Oregon picked up two more four-star recruits on Monday when safety Trikweze Bridges committed to the Ducks in the morning followed by wide receiver Mycah Pittman in the evening.
The duo gives Oregon 16 players committed to the 2019 recruiting class, including 11 four-star prospects. The Ducks have the top-ranked class in the Pac-12 and are ranked in the top five nationally with nearly five months left before the early signing period begins in December.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Pittman is ranked as the No. 12 receiver in the nation and No. 71 overall recruit by 247Sports.com while Rivals.com lists him 16th at receiver and No. 82 overall. He picked Oregon over Florida with Alabama and Ohio State among the other schools that offered him a scholarship.
Pittman had 55 catches for 1,329 yards and 10 touchdowns as a sophomore at Oaks Christian in Westlake Village, Calif. before transferring to Calabasas (Calif.) High School. He had 60 catches for 1,027 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior.
Pittman adds to a highly-ranked group of receivers set to join the Ducks including four-star recruits Lance Wilhoite and Josh Delgado as well as three-star JR Waters. Four-star tight end Patrick Herbert of Sheldon has also committed to the Ducks.
Bridges, a 6-3, 175-pound safety from Lanett, Ala., is ranked the No. 18 safety in the nation and a Top 300 overall prospect by Rivals while 247Sports has him at No. 30 among safeties.
Bridges had offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Oklahoma, and Georgia.
“I want to thank every school that gave me a chance to be a part of their program, it’s truly an honor” he posted on Twitter. “I want to announce that I am 1000% committed to … The University of Oregon.”
Bridges joins Jeremiah Criddell of Mater Dei as four-star safeties in next year’s recruiting class. The Ducks also have a commitment from four-star cornerback Mykael Wright.
Lanett coach Cliff Story told AL.com that Bridges has a 6-9 wingspan.
“They call him a long strider because he covers so much ground,” Story said. “And with his arm length, he’s able to make plays that the average guy who’s not as long as he is can’t make. They love his knowledge of the game.”
Bridges was an all-state selection as a junior when he had nine interceptions and more than 100 tackles while leading Lanett to its first Class 2A championship. He also had 850 receiving yards and nine touchdown catches.
Lanett won its third straight state basketball title when Bridges scored five points in a 41-38 win over St. Luke’s.
