It would appear that Ashton Cozart very much liked what Eugene has to offer.

The 4-star wideout, fresh off an official visit to Oregon, announced his commitment to the Ducks. He had been an Oklahoma commit dating back to February, but said in a message shared to social media that “I’ve grown up in the Pacific Northwest most of my life, and have dreamed of playing (at Oregon) since I was a kid.”

A 6-foot-2.5 wideout from Flower Mound (Texas), Cozart is rated as a 4-star prospect and the 164th overall recruit in the 2023 class, according to the 247 Composite. He’s the 23rd-ranked wideout and the 32nd-ranked player from the state of Texas.

Cozart’s speed flashes on his tape. As a junior, he hauled in 36 receptions for 680 yards and 11 touchdowns. He ran the 100-meter dash in 10.74 seconds and has a verified 4.45-second 40 time. He also has a confirmed 10-foot-8 broad jump and a 77-inch wingspan, giving him a strong catch radius for an outside receiver.

247Sports’ regional recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks had this to say on Cozart’s game:

“Projects as a bona fide high-major receiver who should be able to stretch the field in most scenarios. Owns the physical tools and proven athleticism to provide a high developmental ceiling that could possibly lead to all-conference production and eventual NFL Draft consideration.”

He’ll join fellow blue-chip wideout Jurrion Dickey in the Ducks’ 2023 class. Both will participate in All-America bowls. The class now stands at five known commits, three of which have come during the month of May.
