One of the first offers issued by the Oregon Ducks for the Class of 2014 perfectly demonstrates the Oregon staff's ability to identify targets that are less than household names. The Ducks have been first when it comes to offering a number of recruits who weren't previously being pursued by many programs.
Nowhere have they been better than this than where it really matters. Ducks' offensive line coach Steve Greatwood has done a masterful job throughout his career at identifying under-the-radar prospects. Greatwood is at it again in the Class of 2014, as an Oregon offer propelled the recruitment of one of the top OL prospects in the west.
