Oregon Football Signs 13 Players to 2018 Recruiting Class During Early Signing Period

Oregon Football signed 13 players to their 2018 recruiting class on Wednesday, taking advantage of the newly established early signing period. One of the perceived advantages of the Ducks’ hiring of Mario Cristobal as their head coach weeks ago was that he could help salvage Oregon’s strong recruiting class after Willie Taggart’s departure, and with seven four-star players finalizing their commitments, Oregon has a strong claim to doing that on Wednesday. Listen below as Mario Cristobal discusses the Ducks’ 2018 early signing day.
