The Oregon Ducks are looking to build a strong corps around first-year head coach Mario Cristobal and third-year quarterback Justin Herbert. Recruiting has been part of that effort.
Phil Steele, one of college football’s most respected analysts, released his top 50 freshmen wide receivers of 2018 and ranked Oregon’s Jalen Hall as the fifth-best in the nation.
Last year the top 50 rated true frosh WR's combined for 461 rec's and 6553 yds. Only 3 topped 500 yds receiving. Here is the 2017 list with stats and my top 50 frosh WR signees for 2018. https://t.co/3B86S8ZzhZ
