The month of June has been a good recruiting month for the Oregon Ducks. On Thursday they picked up their fifth commitment for the Class of 2017 and fourth on Defense with the addition of Deommodore Lenoir, a Cornerback from Los Angeles. 247Sports lists him as the 8th best at his position and he is also the third best athlete in the country.

Lenoir was thought to be heading to his hometown school, USC, but he announced on Twitter that Oregon would be his destination. He is one of the most versatile athletes in the Class of 2017. He played both Offensive and Defensive positions in High school. According to Bleacher Report, he could be similar to USC Star Adoree’ Jackson with his talent.

Deommodore Lenoir had offers from a multitude of schools, including over half the Pac-12 Conference, Boise State, Notre Dame and Alabama. For the Ducks, I think that having a new Defensive Coordinator with a new 4-3 Defensive Scheme helped to sway Lenoir.

With the amount of talent that Brady Hoke has brought to Oregon this month, there is not much left to question. Other commits saw what Hoke had to offer and liked the chance at an opportunity to turn around a Defensive team that allowed close to 30 points per game last season.

Lenoir is the fourth Defensive Commit for the Oregon Ducks for the Class of 2017 joining Rutger Reitmaier, Langi Tuifua, and Sampson Niu.
