Oregon commit trolls Colorado on Early Signing Day, signs NLI with the Ducks
Oregon finalized the signing of one key prospect Wednesday after a late push from Deion Sanders and Colorado.
The player involved is offensive lineman JacQawn McRoy out of Clay-Chalkville High School in Pinson, Alabama. A 4-star offensive tackle, McRoy committed to the Ducks in July but had interest from Colorado ahead of Early Signing Day.
At an event to confirm his final decision, McRoy even trolled the Buffs, initially donning a Colorado hat to gasps from the audience. In the end, he finalized he’s sticking with the Ducks.

Oregon has since confirmed McRoy’s National Letter of Intent with the program:

Oregon also pulled off a massive Early Signing Day flip, landing 4-star wide receiver Jeremiah McClellan away from a commitment to Ohio State. Dan Lanning’s Ducks are now up to the No. 6 recruiting class in the country per the 247 Sports Team Composite with 19 4-star players.
