Oregon defensive line coach Tony Tuioti earned his second commitment of the week on Wednesday.

My’Keil Gardner, a 3-star lineman from Peoria (Az.) Liberty, announced his commitment to the Ducks via social media. One of the top prospects in the state this cycle, he picked the Ducks over interest from Cal, Michigan, Texas, and Wisconsin. Several at 247Sports had logged Crystal Ball predictions for Michigan to be the pick for Gardner, but it was the Ducks winning out at the end of the day.

The 6-foot-2, 275-pounder checks in as a 3-star in the industry-generated 247 Composite. He’s the 59th-ranked defensive lineman in the 2023 class and the 11th-ranked prospect out of Arizona. Overall, a 0.8826 Composite score puts him at No. 494 in the class.

Gardner took official visits to Wisconsin (June 3), Michigan (June 10), and Texas (June 17) throughout June before making his way to Eugene for the final weekend of the month. He was part of the Ducks’ massive visitor group on hand, giving Oregon another win from what is proving to be a very successful weekend.

Though his Composite ranking might not suggest it at face value, Gardner is one of Arizona’s best this cycle. As a junior for Liberty last fall, he was a monster. Gardner put up 86 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, and five pass breakups. He played with his hand in the dirt or from an upright position and showed off pretty good burst at the snap of the ball.

His verbal pledge gives the Ducks their 13th known commitment in the 2023 class.
