The 2014 College Football season for the Oregon Ducks won’t start until August 30th, but this past week was a big one for recruiting for Oregon Coaches. Over the weekend the team picked up three commitments from Offensive Lineman, a very important position moving forward for any team. These guys ‘in the trenches’ help protect the Quarterback, and speaking of Quarterback, Oregon has offered a 4-Star QB from Anaheim, California in Dual Threat Athlete Travis Waller.

The three young men will add some youth among the Offensive Line for 2015 and include 3-star athlete Brady Aiello from Lafayette, California, Calvin Throckmorton from Newport, Washington, and 3-star athlete Jake Hanson. The Oregon Ducks now have eight commitments for 2015, five of them will play on the Offensive Line.

Brady Aiello is six foot six and two hundred fifty eight pounds. Calvin Throckmorton can play either Offensive or Defensive Tackle and six foot five and two hundred sixty eight pounds. He is among the younger commits had has yet to turn eighteen. 247Sports has him as the tenth best athlete out of Washington. As a Lineman he runs a 5.25 forty yard dash.The third member of the most recent commits is Jake Hanson, six foot five and two hundred eighty five pounds from Eureka, California.

One thing I noticed is that Oregon is taking the ‘go big or go home’ approach. All three of these young men are over six foot two, which means their arm length is probably pretty wide. The Oregon Ducks will look to all three of these young men in future years, but right now as far as who will likely get a chance to see the field first my guess would by Aiello.

As it stands recruits have until the first week of February to make their final decision on where they will attend college, but it is clear in this recruiting class that the Oregon Ducks are looking to positions of weakness and they intend to fill them. Of course the addition of 4-star QB Waller would be a nice piece of the 2015 Recruiting Class as well.

The offer is now in his hands and his verbal commitment could come in the coming weeks.

The regular season for the 2014 Oregon Ducks begins on Saturday, August 30th against South Dakota. Kickoff for the opener is set for 7:30pm PT on Pac-12 Networks.
