Head coach Mark Helfrich and the Oregon Ducks football team received its first verbal commitment from the 2014 class, and boy was it a good one. 4-star linebacker Jordan Hoiem Of Baldwin High School from Hawaii has made his intents known, verbally sating his intents of playing his next four seasons with the Oregon program.
Hoiem has offers from the University of Hawaii, UNLV, Utah and Utah State to go along with the Ducks. The 6’4″ 207 lbs linebacker/defensive end brings a big body and burst off of the edge. 247 Sports lists Hoiem as the No. 11 OLB in the country and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Hawaii.
Defensiv coordinator Nick Aliotti is the primary one recruiting the stud defensive playmaker, but Helfrich and linebackers coach Don Pellum are also working with the recruit. Hoiem has elite burst, which will be a nice addition to the Oregon defense. Listed below are the individual results for various drills.
