When Eddie Vanderdoes (Auburn, Calif./Placer) made his pledge to the USC Trojans on Wednesday, the Oregon Ducks missed out on perhaps their most important target in the class of 2013.

Losing out on a recruit to USC is nothing new, but the Ducks typically find a way to soften the blow. So where do the Ducks go from here?

The defensive line is always a position of need, especially in Eugene. Putting together another strong class of defensive linemen to add to last year's crop of talented big men would have the Ducks flying higher than ever before. Losing out on Vanderdoes might seem like a big blow, but it's only July and a lot can change between now and signing day.
