Oregon picked up a 2024 commitment Wednesday from a player new offensive coordinator Will Stein knows well.

Melissa (Texas) High athlete Jackson Ford has given his verbal commitment to the Ducks, according to multiple reports. At the time of publication, there was no public announcement from Ford, but he did retweet the duck emoji coach Dan Lanning sent out — usually the bat signal that a player has committed.

Ford plays both sides of the football for Melissa, as a defensive lineman and a tight end. According to DuckTerritory’s Matt Prehm, Oregon is recruiting him for the offensive side of the football.

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Ford holds offers from Arizona State, Cal, Houston, Texas Tech, and Tulane, among others. He also earned an offer from UTSA when Stein was coaching there. He took an unofficial visit to Oregon in January and picked up an offer shortly thereafter.

Ford is currently unranked in the industry-generated 247 Composite, though that’ll likely soon change now that he’s in a Power Five class. His pledge gives Oregon its ninth known commitment for the 2024 cycle.

He earned 7-5A Division II Defensive Newcomer of the Year honors in Texas and was a First-Team All-District selection. You can view his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
