Dan Lanning did it yet again.

On Thursday, five-star wide receiver Dakorien Moore (class of 2025) committed to the Oregon Ducks over the Ohio State Buckeyes, Texas Longhorns, and LSU Tigers.

So, has Lanning officially cemented Oregon as a Blue Blood program after his three-year-long streak of top-tier recruiting?

We would argue that it’s an obvious yes.

This offseason, Lanning has cherry-picked recruits from across the country, stealing them from programs like Ohio State, Texas, Alabama, and more on numerous occasions.

Lanning’s 2024 recruiting class was ranked No. 3 in the nation, behind only Georgia and Alabama, according to 247Sports.

So far, the Ducks’ 2025 class is ranked No. 5 but more and more blue-chip players commit to Oregon on a (seemingly) daily basis.

Moore was the third five-star commitment in Lanning’s 2025 class and the Ducks’ 15th commitment for the class thus far.

Notably, Oregon has also received commitments from four-star wide receiver Dallas Wilson, four-star cornerback Dorien Brew, and four-star linebacker Nasir Wyatt.

The Ducks are rapidly climbing the national polls in both the preseason rankings and projected NFL Draft classes for years to come.

Lanning has not only changed the culture, he’s emboldened his staff and players to believe that they are a part of the best program in the country.

His work with the team over the last three years has already paid off and as the Ducks head to the Big Ten, Oregon is ready to compete amongst the best teams in the nation for years to come.
