The potential recruit roster for Oregon has changed over the last two weeks as quickly as the position of head coach. With a small recruiting class and such a rapid shift from Kelly to Helfrich, Oregon is facing much uncertainty as to which recruits will stick with them in the weeks leading up to signing day. Recently, Oregon has focused a great deal of energy on recruiting two Washington natives in Myles Jack and Danny Mattingly.
Jack, former defensive end and running back at Bellevue High School, offered the versatility of a power player in any position that Oregon could need. However, Jack announced on Monday that his visit to UCLA this past weekend reaffirmed his commitment to their program—taking Jack out of the mix of potential grabs for Oregon.
However, after a home visit from Helfrich Monday night, Mattingly confirmed that he is committed to Oregon.
At 6’4” and 215 pounds, Mattingly played both outside linebacker and tight end. He had 245 receiving yards and 19 tackles in his seasons at Mead High School in Spokane, Washington. Although he was recruited for both linebacker and tight end, it looks as if his playing time will be focused primarily at linebacker.
