The Alamo Bowl taught every Duck fan the importance of depth at center. The commitment of Joey Capra, the nation’s no. 9 prospect at his position, is a huge win for Cristobal and staff. Better yet, it’s also a loss for Arizona State. Capra committed to the Sun Devils about a month ago, but an offer from his dream school combined with the opportunity to play with his brother Jacob Capra proved too tempting.
The 6’4, 275-pound Californian from Placer High School is a notably stellar student. In fact, Capra turned down offers from Harvard, Princeton and Yale to attend the U of O. He’s on pace to graduate in December, meaning he could possibly enroll early.

The Ducks are currently ranked 5th in 247’s 2019 recruiting rankings. The four teams ahead of Oregon in order are Alabama, Georgia, Texas A&M, and Clemson. So far, the Ducks have the best class out of the PAC-12, and it’s not even close. Oregon is fifth, followed by Washington at 28, then Cal, Colorado and USC at 36, 38. 40, respectively.
