Oregon lands in top seven for blue-chip 2024 wideout from Texas
Oregon already has two top-100 wideouts committed to its 2024 class, and it’s firmly in the mix for adding a third.
Daingerfield (Texas) 4-star wideout Aeryn Hampton announced his top seven on Wednesday, and it included the Ducks alongside Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, Michigan, and Nebraska. The Ducks appear to be making inroads in Texas recruiting. They signed six from the state in the 2023 class, including 4-star quarterback Austin Novosad. Oregon also pulled 4-star corner Khamari Terrell from the state in the 2022 class.
