RECENT DEVELOPMENTS: Oregon had two official visitors last weekend for Stanford: three-star defensive end Bralen Trice (Glendale, Ariz.) and three-star linebacker Jared Casey (Louisville, Ky.). Trice will make an official visit to Washington this weekend and has the Ducks in his top two. He hasn't publicly revealed his second school. Casey will officially visit Kentucky this weekend ... Four-star offensive tackle Jonah Tauanu'u (Harbor City, Calif.), who has committed to Oregon, made a surprise unofficial visit to Eugene and stayed through the weekend with his family. There hasn't been any concern about him flipping his commitment to USC or Oklahoma, and the family reported their time in Oregon only strengthened their commitment to the Ducks ... Four-star cornerback Isaiah Rutherford (Carmichael, Calif.) had planned an official visit for this past weekend, but the Duck staff pushed it back. Oregon will now try to bring Rutherford in for a visit in December. The Ducks are looking for one or maybe two defensive backs to add to the 2019 class.
LOOKING AHEAD: Cornerback Devyn King, a 2020 recruit, holds scholarship offers from Nevada, Oregon and San Jose State, and is hearing from every other school in the Pac-12. No school is recruiting him harder, though, than Oregon. King plays at Serra High in Gardena, Calif., which produces some of the best players in California every season. The Ducks are working on getting King and multiple teammates up for a visit later this season ... Five-star defensive end Sav'ell Smalls (Seattle) and four-star wide receiver Gee Scott Jr. (Sammamish, Wash.), both 2020 recruits, were at Oregon's game against Stanford last weekend. It was their second Oregon visit this football season. Both are working on returning to Oregon for the game against Washington in two weeks, or coming back to Autzen for the UCLA game in early November ... Without a football game next weekend, Oregon coaches are expected to fly out most of next week to recruit across the country.
