Mario Cristobal could potentially have another five-star commit coming to Eugene, this time in 2020.

Announced via social media on Sunday, Jan. 27, five-star wide receiver Johnny Wilson revealed the Oregon Ducks to be in his top 5, along with Washington, Ohio State, UCLA, and Texas.

Wilson, a 6'5" 215-pound receiver from Calabasas High School in California, may be riding that #CaliFlock pipeline all the way to Autzen Stadium in two years.

The connection between Wilson and the University of Oregon? It may have something to do with his current high school teammate Mycha Pittman, who signed with Mario Cristobal's Ducks back in July 23, 2018, according to Rivals. 

One thing that can't go overlooked is the timing of Wilson's announcement. Wilson made this decision following the departure of Oregon wide receivers coach Michael Johnson, who was hired at Mississippi State on Saturday, Jan. 26 to coach the Bulldogs' receivers. Wilson made his top 5 announcement on Sunday.

If Cristobal can use his recruiting powers to hire a wide receivers coach who appeals to Wilson's needs, then this could be a scary elite group of receivers in the coming years at Oregon.

Will Wilson join the #CaliFlock, stay home to Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense at UCLA, join the "Texas is Back" show in Austin, bring the reign in Washington, or head to that Ohio team? Only time will tell.
