The Ducks picked up their 11th commitment in the 2014 class today in linebacker/defensive end Justin Hollins from Arlington, Texas. He chose Oregon over offers from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Baylor, and Missouri, among others.

Hollins is a 6'5, 210 lbs hybrid LB/DE out of Martin High School in Texas, the same school that current Ducks Eric and Stephen Amoako attended. Physically he compares to Torrodney Prevot and Dion Jordan and will likely be asked to play a similar role on Oregon's defense. Hollins is Oregon's third verbal commitment along the defensive line, along with Jalen Jelks and Tui Talia.

As noted by Justin Hopkins, although Hollins does not have a bunch of stars by his name, he is a player that the Ducks offered and recruited early and a player they think can be a big part of their program going forward. Given the Oregon coaching staff's ability to develop underrated talent to date, Hollins' commitment is an important one for the Ducks.

Below you can watch Hollins announce for Oregon in front of his teammates, which is followed up by an interview with Fox Sports' Erin Hartigan.
