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.

Despite Barner’s Impending Exit, Future Bright for Ducks’ Running Backs

//

Some time around 9 PM on January 3, All-American running back Kenjon Barner will walk off the field as an Oregon Duck for the final time. After what’s sure to be an exhilarating Fiesta Bowl against the Kansas State Wildcats, it’ll be fair for Ducks fans to take a moment to reflect on Barner’s decorated career.

But don’t take too long, Oregon faithful. Just a day later, the future of the Ducks’ backfield will be on national display. Oh, and the day after that, too.

Let’s take a step back. In-house, the Ducks have groomed a pair of more-than-capable runners with entirely different styles. Of course, there’s De’Anthony Thomas, the lightning-quick hybrid who experienced some growing pains this season after tearing apart opposing defenses for 1200 yards from scrimmage on just 101 touches his freshman year. Though the “Black Momba” has collected 1,071 more yards on 131 touches in 2012, he was often stifled running the ball in Pac-12 play, held below 50 yards rushing in all but three conference games.

That’s not to say Crenshaw’s finest was a non-factor in these cases. Oftentimes, his dynamic play-making ability forced defenses to hone in on him, creating running lanes for Barner, quarterback Marcus Mariota, and even freshman running back Byron Marshall.

So, let’s talk about Marshall. Though he saw a good chunk of his playing time after Oregon opened up big leads, the Valley Christian (CA) product displayed tough running between the tackles and the ability to fight for extra yardage despite working primarily with a second-unit offensive line. Though Marshall is not a burner like Thomas, his size and power provides a ying to De’Anthony’s yang.

Well, Dontre Wilson’s yang too. And Thomas Tyner’s. That’s because in 2013, the Ducks will welcome not one, but two ultra-fast freshman running backs. Wilson, ranked by Rivals as the #6 All-Purpose Back in the country, boasts a listed 40-yard dash time of 4.40 – on par with that of Thomas.

Dontre Wilson throws up the “O” with a Ducks hat on

Fast enough? Not if you’re Tyner, ranked by Rivals as the #4 Running Back in the country, has run a 4.30 40, according to 247sports. Moreover, the Aloha (OR) athlete is a nationally regarded sprinter, having run a 10.38 100-meter dash during his junior year. Wilson, no slouch of an athlete in his own right, runs track too.

If either Wilson or Tyner hopes to get carries over Thomas or Marshall, they’ll have to be in game shape – and not just any game shape, but the kind of game shape to thrive within the Ducks’ patented high-octane attack. Wilson, a DeSoto (TX) product, isn’t fazed.

“We pretty much run the same offense here, so I’ll be there and I’ll be already equipped to it,” he said in an online feature by Legacy Sports Network.

Wilson and Tyner represent differing archetypes when it comes to top recruits. Whereas Wilson has proved himself against staunch competition in the talent hotbed of Texas, Tyner’s competition has been seen as lesser in the national eye – Oregon not exactly being known for its high school football.

On September 14, Tyner showed just how much he stood above the competition, gathering an absurd 643 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, both Oregon state records, in Aloha’s 84-63 victory over Lakeridge.

The Pac-12, of course, is a whole different story. There’s always the possibility Tyner or Wilson could redshirt, and given the Ducks’ depth at running back, head coach Chip Kelly (or offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, or whoever else may be at the helm should Kelly bolt to the NFL) will have to get creative to integrate both freshmen into the offense. Wilson sounds ready to be used in a variety of fashions.

“If I make it to the NFL, I’m not going to play running back,” Wilson told Legacy Sports Network. “I’ll probably just be a slot receiver or something like that.”

Because Wilson figures into a De’Anthony Thomas-type role in the offense, he seems a more likely candidate to redshirt than Tyner. If that’s the case, expect Tyner and Marshall to split carries while Thomas continues to see snaps both from the slot and the backfield.

Oregon native Thomas Tyner could be Oregon’s starting running back as a freshman. The last Duck to do that was LaMichael James.

Though it won’t be until at least next August that we’ll see Tyner and Wilson in green and yellow, a first live look at both recruits is just around the corner. At 2 PM Pacific Time on January 4, Wilson will compete in the Under Armour All-America Game in St. Petersburg, Florida, and the game will be televised on ESPN. At 10 AM PT on January 5, Tyner will take part in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, which will be televised on NBC.

