Oregon is done with the 2013 class and is in early pursuit of the Class of 2014. Like they did under Chip Kelly, the Ducks are going to take their time and do their due diligence in evaluating recruits with Mark Helfrich at the helm.
The Ducks will still make the same in-depth inquiries about recruits with the potential to earn an offer, but it appears the 2013 recruiting cycle taught them once and for all, that waiting until it's too late can cost a program in a big way. A number of recruits have the Ducks near the top of their lists, and with 2014 being an important class, expect them to be more aggressive than usual in their attempt to replace players they could lose after 2013.
