If you’re already locked into the world of Oregon Ducks football recruiting, then this article most likely isn’t for you. This is for the people who like to be involved and knowledgable about incoming recruits, but may not be familiar with the 2023 class yet.

Now, we can really start to dig into 2023 and beyond, watching as some of the top prospects in the nation start to flock to Eugene for visits, both official and unofficial. Many will be in town on April 23 for Oregon’s spring game, and others have been filtering in and out.
