Coach Dan Lanning said earlier this week that Oregon, despite a short business trip to Arizona, would try and get some assistants out on the recruiting trail while they were on the road. In most places, but especially with this specific staff Lanning has assembled in Eugene, recruiting never sleeps.

And on the eve of Oregon’s Week 6 game against the Arizona Wildcats, the Ducks landed a verbal commitment from a 3-star interior offensive lineman from Palm Desert, California.

Bryce Boulton, a 6-foot-3, 255-pound 2023 prospect, announced his commitment to the Ducks on social media, sharing a message and a video.

Boulton told 247Sports he has been a silent commit for the Ducks since visiting for a Saturday Night Live event back in July. That was a month after attending a camp and walking away with an offer. Oregon, he told 247Sports, has always been his dream school.

The interior offensive lineman ranks as the 73rd prospect at his position in the 2023 class, according to the industry-generated 247 Composite. He’s the 84th-ranked recruit from the state of California. 247Sports’ Greg Biggins had this to say on his game:

He has a rock solid 6-3, 255 pound frame and is built like a tank. He has tackle length and feet but probably slides inside and ends up at guard or center. He’s a strong kid, a plus athlete and isn’t even close to hitting his ceiling. He’s definitely a stock up player for us and his senior tape shows he’s trending in the right direction.

His verbal pledge gives the Ducks their 19th known commit for the 2023 class. The group ranks 13th nationally. You can view some of Boulton’s senior season highlights below, via Hudl:
