After a second straight win against USC in Los Angeles gave Oregon its 13th consecutive road victory -- and 12th straight win overall -- the Ducks are flying high, and recruits are taking notice.

In recent years, the Ducks have made a habit of sitting back and letting things play out in recruiting. Last year, they added two ESPN 150 players -- Bralon Addison and Arik Armstead -- at the end of the recruiting cycle. So far this year, the Ducks have a small but talented recruiting class.
