Does anything sound better than, “Herbert to Herbert for the win!”?

Now that we’re deep in the offseason, it seems a perfect time to review a few of Oregon’s 2019 recruits.

And there’s no better place to start than Patrick Herbert. The four star tight end from Eugene has received a lot of attention from Duck fans for a plethora of reasons: he’s a kid from Track Town, he’s a talented pass-catcher with promising size (6’5, 225 pounds), and most intriguing of all, his brother happens to be star quarterback Justin Herbert.

Much like Justin, Patrick Herbert has flown under the radar as far as national recruiting is concerned. He currently sits at No. 14 in 247’s tight end ranking and is the 2nd best player out of Oregon’s 2019 class.

He will potentially join these commits, to name a few.

Herbert’s offer list is short but impressive: Oregon, California, Florida, Nebraska, Penn State, and national powerhouse Oregon State. It’s possible that Herbert receives more offers before signing day, but he’s the Ducks’ most likely commit (knock on wood) considering his connection to the city, the school, and our quarterback. Would Patrick’s commitment be enough to convince Justin to stick around for his senior year? Only time will tell.

And we’ll end on Herbert’s Hudl in which he looks pretty damn impressive.
