A day after 4-star tight end Luke Ford announced he was decommitting from Arkansas, the Oregon Ducks have extended an offer to him.

Ford would provide any team he decides to commit to a big body target in the passing game. The tight end stands 6-foot-7 and weighs 250. Not only would Ford provide a solid option in the ariel attack, he would give his future team a solid blocker in the run game.

According to Scoop Duck, Ford is hoping to check out Oregon this summer depending on how the relationship develops.

Currently, the Ducks are on the outside looking in on the Ford sweepstakes. According to 247Sports, Oklahoma is seen as the favorite to land Ford’s talents with Arkansas and Alabama close behind.

Ford is expected to take an unofficial visit to Alabama on June 17 and LSU on June 24.
