The top-ranked signee in Oregon’s class so far has to be No. 1 on this list.
Jalil Tucker has a bright future ahead of him and he’s the third defensive recruit to make the list because, well, the seven signees are primarily defenders.
The four-star from San Diego is teammates with another Oregon target who decommitted after Mario Cristobal left but he has to remain a top target for February’s signing day. He is going to make a push for early playing time because he’s good enough to help return this secondary to elite status.
If you look at Oregon’s cornerbacks, talent is not an issue. I think there were some coaching issues that held them back but Dontae Manning and Mykael Wright are very good players. Add in Trikweze Bridges, Avante Dickerson, and Jaylin Davies and you have a deep group. But I think Tucker is good enough to crack the two-deep right away.
Tucker is the No. 61 overall recruit and ninth-best cornerback on 247Sports and is a composite top-150 player. He’s going to have an immediate impact.
