Mario Cristobal and his staff have already proven to be one of the best recruiting units in the country, and with the commitment of 4* WR Mycah Pittman, the Ducks now possess the fourth best recruiting class of 2019 according to 247.
The pass catcher is the son of NFL running back Michael Pittman, and is from Calabasas, California. He decided to go with the Ducks after an unofficial visit in May. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound receiver is the 11th ranked player at his position, 13th ranked coming out of California, and 69th overall.
Pittman credited Oregon’s top-notch facilities and attentive coaching staff as the major factors of his decision. Though Michael Johnson is specifically mentioned as the primary recruiter- who’s earned four commitments already for the class of 2019.
This Duck class currently ranks below only three teams: Alabama, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma. Oregon has a healthy lead over the rest of the PAC, No. 32 Washington trailing as a distant second.

In his junior season highlights, Pittman shows off his elusive moves and elite pass-catching ability. What’s most impressive is his composure with the ball the second it hits his hands. There are also a few worthwhile clips of Pittman with some aggressive blocks. We can only pray that Oregon’s recent success at recruiting wide receiver will convince Herbert to consider another year at U of O.
Film Review - THE COMMiTMENT
Teams that were interested in Mycah Pittman were forced to wait through the production of a high-budget commitment short-film. Pittman intended to make his mark on the offseason by creating a cinematic experience covering his recruiting journey.
THE COMMiTMENT is a film about young Pittman’s decision making process as he reflects on the words of his family: His father calls and suggests Washington, his mother likes Florida, and his brother remembers when they used to play as kids.
Perhaps that’s why the “i” in commitment is the only letter not capitalized? Pittman’s decision weighs heavy with the well-meaning suggestions of his loved ones. The video then takes a tonal shift, as we see the recruit training. The music becomes droney and dirty, and Pittman trains with a fiery energy.
We visit the field, we walk with Pittman and his younger self, and in the end we leap with him towards the endzone against impossible odds. And it all ends with Mycah throwing the O.
One thing is for sure- this video will look awfully silly if he decommits.
