a fifth-year senior at the top of the depth chart, with injured Justin Herbert the only other scholarship player at the position.
On Friday night, Shough’s twitter account mention of being a North Carolina commit disappeared, and on Saturday he gave Coach Willie Taggart a call.
Shough becomes the 23rd commitment to Oregon’s class of 2018, one that is shaping up to be one of the better ones in Duck history. 15 of the Ducks’ 23 commitments are four-stars.
