Eugene – it was an underlying question after the sudden departure of Willie Taggart in December; could Oregon maintain its stellar recruiting with a new head coach jumping into the mix?
Considering what Mario Cristobal and co. have been able to compile so far in the 2019 class, that answer would be a resounding yes.
Shortly after gaining commitments from Sean Dollars and Jeremiah Criddell (who at the time was the highest rated CB recruit in Oregon history), Oregon outdid itself once again as four-star and 4th ranked CB MyKael Wright selected Oregon over perennial powers Michigan, Texas, USC, and Alabama.
247Sports ranks the 5’11” 179 pound cover man no. 4 nationally among cornerbacks and composite rankings have him at no. 5. The Valencia, California product is the 10th commitment for the star-studded 2019 recruiting class and the third top 50 player in that group, joining Criddell (no. 46), and linebacker Mase Funa.
