Oregon received its first commitment in the 2015 recruiting class today in consensus four star recruit, Zach Okun, who announced the news via his twitter account:
Okun is a 6'4, 310 lbs offensive guard who will provide great size in the middle for the powerful Ducks running attack. He also fills a position of need for an offensive line that will lose three linemen to graduation next year, including starters Hroniss Grasu and Jake Fisher. Okun hails from Newbury Park, California and is the #7 offensive guard in the country and the #166 player overall according to the 247composite ranking system.
Speaking with Andrew Greif of the Oregonian, Okun had this to say about his recruitment by the Ducks:
At Oregon you know you're going to get your facilities and your uniforms. But it's more than that really. The atmosphere is by far the best. I got to meet the offensive linemen and I really enjoyed hanging out with them and getting to know them. They seemed like great guys. I honestly can't say that about other places.
Speaking with Justin Hopkins of 247Sports, Okun indicated that he wouldn't be taking any other visits:
I'm done with recruiting. In my mind I'm firmly committed and I won't be taking any other visits.
