The Oregon Ducks have been on fire as of late when it comes to recruiting. With a handful of talented players agreeing to come to Eugene over the past week, helping to raise Mario Cristobal’s squad all the way up to 9th in the nation, it seems that there isn’t a high school prospect that the Ducks can’t get.
That ball could certainly keep rolling this weekend, with the announcement that two 5-star prospects are set to choose their future schools. Washington DL J.T. Tuimoloau and Texas OL Kelvin Banks have cut down their lists of prospective teams, and Banks announced that his decision will come on Monday, July 5th.
After the recent string of success, the Ducks should feel confident going into the announcements. Tuimoloau, who is the No. 1 ranked defensive lineman in the nation, recently canceled his recruiting trip to the Alabama Crimson Tide after visiting Eugene. He is set to decide between the Ducks, the Ohio State Buckeyes, the USC Trojans, and the Washington Huskies.
As for Banks, the dominoes are seemingly falling as high-end Texas recruits choose Oregon, and the 6-foot-5, 300-pound OL could be the next to fall. With 4-star lineman, Cameron Williams, and 4-star receiver Nicholas Anderson committing to the Ducks on Thursday, the pipeline from the Lonestar State to the PNW is firmly in place. Add to that the commitment of 4-star Texas QB Tanner Bailey, and there is no shortage of familiar faces to drive Banks to choose the Ducks.
Another recruit from who we are waiting on a decision is 4-star WR Isaiah Sategna, who is also one of the top track athletes in the nation. He is currently deciding between Oregon and USC but has yet to release a date for his decisioin.
The coming weeks could be massive for the Ducks, and their spot in the recruiting rankings should continue to rise. Stay tuned, a movement is taking place in Eugene.
