Will Ducks hold on to their commits?

1/16/2013

With just three weeks to go until recruits from the class of 2013 are able to sign, things are as fluid as they ever have been with signing day approaching. The Oregon Ducks to this point have a small recruiting class, but their commitments all claim to be firm.

A look at the current Oregon commits, with the odds of them signing with the Ducks on signing day:

RB Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha) -- 95%: The No. 54 player in the ESPN 150 is the Ducks' longest-standing commit. He decommitted in November -- for less than 24 hours -- after he informed the Ducks' staff that he wanted to visit UCLA. The U.S. Army All-American has caused Ducks' fans to bite their nails in the past, but he recently affirmed his commitment.

ATH Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto) -- 85%: Rumors circulated that the future Ducks' RB would be taking a visit to Ohio State, but the Under Armour All-American said both publicly and privately that he will not visit Ohio State. He said that even if he did visit Columbus and Chip Kelly had left for the NFL, he would still be a Duck on signing day. As good as Wilson is, other programs won't stop coming after him. Especially when Ohio State's new offense fits Wilson well. Having one of the best closers in recruiting will always keep the Buckeyes in the mix.

OL Evan Voeller (West Linn, Ore./West Linn) -- 99%: The Under Armour All-American has never wavered from his commitment to the in-state Ducks.

WR Tyree Robinson (San Diego/Lincoln) -- 98%: Originally, Tyree Robinson wanted to go to Washington to play both football and basketball, but eventually agreed with his twin brother, Tyrell, that Oregon was the best fit for both of them. They were high-priority targets for several schools -- including the Huskies -- and are still being wooed by a couple programs. Like his brother, the ESPN 300 WR -- who is slotted to play DB at Oregon -- knows Oregon gives them the best shot at showcasing their considerable skill.

ATH Tyrell Robinson (San Diego/Lincoln) -- 98%: Deep down, Tyrell Robinson -- who is projected to play linebacker in college -- always knew Oregon was always the best fit. Once he convinced Tyree that Oregon was the best fit for the pair, the twins officially visited Oregon -- with their mother along for the trip -- in late September. The visit sealed the deal and the four-stars committed before thet even left campus.

WR Darren Carrington Jr. (San Diego/Horizon) -- 80%: The Semper Fidelis All-American has had the words "Oregon Ducks," spelled out on the mirror in his bedroom since the eighth grade. He always has and always will love the Ducks, but has waffled at times and shown interest in visiting other programs. Since he told DuckNation that he was confused and wasn't sure what to think, even after Chip Kelly remained at Oregon, he has gone silent. The odds are still high that he remains a Duck, but anything could happen in the last three weeks.

ATH Chris Seisay (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon) -- 99%: Even after Chip Kelly again flirted with the NFL and other programs began to sniff around, Seisay has remained rock solid to the Ducks and Oregon defensive backs coach John Neal. It would be considered a major upset if the versatile Seisay signed anywhere but Oregon.

ATH Doug Brenner (Portland, Ore./Jesuit) -- 99%: The under-the-radar athlete has never wavered from his commitment to the in-state Ducks. Oregon saw enough in him to offer him at center and the versatile big man intends to prove every program that overlooked him wrong.

OL Jake Pisarcik (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) -- 99%: Oregon offered Pisarcik from across the country when even Stony Brook wasn't convinced that the former tight end is a college-level lineman. He has always loved the Ducks and will be forever grateful for the opportunity to play big-time college football.

ATH Danny Mattingly (Spokane, Wash./Mead) -- 95%: The most recent Ducks pledge was committed to Notre Dame for five months but he has found a program much closer to home that he loves. He flipped once, and there is always a chance, but expect to see Mattingly's name come through the fax machine on signing day.

LB Joe Walker (Palos Verdes, Calif./Los Angeles Harbor College) -- 100%: Walker, a mid-year junior-college transfer signed in the early signing period, is already enrolled and on campus.

K Matt Wogan (Indian Trail, N.C./Porter Ridge) -- 99%: After missed field goals cost Oregon potential berths in the national championship games in 2011 and 2012, Wogan is perhaps the most important recruit in the Ducks' class. Local schools such as North Carolina and South Carolina -- among others -- have come calling, but Wogan will be a Duck.
