The Oregon Ducks had a much smaller class than expected due to a series of decommitments. There are still plenty of talented guys coming in, but it's a much smaller group than usual. Still, there are some pretty good talents that should upgrade both sides of the football.

National Signing Day 2016: 4-star WR Dillon Mitchell signs with Oregon [Addicted to Quack]: "Mitchell was also named to the USA Today All-USA Second Team Offense after a senior season where he gained 1,155 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns, as well as 652 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns. Mitchell runs a 40 in the range of 4.40-4.60, to go along with a 37-inch vertical."

National Signing Day 2016: Meet Early Enrollee ILB A.J. Hotchkins [Addicted to Quack]: "After two seasons at Riverside City College in California and 200 tackles later, he accepted an offer from Oregon to sign with the Ducks as the third-ranked inside linebacker in the country, signing in December to meet the midyear signing date for junior college transfers to participate in spring practices."

National Signing Day 2016: Darrian Franklin signs with the Ducks [Addicted to Quack]: "A late scratch for the Semper Fi All-American Bowl in early January and a participant in The Opening football camp last summer, Franklin is listed at 6'1 and 210 pounds and saw snaps at wide receiver in high school. However he's seen as exclusively a true linebacker in college. With a 40 time of 4.71 seconds, he's described as a physical and bruising linebacker who can force fumbles."
