The Oregon Ducks are putting together their 2018 recruiting class and are stocking up with talent at every position. In a busy weekend full of big commits, Oregon’s best prospect was Miles Battle out of Houston (Tx.) Cy Creek. The wide receiver made the call to become a Duck and join one of the best preseason classes in college football.
Battle picked Oregon over Baylor, LSU, Ole Miss and TCU, all of whom made his top five.
Battle is a four-star wideout according to 247Sports Composite (0.9032), holding nearly 30 offers overall. He’s the 50th best wide receiver overall and the 38th best Texas prospect. Battle is the second four-star wide receiver to commit to Oregon this cycle, joining Warren Thompson.
"Battle, a 6'4" and 187-pound wide receiver from Cypress (Texas) Creek has a big-bodied frame, but has uncanny athleticism and playmaking skills inside of it," Brandon Huffman of Scout.com wrote in his scouting report. "He has good vertical skills and a great catch radius and that makes it an impossible task for smaller defensive backs to limit his effectiveness. He has put up great numbers under the lights and has shown on the camp circuit that he can test as well as anyone."
