Recent Developments: Three-star tight end Seth Figgins, a 2020 prospect, unofficially visited Oregon last week and committed to the Ducks one day later. Figgins arrived in Eugene with his parents Friday afternoon, stayed through Sunday afternoon and verbally committed Monday evening after he returned home to Thousand Oaks, Calif. Figgins cited Oregon's commitment to him despite an injury suffered during his sophomore season that has kept him out of football until this week. Figgins picked Oregon over USC ... Kayvon Thibodeaux (Westlake Village, Calif.), the nation's No. 1 recruit for 2019, made an official visit over the weekend for the Washington football game. The 6-foot-5 defensive end said he wasn't too high on Oregon going into the weekend, but now has the Ducks in a three-way tie with Florida State and Alabama. Thibodeaux said he'll now announce his commitment sooner than expected, with a planned date of Dec. 15 ... Four-star cornerback MyKael Wright (Valencia, Calif.), who has verbally committed to the Ducks, made his official visit to Oregon for the Washington game. Wright said following the visit he's firm with the Ducks and will sign in December. He also plans to try to enroll at Oregon in time to take part in spring practice in 2019.
Looking Ahead: Four-star and top-50 prospect Chris Steele (Bellflower, Calif.) announced Thursday he was no longer committed to USC. Steele picked USC over South Carolina, Oklahoma, Florida and Oregon in July. He's made all five of his official visits already but is now working on unofficial visits to Oregon, Florida and potentially Oklahoma. Steele and MyKael Wright were told they are Oregon's top two targets at cornerback for the class of 2019 ... Three-star defensive end Tyler Garay-Harris (Oakland, Calif.) is a former high school teammate of UO freshman safety Jevon Holland. Garay-Harris says he started talking with Oregon coaches recently. They are recruiting him to play outside linebacker and could bring him in for an official visit in December. Oregon hasn't offered yet ... Oregon is planning to bring in most of its verbal commitments for official visits in December during the two weekends available before National Signing Day. This will serve as a chance for Oregon to get all the recruits on campus one final time to prevent any rival school from having them in for an official visit just before National Signing Day.
