William Wilkerson/ESPN.comDontre Wilson's ranking stayed relatively stable, just like Oregon's other ESPN 300 commits, as the DeSoto, Texas, running back is ranked No. 52 in the nation.With Thursday's release of the latest installment of the ESPN 150 and the ESPN 300, it appears that the Oregon Duck commits did nothing to hurt their reputation during the late spring and summer.
The previous edition of the rankings saw the Ducks' first three commits to the class of 2013 among the ESPN 300, with the two running back prospects among the the ESPN 150. There are some major changes among the rankings but the Oregon commits held steady.
RB Dontre Wilson (DeSoto, Tx/DeSoto) made the jump to No. 52 overall in the ESPN 150. Wilson's recent performance at The Opening proved his worth as one of the most electric players in the country. Wilson's standout track and field season, along with some strong on-field showings moved him up to the No. 5 athlete in the rankings. Wilson came in at No. 7 in the previous edition.
RB Thomas Tyner (Aloha, Ore./Aloha) remains on the cusp of the top 100, coming in at No. 104 in the ESPN 150. Tyner's nagging hamstring injury kept him away from the camp circuit which could have given him a bump in the rankings. His talent speaks for itself and so he remains among the top running backs in the country. His absence from camps caused a slight dip in the running back rankings as he moved down from No. 10 to No. 11.
OT Evan Voeller (West Linn, Ore./West Linn) is at No. 175 in the ESPN 300. Voeller has had minimal chances on the camp circuit to improve his stock but has shown enough on film to prove he belongs among the nation's elite. Voeller saw no movement in the offensive tackle rankings as he holds steady at No. 12 in the position rankings.
Some other Oregon targets that saw movement in the new rankings:
Torrodney Prevot (Houston, Tx/Alief Taylor) comes in at No. 243 in the ESPN 300 and remains the No. 19 defensive end in the position rankings for defensive ends.
Scott Pagano (Honolulu, Hi/St. Moanalua) fell to No. 258 in the ESPN 300, while dropping one spot from No. 19 to No. 20 in the position rankings at defensive tackle.
Max Redfield (Misiion Viejo, Calif./Mission Viejo) also remains in the same position as in the previous edition of the rankings as he comes in at No. 37 overall and the No. 2 safety in the country.
Derrick Green (Richmond, Va/Hermitage) has proven himself time and time again on the camp circuit and remains at No. 54 in the ESPN 150. Green is ranked as the No. 6 running back in the country in the position rankings.
Tyree Robinson (San Diego, Calif./Lincoln) remains in the ESPN 300 as the No. 269 player overall, while moving up from No. 44 to No. 43 in the wide receiver position rankings.
