The Ducks juggernaut didn't fall apart, even though coach Chip Kelly left for the NFL just days before National Signing Day. Usually, coaching transactions occur in early December and a program has about two months to rebound. Not so with Oregon. Granted, it lost a few players—RB Dontre Wilson switched to Ohio State—but this class stayed mostly intact. It was small, but full of talent.
• Ted Miller reports Oregon came in fourth in the Pac-12 for their recruiting class.
• John Canzano shares his talk with Oregon recruit Thomas Tyner.
• Five Oregon seniors have been invited to the NFL combine held later this month.
• Kevin Gemmell says Oregon filled some needs with the latest recruiting efforts.
The Ducks went heavy on offense, and running back Thomas Tyner highlights a group that is loaded with speed (what did you expect, it's Oregon). They added two stellar offensive guards in Hunt and Evan Voeller and a premier defensive end in Torrodney Prevot, previously a USC commit. There are speedy receivers down the line like Darren Carrington. And they added kicker Matt Wogan. The Ducks were 11th in the conference in field goals made in 2012.
