One of the top high school players that all Duck fans have been watching is Colt Lyerla, the 4-star LB/TE prospect from Hillsboro who has had the Ducks high on his list for some time. Well, the speculation is over, as he just publically chose Oregon at the U.S. All-American game.
Colt is 6'5" 225lbs and incredibly athletic, and would fit well at both offense and defense.
Lyerla's addition will help this Oregon class make a move toward top 5 nationally. According to Rivals (before Lyerla's commitment), the Ducks sat at 8th nationally, and already have 10 4-star commitments. It's a great time to be a Duck, and hopefully it'll get even better on Monday.
