Locke is Oregon's 11th commitment in the 2015 class and brings their class ranking up to #18 in the country.

Summer has been great to the Ducks recruiting class so far as they have picked up six new recruits in eleven days. Following Travis Waller's commitment this morning, safety PJ Locke from Beaumont, Texas announced his commitment to Oregon this afternoon.

Locke is 5'10, 189 lbs and a 3-star recruit according to recruiting services but has the offer list of a 4-star player. In addition to Oregon, Locke had offers from Baylor, Georgia, Missouri, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Stanford, and UCLA, among about 25 others. An excellent student, Locke was also offered by top academic institutions like Duke, Northwestern, and Yale. He is Oregon's 11th overall verbal commitment and second in the defensive backfield, joining Jihree Stewart.

It's been said before but anytime John Neal picks up a defensive back, regardless of his ranking, you have to be excited. Oregon has been as successful as anyone in the country at developing the position and putting guys in the NFL, and there is no reason to think PJ Locke will be any different. On film he shows ball-hawking ability and physicality, a hallmark of players who play the defensive back position at Oregon. You can watch his highlight video below.
