Another Linequacker!

Recruiting master Mario Cristobal is hoping that the Autzen atmosphere can help him snag a few more commitments for the class of 2019 when the Ducks play the huskies, but Jared Casey of Louisville, Kentucky couldn’t wait. So, a couple of days ago, he quacked.

The 4-star linebacker is ranked 18th nationally at his position by 247, and the 6th best prospect out of the state of Kentucky. At 6’ 3 and 220 pounds, Casey could see serious playing time within his first couple of years, though fortunately there’ll be plenty of competition for starting roles with the addition of fellow four-star commits Mase Funa and Ge’Mon Eaford.

Casey told the Louisville Courier Journal, “Oregon has always been my dream school since I was little. I have a big opportunity to play early with there (sic) starters leaving next year. I just couldn’t see myself playing for anyone else next year.”


Casey is Oregon’s 22nd commit and 14th four-star in the class of 2019, according to the 247 composite. His commitment brings the Ducks’ 2019 class to number four nationally, behind Alabama, Texas A&M, and Georgia. Should Cristobal land all these commits (don’t hold your breath), this would be the highest rated class in Duck history.

The Ducks still lead the PAC in recruiting. Trailing Oregon is:

  • No. 19 USC
  • No. 23 Washington
  • No. 25 Stanford
  • No. 33 Colorado
  • No. 39 California
  • No. 55 Arizona State
  • No. 68 Oregon State
  • No. 74 Arizona
  • No. 76 Washington State
  • No. 85 UCLA
  • No. 98 Utah
