As reported last night on Twitter and in this morning's Quack Fix, the Ducks have landed a massive offensive tackle in Braden Eggert, a former Washington State commit who switched to Oregon after visiting for the UCLA game a few weeks ago.
The Cougars lost a verbal commitment in the 2014 class with Braden Eggert jumping from WSU to Oregon http://t.co/WY5KBJBsnI— CougCenter (@CougCenter) November 20, 2013
Eggert is 6'7, 305 lbs and hales from Napa, California. For anyone that's questioned the size of the linemen at Oregon, Eggert is a welcome addition. But aside from size, Eggert also appears aggressive and athletic on film.
Eggert is a three star rated player by most recruiting services but has obviously shown the ability to be a division I tackle. You can teach footwork and technique but you can't teach size and Eggert possesses that in spades, with the ability to add even more weight to his frame as he works out under Coach Radcliffe.
Eggert is Oregon's twelfth commit overall and second along the offensive line, where he joins Tyrell Crosby, another big tackle at 6'5, 290 lbs who together with Eggert should help anchor Oregon's O-line in the future. In addition to Oregon and Washington State, Eggert also had offers from Boise State, Nevada, Oregon State, and San Jose State, among others.
