These past two weeks, Oregon hasn’t offered many new recruits. Oregon has a next wave of offers coming and they are looking at all of their options. Here are some recruits in which I would offer.

Quarterback: If I’m being honest, I don’t really know who Oregon has at the top of their board for quarterbacks. That being said, I can make an educated guess on where the next QB offer might end up. One recruit who has been open about Oregon recruiting him is Malik Cunningham. He has tweeted out how "The Oregon Ducks are making a real push #WTD" and has retweeted many pro-Oregon tweets from fans. Also, Cunningham, talked to Andrew Nemac of The Oregonian about Oregon: "’Right now, they (Oregon) have been at me the hardest…Coach Yost is my guy. We are building a good relationship." Cunningham also added his high hopes for an offer, "’I'll make a trip down in the summer, for sure…They are going to offer soon – just going through the process. I wouldn't visit without that offer, but it's coming soon.’" If you want to read the full article click here.

An under the radar quarterback with tremendous upside is 3* Jack Haener. The Monte Vista (CA) (Monte Vista is also the same school Jeff Lockie attended) QB is mostly a pro-style QB, but he is incredibly mobile in the pocket. He’s a sneaky mobile QB, kind of like Aaron Rodgers, who can beat you for 5-10 yards with his feet. Haener has been practicing being in shotgun because most of his offers run the spread, but he also practices calling plays under center. Oregon could use his versatility to give defenses different looks throughout the game. He has garnered some looks from Washington and many more P5 schools due to his recent success in The Elite 11 competition. Haener is a great option Oregon should look into because of his mobility and his versatility as a signal caller.

KJ Jarrell 3* S: The Saguaro (AZ) safety hasn’t been gaining too much attention as of late. His recruitment as cooled off a bit, but Jarrell still boasts offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, and Notre Dame. Jarrell’s recruitment is wide open because he is going to wait after the season is over to deal with his college decision. He has great close out speed which pairs nicely with his ability to always be in great position. Also, Jarrell is a ferocious and hard-hitting tackler due to his size and strength. His instincts and toughness, along with his speed and positional skills makes Jarrell an interesting recruit.

Kekaula Kaniho 3* CB: The Kuhuku (HI) product has seen his recruitment pick up a bit in the last few weeks. He has offers from Vanderbilt, Washington State, Hawaii, and Colorado. Oregon is one of many teams interested in the CB/S. On the field, Kaniho is a ball hawk. In his junior campaign, Kaniho intercepted 10 balls and scored 5 TDs to lead Kuhuku to a state championship. His length, 6-0, and his ability to jump routes has led to many turnovers and are just a few top notch skills Kaniho possesses. Kaniho is a name to watch in the coming summer months.

Charles Watson 3* S: Another Hawaii product is this Leilehua safety. Watson some offers in which include these Pac-12 schools: Colorado, Washington State, and Oregon State. Watson is drawing heavy interest from all of the California schools, USC, UCLA, and Cal as well as the rest of the Pac-12. Oregon is just starting to get into the picture, but that isn’t a problem. Watson told me he wants to take all of his official visits, so Oregon has some time to evaluate him and build a relationship. Watson is a 6-2 safety with a hard hitting mentality, and can be a huge force in the run game. His length also allows him to cover more ground out at FS and his catch radius is bigger than an average safety. Watson has the size and length to become a great college safety wherever he ends up.
