Oregon picked up a key piece in their 2014 recruiting class on National Signing Day when Mattrell McGraw announced that he would attend the University of Oregon. McGraw is a 4-star rated safety according to 247Sports and held offers from the top football programs in the country, including Alabama, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, Texas, Baylor, Florida State, Ohio State, Michigan, and Notre Dame, among many others.

While McGraw was courted by all of the top teams from around the country, Oregon has long been the front-runner to lock up his commitment, due in large part to his strong relationship with DB coach John Neal. A native of New Orleans, Lousiana, McGraw is also from SEC country and it says a lot about the Oregon program and coaching staff that he would turn down the best programs in his region to become a Duck.
