On Wednesday, July 11, class of 2025 wide receiver Dallas Wilson, who was an Oregon commit, shared on social media that an announcement was coming that night.

Rumors exploded all over the internet.

Ever since Wilson committed to the Ducks in January of 2023, teams have been fighting for a chance to steal him away from Dan Lanning.

The Miami Hurricanes, Texas Longhorns, Florida Gators, and Florida State Seminoles all hosted the Tampa Bay wideout for official visits throughout the spring of 2024.

So, of course, when Wilson shared that an announcement was pending, people across the country expected it to be a decommitment from Oregon and commitment to a new program.

As the minutes trickled away, people were anxiously awaiting Wilson's next post, especially Duck fans awaiting the moment at 7 p.m. PT.

However, Wilson was late and anxiety grew.

Wilson didn't share his announcement until nearly 8 p.m. PT, or 11 p.m. ET.

And then X (Twitter) notifications started to explode. Wilson had posted.

After nearly 18 months committed to the Oregon Ducks, Wilson silenced all of the doubters, the haters, and the naysayers.

Wilson reaffirmed his commitment to the Ducks, to Lanning, and to the Oregon community.

Lanning, of course, followed Wilson's post with his classic Duck emoji.

All summer, Lanning has been on a recruiting tear. He has brought in four-star and five-star recruits from the classes of 2025 and 2026 like nobody else in the country.

Just a few hours before Wilson's recommitment to the Ducks, four-star interior offensive lineman Alai Kalaniuvalu committed to Oregon with a simple message, "Up the Sco."

Lanning is building a monster of a program in Eugene and the Ducks are hungrier than ever for that long-awaited national title.
