Earlier on Saturday, I posted about Oregon football getting a major crystal ball prediction for one of the Ducks’ top 2022 targets in four-star defensive end Cyrus Moss.
It made sense because he was getting set to take a trip to Eugene for the Ducks’ “Saturday Night Live” recruiting event. The momentum building from this event is massive, and we could be on commit watch, assuming Moss does take the trip and he feels like it’s time to pull the trigger. I could see Moss being close to a decision after this Oregon visit.
Another top target in the 2022 class is joining Moss in Eugene this weekend.
Five-star receiver Kevin Coleman from Saint Louis, Mo., is expected to be on campus for the Saturday Night Live event and it’s the perfect chance for the Ducks to impress him and potentially make a big move in his recruitment.
Oregon is high on Coleman’s list along with Texas, Alabama, Arizona State, and Florida State but this is a chance for Mario Cristobal to pull ahead in his recruitment.
Coleman is ranked the No. 21 recruit in the 2022 class as well as the second-best receiver in the country, according to the composite. He holds nearly three-dozen offers and is going to be a top priority for all of his finalists — if not the top target on the board.
Imagining Oregon football’s receiving corps with Coleman
Just think about how good a future receiving corps with Coleman added would truly be.
Let’s just look at next year, for example. The Ducks would return Mycah Pittman, Devon Williams, Josh Delgado, Kris Hutson, Isaah Crocker, Troy Franklin, and Dont’e Thornton. Then you add Isaiah Sategna, Nicholas Anderson, and Stephon Johnson to the mix and you have an elite, young corps.
Having a starting trio of Pittman, Williams, and either Franklin or Thornton would be fantastic, but Coleman could even play in the slot and start, replacing Jaylon Redd. He’s that good.
Or a starting trio of Pittman, Franklin, and Coleman with Thornton, Williams, Crocker, Delgado, Hutson, Sategna, and Anderson coming off the bench would be elite.
This potential receiving corps has to have Cristobal drooling.
