Mario Cristobal’s summer is off to a hot start.
Oregon received verbal commitments from Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu, the No. 1 junior college recruit, and four-star wide receiver Josh Delgado on Sunday.
The Ducks now have 14 known commitments in the 2019 football recruiting class, which is ranked No. 1 in the Pac-12 and No. 6 nationally by 247Sports.
Aumavae-Laulu, a 6-foot-7, 345-pound offensive lineman at Navarro College in Texas, held offers from a list of elite programs, including Alabama, Florida State, Oklahoma and USC.
Delgado was also being recruited by Pac-12 schools Arizona State, Colorado, USC, Washington and Washington State.
Oregon recently picked up nonbinding commitments from defensive end Isaac Townsend of Arvada, Colo., wide receiver JR Waters of Oxnard, Calif., and defensive tackle Suaava Poti of Bellflower, Calif.
Aumavae-Laulu and Delgado give the Ducks eight four-star recruits in the class.
The other four-star prospects currently committed to Oregon are cornerback Mykael Wright (No. 35 overall prospect nationally), Sheldon High tight end Patrick Herbert (quarterback Justin Herbert’s younger brother) and four players from California prep powerhouse Mater Dei (linebacker Mase Funa, cornerback Jeremiah Criddell, running back Sean Dollars and defensive tackle Keyon Ware-Hudson).
