The 6-foot, 180-pound Presley rates as a 4-star prospect in the 2023 class, per the 247 Composite. He’s the ninth-best corner in the country and the top prospect from the state of Washington. Overall, he’s the 78th-ranked recruit in the class.
Michigan State was the only one of Presley’s finalists to get an official visit from him, but the Ducks were viewed as the team to beat here. In the end, those relationships with the defensive coaching staff Dan Lanning has put together in Eugene won out.
“The coaches were about 80% of the decision,” Presley told 247Sports’ Brandon Huffman. “I have trust in this staff. Of course, the facility is nice but the people in the building make it 10x better.”
Presley’s becomes the Ducks’ highest-rated verbal pledge. He’s the 10th known commit to join the class and the third corner. Oregon also has verbal commitments from 4-star corner Cole Martin and 3-star Collin Gill.
