Some dreams are just too good to be true, apparently.

While the Oregon Ducks had a great chance to land J.T. Tuimoloau, the nation’s top-rated defensive lineman and the No. 1 overall prospect, according to 247 Sports, it just wasn’t in the stars, in the end.

Instead of coming to Eugene, Tuimoloau chose to commit to the Ohio State Buckeyes on Sunday afternoon.

As one of the biggest gets of the 2021 class, Tuimoloau would have fit perfectly into Oregon’s depth chart set to kick off the season against Fresno State in September. Instead, he will be lining up opposite the Ducks on September 11th, when Oregon visits Columbus.
