Teitum is a 6-foot-3, 220-pound edge rusher. He rates as a 3-star prospect in the industry-generated 247 Composite as well as the 51st prospect at his position. He’ll play his senior season of ball for Sheldon in Eugene.
Head coach Dan Lanning brought Tony aboard last December from Nebraska, where he spent three seasons. The Huskers got an official visit from Teitum back in June, but it was the Ducks winning out at the end of the day.
Teitum spent his junior season of high school ball at Lincoln (Neb.) Southeast and was highly productive. He piled up 71 tackles, 7.5 sacks, a forced fumble, a blocked punt, an interception, and a pass breakup. He also hauled in a receiving touchdown with a bit of work on the offensive side of the ball.
His commitment gives the Ducks their ninth known pledge for the 2023 class, a group that ranks among the 35 best in the country.