Can’t wait to get a peak at the future of the Oregon backfield? As a somewhat wise man once said, “Not so fast, my friend.” On January 3, Ducks fans will have the opportunity to take in the present – Kenjon Barner’s last hurrah as a Duck. In this holiday season, there may be no greater gift.

Ducks take recruiting push into January

As usual, Oregon’s football recruiting class as December dawns has some fans worrying about the Ducks’ lack of numbers at this point. As of Wednesday, the Ducks had 10 known commitments to their 2013 class, which can begin signing letters of intent on Feb. 6. That’s only slightly off the …


Devon Blackmon to Transfer from Ducks

//

In a statement released by the University of Oregon football program, wide receiver Devon Blackmon has informed head coach Chip Kelly of his intentions of transfer from the school and team. Kelly said that Blackmon finish the remainder of his fall academic term before transferring, but has been excused from his remaining football obligations.

“He has been a solid contributor to this football program for the last two seasons and I wish him continued success whatever he decides to pursue,” Kelly said.

The redshirt freshman from Fontana, Calif. struggled to see play time in Oregon’s loaded offense. Blackmon, a 4-star recruit, redshirted his freshman season and has only seen game time in two of Oregon’s 11 games in 2012, with both of those coming in the first three games without recording a stat.

The 6-1, 186-pound Summit High School standout caught 31 passes for 379 yards and five touchdowns as well as rushing 35 times for 370 yards and six additional TDs as a senior in high school. Many considered Blackmon a future star in Oregon’s receiving corp. Rivals.com had Blackmon rated the No. 5 receiver in the country and 35th best overall player. He had scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida, USC and many others, but chose the Ducks ultimately.

This story should not come as a shock. Just prior to kickoff for the season, heralded receiver Tacoi Sumler declared his intention to transfer. He eventually landed with Appalachian State.

While Blackmon did not have significant action with the Ducks, his presence will be missed. Oregon’s cluttered receiving corp include Bralon Addison (freshman), Eric Dungy (sophomore), Daryle Hawkins (junior), Josh Huff (junior), B.J. Kelley (freshman) and Keanon Lowe (sophomore). With such youth on the depth chart, there wasn’t much room for moving up the depth chart.

Oregon transfers have often had success post-transfer. Former Ducks running back Lache Seastrunk rushed for 185 yards on 19 carries (9.5 YPC) along with a touchdown and an 80-yard run for Baylor last weekend in an upset win over then No. 1 Kansas State. Another is wide receiver Chris Harper who has had success with Kansas State, catching 47 passes for 727 yards and three touchdowns. Harper had his best performance of the season against Baylor (11 receptions, 123 yards and a TD).

He will have three seasons of collegiate eligibility remaining wherever he transfers to. He will likely transfer to a JUCO before making the move back to a division one school. Blackmon would have to miss a season if he transferred to another FBS program, and two if that program was a Pac-12 school.

Oregon Ducks Football: The Early Commits

//

As any college football fan knows, it is never too early to talk about recruitment these days. With high school (and sometimes even junior high) athletes being analyzed through just about every microscopic lens imaginable, there is a plethora of information about each and every recruit of — and commitment to — a university. The advent of cell phones, the internet, and a new era in mass media has allowed for the exchange of personal information on a level that surpasses sports and permeates throughout the entire world.

Luckily for you, we will leave the rest of that stuff up to politics. Here, we will be talking about and analyzing those recruits that you find most enticing: the newest additions to the University of Oregon football program. Why care about these early 2013 commits to the Ducks?

These players will soon be your knights in shining armor. They will wear the same coat of arms that you do, use their skills to slay their foes, and further the glory and conquest of your football program.

In year’s past, around this point in the recruiting process, you could look on ESPN, Scout, or Rival’s recruiting sites to see that the Ducks had secured three-to-five early commitments and feel a completely different feeling than you should feel now. Now you really care about what is happening. You find yourself excited about the potential of these recruits day-in and day-out. These are no longer one- or two- star athletes committing to the Ducks early. These are the big guys – the guys who already possess the skills to succeed; the guys who are ranked at the tops of their positions.

It has been a long time coming, but the University of Oregon football program has ascended the ranks into becoming one of the best recruiting schools in the nation. They have spent years upon years building up a recruiting base that could attract high-profile stars such as the ones who have already committed to the Ducks, and those masterminds behind this craft are finally seeing their hard work come into fruition.

