This time of year recruiting news breaks by the hour, maybe even minutes at times. It gets crazy.
Oregon will host RB Kani Benoit this weekend.
Lucky for all of you Oregon fans and loyal DuckTerritory subscribers, we have been diligently trying to uncover all of the news and place it in one simple location.
There have been several key developments this week including yet another big commitment for new head coach Mark Helfrich.
Hobbs commits to Oregon
Oregon found their quarterback and secured his commitment yesterday. Hobbs is a bit raw in terms of his quarterback polish but his athletic upside is off the charts. Coach Helfrich and his offensive staff will work hard to polish his throwing motion but have a talented athlete to work with. Could Hobbs help with wavering commit Dontre Wilson?
Altman snares a hoops commit
Slightly overshadowed in the wake of an active football recruiting period is a key addition for Dana Altman. Northern Idaho College guard Jalil Abdul-Bassit. Once again Altman hopes to bridge the gap in his classes and keep the success going at Oregon.
Oregon makes some coaching changes
Today the Ducks announced Scott Frost will be promoted to offensive coordinator and coach quarterbacks. This comes as no surprise but is still a quality hire by Mark Helfrich among his veteran staff. You can read the official release from the university below.
Oregon has not officially announced the addition of Ron Aiken as defensive line coach but sources confirm the hire has been made. This adds some NFL experience on the staff at a key position for Oregon.
Oregon offers Johnny Ragin
The saga of in-state Oregon prep Johnny Ragin continues. Ragin committed recently to Cal but Oregon decided to come back into the picture after missing a few other linebacker targets. Helfrich and Pellum visited the three-star linebacker this week and he will visit Eugene this weekend.
Ducks come back around on this RB target
Oregon is hoping to get a third running back commit in this class. Additionally they need to hold on to Dontre Wilson and add one more piece to the puzzle. DuckTerritory reported earlier this week to keep an eye on Kani Benoit and that is exactly what happened.
