Oregon football recruiting: Travis Dye’s monster week and 2 more 4-star offers

Oregon football-Oregon recruiting-updates-travis dye

Despite a 3-0 start in nonconference play, the Oregon Ducks have fallen back a bit as an injury to quarterback Justin Herbert has somewhat derailed what was looked like a promising first-year for coach Willie Taggart. The Ducks sit at 5-4 on the season and 2-4 in conference after the win last week over a struggling Utah team.

But it’s never too early to start thinking about recruiting, and while Oregon might not reach lofty heights this season, Taggart has already put together a Top-10 rated class for next season, and more reinforcements may very well be on the way.

The Ducks will use the rest of the fall to bring in some of their final targets for official visits, with the hope of putting the finishing touches on an already strong group of high school seniors, that includes Norco (Calif.) running back Travis Dye, who scored seven touchdowns in a playoff game last week.

Here’s an update on where things stand for the Class of 2018:

Where Oregon’s class ranks

Oregon’s 2018 class is currently ranked No. 6 in the country and No. 1 in the Pac-12, according to 247Sports composite rankings. The Ducks have an average commit ranking of 89.39, which ranks 13th in the country and 3rd in the conference.
