The 2022 recruiting class is taking solid shape for Oregon football and it’s earning some serious national recognition, especially after landing four-star wide out Tetairoa McMillan on Monday.
McMillan is ranked the No. 62 recruit in the class and he became the second four-star prospect to commit to Oregon over the past week as Jahlil Florence kicked things off in August.
With McMillan’s commitment, Oregon now has two top-100 commits and nine in the top 250, according to the composite. It’s clear that Mario Cristobal means business and he’s trying to top what he did last cycle when the Ducks reeled in the No. 6 class in 2021.
And the Ducks may be on the verge of landing four-star Jalil Tucker who is a top-100 recruit on 247Sports and there are talks that a flip of former Washington commit Ben Roberts could be in the works.
With all of this momentum, the team composite rankings have the Ducks listed at No. 8 in the class, up from No. 12, but 247Sports is higher on Oregon’s group, ranking them No. 4.
Yes, the Ducks are behind only Penn State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State and just ahead of Alabama in the team rankings on 247Sports. Not too shabby for a Pac-12 program.
Oregon football isn’t done yet
As mentioned earlier, the Ducks look to be close to landing Tucker and potentially flipping Roberts, a four-star defensive lineman, but there are some other top targets who could be close such as Cyrus Moss.
The Ducks’ 2022 class is now up to 18 pledges and it’s obviously No. 1 in the Pac-12 and if things continue trending in this direction and Oregon wins big in 2021, we may not be far off from Cristobal contending for the No. 1 class in the nation.
Cristobal continues to get it done.
