The Ducks have never had the benefit of loading up on local players who dreamt of being Ducks. The truth is, they never will. The Ducks have always recruited California as good as they can be expected to. In recent years, the Ducks have done a great job of going into states like Texas and Arizona to secure commitments from some of the state's top players.
To continue the series of Oregon's recruiting by state, DuckNation examines the success -- or lack there of -- that the Ducks have experienced when recruiting the state of Arizona over the past decade.
