Quarterback/Athlete Damion Hobbs Commits to Oregon

Hobbs is the fourth commitment of Mark Helfrich's young career.

Per Craig Loper II of FoxSports and Scout.com, Athlete/Quarterback Damion Hobbs of Cedar Hill, Texas has committed to play football for the Oregon Ducks.

This report was later confirmed by multiple recruiting outlets. Hobbs had been committed to Utah State but received a late offer from Oregon after Mark Helfrich took over as head coach. He visited last weekend and committed to the Ducks this evening.

Hobbs is a three star dual-threat QB who played multiple positions in high school. It has been thought all along that Oregon will only take one QB in this year's class, which likely eliminates JUCO prospect Tanner McEvoy from consideration.

The recruitment of a QB became a priority for Oregon after rumors that Brian Bennett would switch to defense and became even more important after Bennett decided to transfer from the Oregon program. Not only does Hobbs fill a position of need, he could also help the Ducks with the rest of their class.

Hobbs is Oregon's 17th commitment. Per Matt and Dave's interview with Matt Prehm of 247sports on the podcast last night, Oregon is expected to take anywhere from 20 to 22 total players in the 2013 class. National Signing Day is February 6th.
