Keisean Lucier-South, Orange (Ca.) Lutheran defensive end: Oregon will have some ground to make up to battle with the traditional powers. Notre Dame, Texas, USC and UCLA are some of the best schools.
Arden Key, Atlanta (Ga.) Hapeville Charter defensive end: SEC schools will probably have the inside track on Key.
Byron Cowart, Seffner (Fl.) Armwood defensive end: Oregon will try to pry Cowart out of the South, particularly against a school like Florida. The Ducks are in the mix .
Daylon Mack, Gladewater (Tx.) defensive tackle: Mack is already committed to Texas A&M, so the Ducks are probably going to have trouble here.
Jacob Daniel, Clovis (Ca.) North defensive tackle: Daniel was a Tosh Lupoi target, but that ship has sailed.
Cecil Cherry, Frostproof (Fl.) linebacker: Cherry is currently committed to Tennessee.
Jeffrey Holland, Jacksonville (Fl.) Trinity Christian Academy linebacker: There are a lot of SEC and ACC schools in the mix.
Montrell Curtis, Hampton (Ga.) Lovejoy cornerback: Curtis is currently committed to Kentucky.
Maurice Smitherman, Adamsville (Al.) Minor cornerback: Oregon has extended plenty of offers to Southern schools, which means they have a lot of competition for all these players. There will be far more offers coming down the road.
