Dan Lanning doesn’t need any rest. From announcing his commitment to the program to bringing in transfer commits to returning to the recruiting circuit, Lanning is a nonstop machine.

Other than watching the occasional Jason Bourne movie with his sons, he hasn't seemed to hesitate on beneficial coaching decisions for the Ducks. Going across the country to North Carolina, Lanning visited Chad Grier’s undefeated Providence Day program.

This followed visits along the East Coast and specifically to Union Grove High School in Georgia, where he ran into former boss Kirby Smart.

Lanning's current recruiting class sits at No. 5 nationally and first in the Big Ten.

Now fans just have to wait until Lanning sends out his famous Duck emoji tweets – usually signifying a recruit who has newly committed to join his roster.
