Copy. Cut. Paste. Oregon picked up another offensive line commitment today, it's third in as many days. Jake Hanson took an unofficial visit to Oregon over the weekend, was informed by the coaching staff that there was only one spot left at the position in this class, and promptly made his commitment.

Hanson is 6'5, 285 lbs according to 247Sports, and a three-star recruit according to various recruiting services. The star rating really isn't important here as Hanson is exactly the type of O-line recruit that has thrived at Oregon under coach Greatwood. Long arms, big frame, and gets up the field quickly, as you can see from his video highlights below. He's also versatile. Hanson informed 247Sports recruiting analyst Matt Prehm that he could play anywhere on the line, even center:

"They said they like where I am at currently for my weight and that once I get to campus they'll mold me into where they see me best," Hanson said. "Greatwood said I could even be playing some center because I fit what he's looking for. Coming in I'll start at tackle and we'll see where that goes."

Oregon is likely done recruiting the offensive line as they now have five total commits at the position. Before all of the transfers this spring, it was thought that Oregon would likely take a smaller class of around 15, but it now looks like they will have the room to take a class of around 20 in a year in which the west is loaded with talent. The Ducks currently have eight verbal commitments in the 2015 class.