With the commitment of three players within the ESPN top 300 for the 2013 class — two of them included in the ESPN top 150 — the Ducks are already flying high this year in recruiting.

Oregon currently has five early commitments as part of their early class: Dontre Wilson (ATH), Thomas Tyner (RB), Evan Voeller (OT), Darren Carrington (WR), and John Mundt (TE).

With many more high profile recruits to add to this already impressive list, here is a run down of the newest commitments to the University of Oregon football program.

Dontre Wilson (5’10”, 180 lbs.) – Athlete – DeSoto, Texas – DeSoto High School

Texas RB Dontre Wilson is one of the most impressive athletes in the 2013 class. He is rated as a four-star player all across the board — ESPN, Rivals, and Scout — and is an ESPN150 athlete.

As a Junior at DeSoto High School, Wilson rushed for 767 yards on 127 attempts amounting to just over 6 yards per carry to go along with his 15 rushing TDs. Wilson also caught 12 balls for 246 yards and 5 TDs, already showing flashes of the versatile player that he can be.

In an interview with Claude Mathis, the coach of DeSoto High School, he had this to say in reference to Dontre:

“He is an explosive and extremely intelligent player…defenders may ignore his explosiveness and then get hit by his skill.”

Dontre, by all evidence, is destined to be a star at the next level; regardless of what position he plays. Though a very talented running-back, Wilson can contribute at other positions as well. Mathis had this to say about his versatility:

“He can also excel at corner-back…whatever position he plays at the next level he can do well in.”

If it is not already evident, Dontre Wilson is an exciting and explosive player. While high school coach Claude Mathis does acknowledge that his leadership abilities do need further development, Wilson seems destined to impress at the University of Oregon.

Any Duck fan should be extremely excited about this early commitment from an extremely talented player.

Thomas Tyner (6’0″, 205 lbs.) – Running Back – Aloha, Oregon – Aloha High School

Considered by many to be one of the top running-backs in the nation, the commitment of Thomas Tyner, a local athlete from Aloha, Oregon, was huge for the Ducks. Along with the commitment of Dontre Wilson (mentioned above), Tyner and Wilson could be the next James-Barner combo to come to Eugene.

Tyner is rated as a five-star player on Rivals and Scout while garnering a four-star rating on ESPN while also being part of the ESPN150. After a Sophomore season at Aloha High School that saw Tyner rush for 1,821 yards and 19 TDs, his much anticipated junior season was cut short after suffering a concussion and subsequent fractured tibia. Despite these injuries, Tyner still accumulated 1,136 yards on the ground and 12 TDs.

Tyner, also a track star, is known for his breakaway speed. If he gets out in the open, he is unstoppable.

The other key element of the commitment of Thomas Tyner to Oregon is the fact that he is a local prospect looking to bring further glory to a state school. Keeping Tyner in Oregon and showing the nation that Oregon can be a recruiting powerhouse is key.

Evan Voeller (6’4″, 285 lbs.) – Offensive Tackle – West Linn, Oregon – West Linn High School

Another product of Oregon, Evan Voeller rated as four-stars across the board by ESPN, Rivals, and Scout.

A solid offensive tackle, Voeller was yet another recruit that was big for Oregon to keep in state. The key for Voeller within the Oregon football system will be the fact that he is great with space blocking and physicality.

Using one more year to develop more into a college football body built for the Ducks, Voeller should provide a great option for the Ducks about a kid who knows the system.

Voeller is likely a step behind another big name lineman from the state of Oregon, Isaac Seumalo. A senior year where he can grow further should allow him to develop the skills and physicality to excel at the college football level and beyond.

Darren Carrington (6’3″, 184 lbs.) – Wide Receiver – San Diego, California – Horizon High School

A rather tall and lanky wide receiver (as of right now), Darren Carrington is a four-star prospect on ESPN and Scout while being rated a three-star prospect on Rivals. A product of San Diego, CA, Carrington will use a senior year to put on a few more pounds and build into a frame that should become one of the more intimidating in college football.

Already a fast player, Carrington also has great ability with his hands and with his ability to catch the ball in traffic. Horizon High School football coach Chris Johnson believes Carrington is a can’t miss prospect.

“(Carrington) has amazing ball skills,” said Johnson. “He plays better than anybody I have seen in my life…(Carrington) reminds me of Cris Carter.”

