Lots of recruiting news from yesterday, both good and bad. Here's your Tuesday quack:
- With signing day tomorrow, several Oregon targets made their decisions known yesterday. Four-star running back Dontre Wilson changed his verbal commitment to Ohio State, citing Chip Kelly taking the Philadelphia job the day after visiting him and his family as a factor. In other bad news, three-star LB and Oregon prep Johnny Ragin announced he was sticking with his commitment to Cal despite a late Oregon offer. The Ducks also received good news when Darren Carrington reaffirmed his verbal commitment and four-star OL Cameron Hunt, who had previously been a verbal commit to Cal under Jeff Tedford, announced he would sign with Oregon.
- Aaron Fentress has a profile on quarterback Damion Hobbs, who recently announced his intention to sign with Oregon.
- After dropping both games last week, the men's basketball team was dropped down to #19 in both the AP and the coaches polls. The Ducks will look to continue their 20-game home winning streak this week to take on Colorado and Utah.
- In his weekly look around the conference, Bob Clark discusses some of the races for the individual conference awards, including the player, freshman and coach of the year. And, in his latest ranking, Oregon is dropped down to #2.
- The softball team was chosen third in the preseason poll by conference coaches, behind Cal and Arizona State.
