Oregon Football Recruiting: 2018 QB Colson Yankoff Decommits From Ducks


The Oregon Football team lost a commitment from 2018 4-Star Quarterback Colson Yankoff on Monday.

Willie Taggart has been racing the last few days to salvage the Oregon Football 2017 Recruiting Class. He has made several offers that would be considered ‘Swinging For The Fences’ Offers, but if you don’t ask – the answer is always no.

The dismissal of Mark Helfrich has not sat well with 2018 4-Star Quarterback Colson Yankoff who decommitted from the Oregon Ducks Monday citing the Helfrich firing and the uncertainty with the program moving forward.

The Oregon Ducks are in capable hands with Justin Herbert at Center for the next few seasons, but Taggart is well aware he will need to fill a spot at Quarterback for the future. A need which he will surely be addressing in the coming months.

Yankoff was recently named Gatorade Player of the Year for the State of Idaho and has ten offers on the table and will certainly have more with a year to go before he signs with a school. Prior to his commitment to Oregon, Colson Yankoff had Boise State, Idaho and Duke among the teams on his list. According to 247Sports, Stanford may also be in the mix.

The dead period in recruiting is now in effect for the next month which means In-House visits are not allowed, but Coaches can still communicate by phone with potential recruits. National Signing Day for the Class of 2017 is Wednesday, February 1st.