The comparison that Coach Johnson makes to Cris Carter should have Duck fans already salivating. Familiar with Carter ,due to his time alongside him, Johnson also goes on to state that Carrington “will get bigger, he will get faster…he’s really helped transform our school and our football program and I hope that it will translate to the University of Oregon.”

Even after just the short time I was able to spend on the phone with Coach Johnson really illustrated the type of player everybody expects Carrington to be. He is an outstanding, intelligent athlete that will also be a valuable member of the Eugene community.

John Mundt (6’5″, 235 lbs.) – Tight End – Modesto, California – Central Catholic High School

Mundt is the sole Duck commitment so far that has not garnered at least a four-star rating on one of the three main scout sites (ESPN, Rivals, and Scout). A three star prospect across the boards, Mundt is quick the physical presence at TE and should be able to develop his body even further before entering college.

His multiplicity of positions is also a big plus for Chip Kelly and the rest of the football staff, as he has demonstrated the ability to play on both sides of the ball, something that Chip Kelly has been known to highly value.

No matter the name or the rating of the prospect, Oregon fans all around the nation should be excited that these five exciting players are coming to play for their football team.

All of these athletes have already demonstrated the athleticism and flexibility to excel in the Oregon football program and should be able to improve upon their numbers with stellar senior seasons before heading to Eugene.

Four-Star RB Recruit Commits to Ducks

//

Last Friday, the Oregon Ducks football program scored a major coup when running back Dontre Wilson, one of the top recruiting prospects in the nation, verbally committed to play for the school.

Between his great hands, deceptive quickness, and breakaway speed – in the words of Scout.com’s Greg Powers, “He runs a legit 4.4” – Wilson is a natural fit for Chip Kelly’s finely tuned, up-tempo offense, which likely played no small part in the DeSoto High player (as in DeSoto, Texas) choosing Oregon over competing overtures from other college football powerhouses like Ohio State and Texas.

Wilson joins a number of standout running backs to enter the Oregon program over the past decade, including three 5-star caliber backs.

There’s just one catch: he doesn’t graduate from high school until next year. With the 2012 season still several months off, it feels strange to be talking about recruiting for the 2013 season, but Kelly’s football squad is regularly accused of being ahead of the curve for a reason.

The NCAA prohibits schools from making written offers to athletes until August of their senior year, so early commitments like Wilson’s are not binding in any way, but there’s something to be said for planning ahead.

Remember, 2011 freshman standout DeAnthony Thomas will be joined in Oregon’s backfield next year by highly touted scatback Byron Marshall. When Wilson and fellow early-committer Thomas Tyner suit up in 2013, Oregon may very well find itself in possession of one of the fastest and most explosive backfield in the country.

Still, Kelly and his coaching staff will have their hands full keeping so many talented running backs happy; even when you play as fast as the Ducks, there’s only so many touches to go around. Last season, the team gave LaMichael James the bulk of the carries and worked in Thomas as a return man and slot receiver, and something similar could work to ensure all of their shiny new RBs see some playing time in 2013.

Bottom line, no matter who ends up being the team’s workhorse back in 2013, rest assured that the Ducks will find plenty of ways to get home run threats like Wilson and Tyner on the field.

The Ducks, over the past five seasons, are beginning to compare to USC’s era of dominance with running backs in the early and mid 2000s. A few more standout backs, and they could very well surpass them.

Oregon Lands Big Visit

//

Craig Loper, EDN Sports Features

What does a team do when a player decides to transfer unexpectedly?

Recruit a player that will be able to replace him, of course.

And that’s exactly what the Ducks did when running back Dontre Wilson visited Oregon its pro day.

After former duck Tra Carson decided to leave the team this off-season, Oregon is looking for a future star in the backfield that may have to to step on the field quickly.

A 4-star prospect, according to rivals.com, Wilson comes from DeSoto, TX. Considered an all-purpose back, Wilson is listed at 5’10” 176 pounds with 4.4 speed. With offers from schools like Oklahoma, LSU, Ohio State and Texas, there’s no shortage of teams looking to land Wilson.

Although Texas had been atop Wilson’s list for the majority of the recruiting process, the visit to Oregon reportedly changed his mind. Wilson talked about the visit.

“The trip was everything I expected it to be,” said Wilson, “Me and my dad had a great time.”

Luckily for the Ducks, Wilson already has an Oregon connection. Family friends with Oregon’s all-time leading rusher LaMichael James, Wilson made sure to say hello and discuss adjusting to the life of a division one student-athlete.

