Oregon Ducks Recruiting: Early signing period preview

New, comments
NCAA Football: Oregon State at Oregon Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

This year, there is a bonus National Signing Day, and it’s all going down this week. The early signing period begins tomorrow and runs through Friday. Oregon has built up an impressive recruiting class, and while they have lost some commits after the departure of Willie Taggart, they still appear to be in a good spot.

Scout has the Ducks ranked as the No. 11 class in the nation and No. 2 in the Pac-12 right behind Washington, who is at No. 10.

Oregon has 20 commits in their 2018 class currently, with 10 4-stars and 10 3-stars. More than half of them are expected to sign this week. Here are five players who are expected to put the pen to the paper and sign with Oregon.

Steve Stephens - Safety - 4*

Stephens is one of the highest rated commits on Oregon’s list, ranking No. 116 overall nationally and No. 11 at his position. The 6-foot, 185-pound safety committed to Oregon back in April over other impressive programs like USC, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, LSU and many more. Stephens was named an Under Armour All-American.

Tyler Shough - QB - 4*

Tyler Shough from Chandler, Arizona is the state’s top QB prospect, and the No. 5 pro style QB in the nation. Back in October, Shough flipped from North Carolina to Oregon. Shough had offers from programs like Alabama, Georgia and Michigan. Mi

Adrian Jackson - OLB - 4*

Adrian Jackson is a four-star outside linebacker from Denver, Colorado who is ranked No. 1 in the state and No. 11 for his position nationally. Jackson is 6-foot-2, 210 pounds and had offers from schools like USC, Washington and Ohio State.

Dawson Jaramillo - OL - 4*

Dawson Jaramillo is from right here in Oregon, just up the road in Lake Oswego. The 6-foot-5, 305-pound lineman will bring a serious presence up front to protect Justin Herbert, and is one of three commits for the Ducks from within the state.

Jamal Elliot - RB - 4*

Jamal Elliot is the No. 13 ranked running back in the nation, and could fit nicely in the Ducks offense as they prepare for life after Royce Freeman. He’s small at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, but has the speed Oregon needs. Elliot chose Oregon over schools like LSU, Penn State, Wisconsin, and others.
