Offensive Lineman Shane Lemieux Commits to Oregon

Shane Lemieux commits to Oregon over South Carolina and Boise State.

Oregon had several visitors in town for today's Spring game and received a new commitment from offensive lineman Shane Lemieux, who announced the news via Twitter:

Lemieux is a 6'6, 285 lbs offensive guard from Yakima, Washington. In addition to Oregon he had offers from most of the Pac-12, as well as Louisville, Michigan, Arkansas, and Miami, among others. In addition to Oregon, Boise State and South Carolina were also finalists. Lemieux is a 3-star rated recruit according to the 247composite but his size and offer list suggests he could continue climbing up the rankings.

Not even 17 years old, Lemieux has the size and frame to continue adding weight and is already a college-sized lineman. He is a player who Oregon targeted very early -- the Ducks were his first offer -- which always says a lot about how high the coaching staff is on his ability, regardless of his ranking by recruiting websites. Offensive lineman is a priority in the 2015 class with multiple upperclassmen comprising the projected 2-deep in 2014 and the Ducks now have two highly regarded players in Lemieux and 4-star guard Zach Okun.

Back in March, our own Jake Tabor had this to say about Lemieux's prospects at Oregon:

After reviewing Shane's film, it shows him as much better of a run blocker than a pass blocker. However, with Steve Greatwood at coach there is little doubt that he can improve there.

Lemieux has a lean frame and good speed and could put on a little weight. Watching his highlight film, it's apparent that Lemieux gets good leverage and has a good push up field instead of simply holding defenders up where they stand.

He is also versatile, often times West Valley had him line up in the extra TE position to assist in blocking along the edge as they went off tackle. This bodes well as it shows his ability to perhaps move out to a tackle position and maybe take on more, similar to a guy like Max Unger.

In addition to Lemieux, Oregon also had recent 5* running back commitment Taj Griffin on hand, as well as 5* defensive tackle Jacob Daniel and 4* offensive lineman Tim Lynott. Lemieux is Oregon's fourth commitment in the 2015 class.
