Coaches can not comment on commits. The published announcement by the commits and recruiting listings are strictly fuel for fan speculation. Oregon coaches do not recruit by assigned stars or use stars to evaluate their "National Letter of Intent" signees.
So, as fans hear of unofficial commits in advance of their probable official signing, the guessing game continues as to whether or not those young men will end up signing their NLI with the Ducks.
One set of recruit rankings shows 19 Oregon commits, 1 five-star, 5 four-star and 11 three-star. They rank Oregon's recruiting class in the nation's top-20. Five of the top Duck commits have enrolled in school for winter term, which is obviously a tremendous sign for the program
The Oregon Club of Portland's Parr Lumber Signing Day Dinner (reservations needed) will get the official rundown from Coach Helfrich with details and video on each recruit. See you on February 4!
