Recent Developments: Oregon will hold its first big recruiting weekend of the year this weekend when the football team plays Stanford. Among those expected to make official visits are 2019 four-star linebacker Jared Casey and 2019 three-star defensive end Bralen Trice. Casey is being recruited to play inside linebacker and hails from Louisville, Ky., but he's looking to leave the area for college. Trice can play defensive end or linebacker and is from the Phoenix area ... 2020 five-star quarterback DJ Uiagalelei (Bellflower, Calif.) and 2020 five-star linebacker Sav'ell Smalls (Seattle) also will be in town for unofficial visits. Both are ranked in the top five for the 2020 recruiting class and, while early in the process, they are high on the Ducks ... 2020 four-star wide receiver Gee Scott Jr. (Sammamish, Wash.) will be back in Eugene for the second consecutive weekend for an unofficial visit. Scott was on campus for the San Jose State game as well ...

Looking ahead: With 21 verbal commitments and an estimated of just four to six spots left to fill for the 2019 recruiting class, the Oregon coaching staff can be very selective about when and who it brings in for official visits. Don't expect Oregon to use all its available official visits for the 2019 class ... 2020 in-state prospects Silas Starr (Central Catholic) and Jalen John (Lakeridge) both hold scholarship offers from the Ducks and both have confirmed they'll be making multiple trips to Eugene this fall during Pac-12 play ... Four-star prospects Jeremiah Criddell and Sean Dollars, who have committed to Oregon, were awarded their Under Armour All-American jerseys this week. The teammates at Mater Dei High School in Southern California will play in the high school All-American game in Orlando, Fla., on Jan. 3 The game will be televised on ESPN2.
