Dan Lanning has taken over as Oregon football’s next coach and he’ll have some damage control to do on the recruiting trail before Wednesday.
Early Signing Day isn’t going to have that same feel for Oregon football fans that it usually does. The Ducks are technically no longer head coach-less, but Dan Lanning will be with Georgia through the College Football Playoff which could mean that he doesn’t even take over as Oregon’s official head coach until January.
The Ducks have seen their 2022 recruiting class go from the top-10 range all the way down to No. 22 following the sudden departure of Mario Cristobal for Miami.
Lanning is going to have his work cut out for him in order to try and salvage the 2022 class and slide back into the top-20, and it starts with Early Signing Day on Wednesday.
There’s potential for a handful of guys to commit to the Ducks, but who’s possible?
I originally had Nyjalik Kelly in this spot, but along with Mario Cristobal’s departure have gone the Ducks’ chances of landing the four-star defensive lineman from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and guess what? Cristobal now looks like the leader to land him at Miami. Just an unfortunate development.
Now DJ Wesolak makes an appearance on here at No. 5 because I believe he’s an extreme longshot for the Ducks.
I won’t waste a ton of time talking about the four-star edge rusher from Missouri because it looks like he’s going to be an LSU Tiger on Wednesday after recently taking a trip to check out Baton Rouge and Brian Kelly’s program.
It would be a nice surprise, but I don’t see Wesolak shocking anyone and picking Oregon.