“I spent some time talking to (him) about that, (being away from home), and how he managed to get through it,” Wilson said.

If the Ducks were to eventually land Wilson, look for head coach Chip Kelly to use him as another dynamic playmaker in open space for his spread offense.

As a junior at DeSoto high school, Wilson rushed for 767 yards and 15 touchdowns while also catching 12 passes for 246 yards and five touchdowns.

Altman and Co. Hard At Work This Offseason

//

Alex Shoemaker, EDN Sports Editor

While the Oregon Ducks’ men’s basketball season ended with a loss to Washington in the quarterfinals of the NIT a week ago, head coach Dana Altman and the rest of the coaching staff are still hard at work recruiting.

The Ducks will lose five players to graduation who will be replaced in the offseason with transfers and incoming high school players. Of the five lost to graduation are starters Garrett Sim (12.2 PPG, 2.7 APG), Jeremy Jacob (4.4 PPG, 3.1 APG) and Oregon’s MVP Devoe Joseph (16.7 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 3.3 APG).

Along with the three lost starters, the Ducks must also replace one of the best “6th man” players in senior forward Olu Ashaolu(9.2 PPG, 5.8 RPG) whose high-flying dunks were often highlighted on SportsCenter. Tyrone Nared is the final Duck who will be replaced this offseason.

Many of the nation’s top recruits for the 2012 recruiting class have already verbally committed themselves to the school of their choice, but many more are undecided or can be swayed for their current school of choice.

Oregon’s top recruit in the 2012 recruiting class is point guard Dominic Artis, an ESPNU top-100 prospect and the #8 PG, has already committed to the program and will look to be the eventual replacement of Sim.

Artis, a former UCLA commit says he switched to the Ducks because he felt more comfortable with the Oregon program.

“As far with the UCLA,” said Artis. “I just wanted to have a place where I felt like I was the main guard on the court and just kinda run the system and get it done for the organization.”

With the Ducks, Artis will be an early feature and see immediate playing time as soon as he joins the team.

Oregon has three more commits in small forward Damyean Dotson, a 3-star (ESPNU) prospect out of Houston, TX who will likely play reserve minutes for the Ducks in the 2012-13 season.

Ben Carter (Las Vegas, NV) and football star Arik Armstead are also Oregon commits. Armstead, likely to start or see prominent playing time on the football team next season says he also will play basketball for the Ducks.

Several key prospects are still interested in the Ducks as Altman closes up a solid recruiting class that has the potential to finish as a top-25 ranked class.

Anthony Bennett, a 6’8” 230 lbs. power forward out of Brampton, Ontario remains as one of the top uncommitted prep players and a m

ajor focus for the Ducks. Many have labeled Bennett as a “one-and-done” caliber player who posses the intangibles to play in the NBA at some point after college basketball.

Oregon has only signed two players of Bennett’s caliber. Most recently was Jabari Brown who only played two games for the Ducks before transferring. The other is former Oregon graduate and NBA reserve player Malik Hairston who passed up the NBA draft as a senior in high school to pursue a collegiate career.

If the Ducks are able to snag the heralded Bennett, it would improve the team’s initial rank of somewhere in the middle of the Pac-12 conference and elevate them to a top-25 team nationally.

Altman and the Oregon program have had success over the past two seasons signing Canadian recruits. Ashaolu and Joeseph both are of Canadian descent.

Christopher Obekpa also remains another viable target for the Oregon program.

A 6’8” 225 lbs. center out of Centereach, NY, Obekpa would be a prefect addition to the starting lineup. Along with starting center Tony Woods, the two would easily be one of the top “big man” combos in the Pac-12.

Obekpa has offers from Connecticut, Georgia Tech, Memphis and many more. It appears as of now that Connecticut is the leading candidate for Obekpa’s talents.

Torian Graham (Durham, NC) is the final prospect the Ducks should have at the top of their recruiting list. Reports are that Graham is favoring the hometown North Carolina State Wolfpack for his commitment, but he has yet to officially commit.

Graham is one of the top prep shooting guards in the entire country and would fit nicely alongside Artis. With solid play down low by the Oregon bids and the addition of a solid point guard, the biggest need is a reliable shooter to replace Sim.

Oregon has a lot of needs to fix this offseason, and there are an abundance of recruits still available. Just because the season is over doesn’t mean that the work is over. Check in here for more up-to-date recruiting info.
